This single is a perfect example of the lengths he's going in recording....check out a sample on Dirty's myspace. This Magnedisk device is insane, I can't find that much info anywhere online, but it sure makes Pumice sound like a warbly nightmare...he really takes advantage of this insane format to then transpose it to another obsolete format. I have to respect someone that can create something you'll never hear anyone else attempt. Let alone I know nothing about gFrenzy...probably someone else that's going to take another seven inch to get me to look into. For God's sake I just won my first R. Stevie Moore single on ebay. Some things inexplicably pass me by.
I like Doug's take on it, even die hard low-fi disciples are going to have to prepare themselves for the sound of this mess.
Get it from dirty knobby, who I also respect for pressing this for maniacs like me.
Magnedisk Recordings Of gFrenzy Songs
PS, US Bleedin' gorgeous! PUMICE covers 4 songs by NZ genius recluse GFRENZY, & the results will make you want to throw all yr other records out the window. Seriously unique & utterly gleeful warble-fi gems. Stefan says, "It's a pretty rugged record. 4 gFrenzy songs, I recorded it on this weird dictation machine from the 1940s. The speed is inconsistent so it sounds wobbly too. All live all mono. Hope you like it." LIMITED TO 500
