Hello. I spent nearly 10 years selling on that other site (you can check my feedback there; It's under the same ID as this one; over 3200 positives, 99.7%). But I thought I'd give this new site a try.
Like all of my cds, this is an Original CD, with original inserts (NO CD-Rs or bootlegs).....
Crude is someone called Matt Middleton, a clarinet, a guitar, a synthesiser, drums, some other stuff. Plus sometimes a few other people. And Inner City Guitar Perspectives on Flying Nun (there's still life here!) is as beautifully wrecked as this can all be whilst still retaining an air of easy listening "respectability." Honestly, if you ignore the cheap cynicism of a few of the tracks (or not, you choose) this is a startlingly good release, and one you should be listening to right now. Who is this person, and does he really have "16 albums worth of material" as claimed in the liner notes on the CD? Dunno, but at least one of these may-or-may-not-be LPs turned up as volume 2 of the Center of the Ass Run series, an inexplicable subset of the equalling confounding Actuel Ass Run series, undoubtedly the product of pot-addled minds making for some very happy listening. The Crude release Refute a Myth Society is like a compressed version of Inner City Guitar Perspectives; but with more churn and cheesiness (listen to that synth!) Crawlspace Records have a single available Bionica featuring a very primitive electronic rhythm, anyone remember Cabaret Voltaire? Another single came out on the Trinder label though I've yet to hear it. On top of all this is a CD Sax Sothis (Juggernaut Records) featuring what I can only assume is some sort of revenge against 70s-era music combined with much heavy-duty synth fuckery and some mean clarinet/sax stylings. Plus an unexpected thirty minutes (or so) of fine noise/guitar feedback spew at the end. Crude is really very good, and there is more out there, cassettes and lathe cuts. Perhaps the best way to get in touch is via the Unearth homepage. As to "who this person is," he fits somewhere into the weird "garage"/"scum" rock scene based around a bunch of people from Christchurch and Dunedin, bands like Brother Love and Space Dust with some nicely fucked rock records out on a variety of labels. I don't quite know what is happening with these people nowadays, but pay attention to the names and listen to what they have done/are doing. Other Middleton-related projects include All Electric a duo of Middleton and Shaun Jury with a CD-R of 50 copies plus a lathe-cut single on Crude's own Dirtlove label - well gone now. If you ever see the CD grab it fast and wallow in the low-fi guitar churn overlaid with cracked synthesizer; it culminates in an incredible extendo-blurt piece of monster-sized proportions. Jury and Middleton also come together in the Aesthetics with a track on the Fit For Kings compilation (see below), a bunch of lathe cuts, and more importantly, a great Ecstatic Peace LP My Right To Riches, prime scuzz-punk described by Byron Coley (I think) as like "prime dead c copping moves from the killed by death series or chrome buried in grime".
