Boyd Rice & Frank Tovey – Easy Listening for the Hard of Hearing

   Listening to the 12 Excerpts off of Easy Listening for the Hard of Hearing is like walking through an empty factory, whose machines are running themselves.

   All the sounds from this record were compiled from non-musical sources: firehoses, gas jets, scraping floors, et al. and then fastidiously assembled into an industrial bricolage. Like a Cornell box sprung to life, or The Brothers Quay if they decided to make musique concrete, these ‘excerpts’ (as all the songs on this record are titled), are predominantly rhythmic, with occasional smatterings of gelatinous melodies that bring to mind early industrial stalwarts like Coil, Throbbing Gristle, perhaps Einsturzende Neubauten.
