Wiseblood | Motorslug | Wax Trax! | 1985

What would our re-dedication to this blog be without posting the track that inspired it all? Motorslug by Wiseblood, the alter-ego of Clint Ruin aka JG Thirlwell aka Foetus and Roli Mossiman of Swans [among others]. A classic slab of demented, driving collage of sound run through the industrial-strength food processor that is Foetus’ brain. In his own words, the project was an attempt at “violent macho American music made by non-Americans.” Keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel!

You’ll probably notice that side B of this 12″ is missing from the download below. This is because you can re-create it in the comfort of your own home– simply take the loop that repeats at the end of side A, repeat it for 7 and 1/2 minutes, and BAM! You’ve now re-created “Death Rape 2000”. Fun AND educational!
