SLUGWRENCH - Prole (CD, Intolerance, Electronic)
Here's an odd one. One man electronic band Jason Shepherd uses every trick in the book that has already been used with electronics...yet he makes it all sound new again. Let's face it. There's very little that hasn't been done in music, so the thing that matters most nowadays is how it's done. There's a lot of creativity and imagination that went into the making of these tunes. Sounds mutate, blip in and out, merge, and shift in a continually confusing fashion on Prole. The disc is very uncommercial, yet it doesn't really sound like the majority of electronic CDs on the market. Could be that these folks (most likely) created this work in isolation somewhere out in Oklahoma. Twenty puzzlers, including "Drat," "GagSlug," and "Dorkscrew."
