An out-of-time-into-the-future album, reminiscent of the plunderphonics approach of the eighties and beyond, now released in a Black Hole Time Warp + Chili Com Carne joint venture.

 There are various Blunt Instruments, but this particular one is André Lemos (...) Over a period of one-and-a-half years, he worked on the fourteen tracks on his debut cassette and throughout, there is a powerful love for plunderphonics to be noted. Blunt Instrument lifts his sounds left and right, everything from drums, guitars and vocals. The result is a wild mix of sounds, songs, ideas and sketches. Some of these are firmly rooted in Tape-Beatles, Negativland or People Like Us, but Blunt Instrument also takes his inspiration from both industrial music and hip hop. As far as I can judge, Blunt Instrument isn't interested in conveying a political or sociological message. If anything, then the message could very well be that stealing sounds left and right for the benefit of making new music is a great thing. At times I was reminded of DJ T-1-11, a long-forgotten plunderphonic (...) but less dance-oriented. Blunt Instrument, implied by the name, is more about heavy guitar and industrial rhythm. Of course, a few snippets sound familiar, but I just don't seem to remember their title. Thanks, Blunt Instrument, for sticking that in my head! Lovely tape!

This is oddball coming from Portugal, by the hands of illustrator André Lemos. Surrealistic saturated collage of rhythms, vocal samples and random odd sounds that form a wide and sometimes playfull pallette through which Lemos crafts a sonic version of his uncanny illustrations. While listening to this I cannot refrain from thinking about Nurse With Wound as well as some French old school projects such as Brume or Negativland. More akin to musique concréte than to "noise", expect moments of highly unsettling intensity and frantic complexity.
