Rapeman - Budd 12 inch

$35.00 (AUD)


No one would ever expect restraint from a Steve Albini project, but even by his standards, Budd is one uncompromising release. Named after R. Budd Dwyer, the infamous Pennsylvania legislator who committed suicide live on camera, Budd strips out whatever melodic and rhythmic consistency Albini had expressed in his music and churns out unremitting, unstructured noise. The title track is an unrelenting cacophony of shrieks and howls, and the fact that it was recorded live (as was most of the EP), meaning that the band willfully subjected a paying audience to it, just adds to the perversity Rapeman gleefully wallows in here.
