golden calves - Collection: Money Band + Century Band

Woodsist scroll back to the early, Jandek-influenced doings of Wooden Wand's James Toth, compiling his 'Money Band' and 'Century Band' sides from 1996 in a double LP package. It's all very raw and perhaps almost naïve, attempting to consolidate ideas from noise with krautrock and free jazz soaked up by his 18 year old self while working at a record shop and for the local college radio. Factor in a diet of The Godz, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Swell Maps and Tower Recordings with his subversive spirit, and you have these nascent emulations of his heroes; basic but ambitious song structures attempting to break the rules. James says "In hindsight, I like to think that the noise scene liked us and responded so positively to us because, in our own naïve way, we were subverting a very rigid paradigm, Touring with noise bands and moving in experimental circles but playing proper 'songs' is what made us weird. It was an exciting, unforgettable time. "These are not perfect records. Perhaps worse than so-called 'naïve art' is 'only-marginally-informed art' and that's what this is. I should have let my talents marinate for a while before rushing out records that now sound to me like thinly-veiled love letters to Siltbreeze. But fuck it, man. I was hopelessly arrogant then and remain so today. Why else would I greenlight this f*cking thing?"
