Boomkat Product Review:
**Double disc in six-panel slipcase** 'A Sucked Orange' rescues offcuts from Steven Stapleton's NWW studio dating between 1979 and 1988 - when he binned most of his old tapes prior to moving to Ireland. Thankfully, at the behest of a friend, he kept some parts which were later used for 1990's 'Scrag' cassette - included here on CD for the 1st time - and now appear here as 29 brief elements or alternate versions. Some of the titles literally refer to the track, a la 'Pleasant Banjo Intro With Irritating Squeak' while others 'Scrambled Egg Rebellion In The Smegma Department' leave it to the imagination, which is where this music really gets to run free, flipping from drone loop experiments to the mystic sino fragments of 'Sinan Sings For Her Chums', honky tonk piano, sublime synth vignettes 'Crack Up', Finnish (?) folk song 'Ritva Sings For The World' and delirious psychedelia 'SBB Dragged Through A Hedge Backwards'.
