Boomkat Product Review:
Do crappy jobs breed good art? I mean only too often we end up with books, films and music as a reaction to lifes mundane jobs, Bukowski made a career out of documenting his ailing life, Clerks made a genre out of it so there must be something in it. Even the NME have claimed (in reference the Arctic Monkeys I think) that they champion music for kids in dead end jobs in dead end towns. I remember having just that kind of job, the same ritual day in day out and going home in the evening was the only respite from 8 hours of quite mind numbing boredom. Stefan Neville’s ‘Do Not Destroy’ is based entirely around this ritual, and the album was compiled from daily recordings he made on his immediate return from a full time filing job. Taking the structures of pop folk, Neville deconstructs the tracks and everything is piped onto 2 track tape, giving the record a lo-fidelity warmth and honesty comparable to the early recordings of outsider-bluesman Jandek. Neville’s deep and distorted droning however might best be compared to early Earth if they had a heap of broken equipment to work with. An unashamedly odd album and another interesting step for the Last Visible Dog label.
