Boomkat Product Review:
Moon Wiring Club returns for his perennial dosing of Urchronic phantasia with ‘Psychedelic Spirit Show’, delivered hot and plasmic from the Blank Workshop in Clinksell. Something like DJ Screw getting his mitts on Boards of Canada - spooked out with new fangled “temporal mixing” for an extra musty smudge that only enhances the feeling that we’re entering a Sapphire & Steel-like world of arcane conundrum, with lots of sonic lens flare and melting celluloid textures.
The spirits are high but squashed as MWC enters its prime 11th year of quantum hi-jinx on ‘Psychedelic Spirit Show’. In two smudged parts extruded from cosmic soup, MWC relays something like a surreptitious recording of a clandestine Victorian steam-punks who’ve just discovered a form of Moggadon from licking specially bred tabby cats.
Of course, the track titles are all perfectly suggestive and riddled with inference, leading us up the garden path and down the rabbithole from the withered loops and voices of ’Summon The Contestants’ to the slurred slant off in ‘Rabbit Foot Dimension’. Together with the music and the artwork, it’s all more than enough to suspend the listener/test subject’s disbelief for the duration, and to indulge our regression to the fullest - whether that’s to the 19th century, or the 1990’s, is up to thee.
