Boomkat Product Review:
Another magnificent discovery from the annals of Manchester history reissued by Drag City. Pete Shelley, as you should know, was the indomitable lead singer of Buzzcocks and one of punk/post-punks most virulent catalysts. 'Sky Yen' is some of his very earliest work; two sides of freely improvised and alien synth oscillations performed in March 1974 and released in 1980 on his own Groovy Records imprint - home to his and his mate's most esoteric, experimental and noisy recordings. It's a trip in the most literal sense, blindly guided through primitive, dissonant squalls of electronic noise with a fearless intent. We're reminded of later recordings made by Maurizio Bianchi and even Pat Murano's recent Decimus trips, but it's worth bearing in mind that these were made in 1974, and the precedents for this kind of madness were few and far between. Recommended!
