Boomkat Product Review:
Now reissued on Mike Patton's Ipecac imprint. "The sounds of disaster" documents the past few years of End's life. A time of shootings, home invasions, and near fatal accidents. Outrageous, epic, nihilistic, and absurd, the sounds of disaster is the soundtrack to a world of b-movie fantasies where hydrogen bombs, hippie death cults, subway-dwelling zombies, cannibal midgets, and legions of homicidal madmen all run rampant. While End's first release science/fiction was filled with spooky space themes, this recording is on a totally different planet. There are recognizable moments - surf rock guitars, crazed breakbeats, cop show riffs, theremins and moogs, screaming choirs, horn sections, spy music, japanese noise, scat vocals.... but they've all been forced together into a frenzied mass as catchy as it is schizophrenic. Ace.
