Boomkat Product Review:
**Awesome collaboration, 20 years in the making, between venerable sound artist John Duncan and the legendary Jim O'Rourke, with help from Oren Ambarchi and Joe Talia. Sounds like Reines D'Angleterre meets Mika Vainio, or something. Edition of 500 housed in Hokusai artwork** John Duncan: "YEAH: Jim and I worked fast and furiously in Christoph Heemann's studio to record this, working in shifts, day and night, three days later had it all but finished -- then Jim said 'Let me do just a couple of tweaks, here and there' and I agreed. Twenty years later, we got together again to add those tweaks. I must say, I think it was worth the wait. STAY ALIVE: Jim, Joe and Oren invited me to perform with them on my last night in Tokyo -- a serious honor -- until we were to start I had no idea what to do. Then it came: turn a message I'd been repeating to myself, a reminder, into a sort of chant. That turned into a desperate mantra, then a scream, that left me feeling possessed, draining my voice down to a whisper. Leaving the audience stunned."
