Thighpaulsandra - The Lepore Extrusion
Experimental Thighpaulsandra is enjoying a very successful solo career after he rose to fame working with such establishedacts such as Coil and Spiritualized, to name but a few.

"The Lepore Extrusion" is a one track "single" - clocking in at forty five minutes. Entirely a concept release this is the score to a video compilation entitled "Is Evolution Evil?" which features Amanda Lepore.(apparently the number one transsexual in the world). Now if transsexuallity offends you, you may want to stop reading this review now. It isn't for everyone at all.

Anyway, this should hopefully be some nice droning, dark, Experimental Electronic in the vein of Coil's early stuff. It begins slowly, very slowly, and for quite some time reads like a Dark Ambient track. Eerie Visuals, and there's very little here that reminds me of alternative lifestyles in anyway what so ever.

The track carries on in the hypnotic and intrusive manner that made Jhonn Balance and Sleazy such iconic legends, I would advise this to be played at a loud volume. What I like about this album is that it loses its sanity and its reason about halfway through, and becomes a decaying and psychedelic drone number. The frequencies get higher towards the end, and there's a very, very trance-like seduction (and I guess this is where the theme interplays).

Kudos also goes to the packaging, this is letter pressed by Interrobang (who has pressed cover for such acts as Isis and Sonic Youth). Like all good releases are these days, this one is also limited to 500 copies. Also, it was recorded at "Golliwog Farm", which I couldn't help but giggle at. Quite like a schoolboy seeing his first pair of boobies on TV.

Pretty good, but it won't appeal to everyone. The transsexual concept and video may offend or dissuade some people, and the music is at times too drony and too simplistic. Now don't get me wrong, this is a good "single", and it will be loved by almost everyone who enjoys Coil and the similar wave of bands.

My final verdict is above average. The underwater sounds at the thirty two minute mark are the highlight.
