about

Recorded in 1998 just prior to Simon's (as it turned out, temporary) relocation to Australia. In contrast to the song-oriented action of Pulse Of The Rooster, Metallic Sonatas is 15 short slices of searing, electronic-sounding mayhem. Performed on Electric Sitar, Voice, Glass Harmonica, Drum Machine, Electric Cifteli, Electric Banjolin, Violin, Cello, Cardboard Boxes, Casio, Electric Shirt-Reinforcer, Electric Bass, Guitar, Bowed Cymbals, Electric Thai Harp, Clockchimes, Reed Organ, and Bagpipes, the sounds have been mutated into towering alien sculptures evoking the "texture" of metals. Each piece is short and novel-sounding enough not to slip into dreary repetition and like most of R!!!&S!!!’s releases, somehow makes the most unusual music accessible. Out of print for many, many years.
