Wounded Knee - House Music

(Krapp Tapes)

With cassettes and CDRs being churned out by below-radar experimentalists and available online and at gigs, Edinburgh’s premier progenitor of looped vocal rounds Drew Wright is joining in. Here, he serves up a bumper-sized C-60ish collection of some twenty-one no-fi trad concoctions that move between whimsy and melancholy in a full-throated landscape where Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, Ivor Cutler and Rolf Harris go hiking. Recorded at home in chez Wright for his new Sam Beckett referencing label (this is his first), both title and label-name serve up the best punning stunt since Knights of the Occasional Table released ‘Knees Up Mother Earth.’
