Reviews
Another collection this week from a brainwashed artist, this mid-priced NWW release collects various collaborative efforts from 1980 - 1999. Subtitled, "Favourite Moments of Mutual Ecstasy," this collection features collaborations with Diana Rogerson (Crystal Belle Schrodd), Tony Wakeford (Sol Invictus), Legendary Pink Dots, Foetus, Current 93, William Bennet, the Inflatable Sideshow, Aranos, Chris Wallis/Peat Bog and Tiny Tim. It's a 2 CD set of material, most of which can be found on previous NWW releases. High points include the Rogerson tracks which were originally omitted from the CD release of Crystal Belle Schrodd as well as the Tiny Tim track which was only available previously on an entire CD of Tiny Tim and his ukelele ditties. Unfortunately most of this has had to be edited. Stereolab's "Simple Headphone Mind" was a 30-minute two part single in its original form, here it's reduced to a measly 10 minute excerpt. Coil's "How to Destroy Angels II" and "The Dead Side of the Moon" with David Tibet have also been reduced to about 10 minutes. Thankfully it comes at a reduced price and provides for a great introduction to NWW for the beginner along with some of the best highlights from the last 20 years.
