If I put anyone in the mood for some hard to digest weird noisy experimental stuff, look no further than San Francisco’s own Factrix.
Last year or so I went to the local underground theatre here and watched an hours worth of live stuff, which was great. That wasn’t the first I’d heard of Factrix, but it was the first I’d actually heard them. I downloaded this soon after, since I haven’t seen their record around. They started in 1978, but this LP came out a year after the first Whitehouse LP. There are similarities, but Factrix reminds me more of the track Steve Fitch recorded with the Butthole Surfers a half decade later and some of the Residents less structured music. I’m no expert at this kinda stuff, but I like putting it on every now and then.
