Ignatz – Selected Songs from Cassettes 2005-2009 (2011)
Ignatz is a belgian auteur who composes tripped-out psyche on various bric-a-brac which hinges on drone, lurks around the ghost of harmony not unlike a merry-go-round on which the crazed gypsies barking instructions are sun city girls and henry flynt. ‘Selected songs…’ compiles some choice slices from his stockpile of diy cassettes. It’s a riveting listen through out, and shows ignatz in all his different guises: from the crying sailor drowning in psychedelic mud to the melody addicted outsider baladeer choking on home brewn hard liquor. if jandek was in white light / white era vu in other words.
