Out of stock

Many years in the making, An Accident In Substance collects all of the 7-inch tracks and a huge number of compilation appearances of Key Ransone's legendary project Small Cruel Party. Like the pungent scent of a campfire or the complex flavor of a good, peaty single malt, Small Cruel Party's mix of environmental sounds, far-off voices, and Cartridge Music-like close manipulation of tiny sounds get into your sinuses, your hair, your jacket, melding into a location-specific surrealist vision that permeates the air around you. Fans of anything from Hum of the Druid to Yeast Culture to Id Battery to M. Behrens will find a lot to like here, and even old-school collectors of SCP work will likely find a few comp tracks here that they haven't heard before. The set comes in a DVD-sized triple-fold digipak with a slipcase. Liner notes by Patrick Barber (Blowhole, Apraxia label) and a listing of the sources of all the tracks, as well as some of Key's drawings.
