Hex Vex And The Lavender Mink (2 x 10")
Edition of 400 copies.
Hex Vex And The Lavender Mink compiles the group's musical obsessions at the turn of the century, droll Brit drone, the magnificent Arthur Doyle, extremely dangerous onstage pyrotechnics, the fabulous Raymond Scott, cheesy electro dub effects and, most of all, competitive and confusing American free improvisation. David Cross and Tim Poland with their friends Arthur Doyle, Nuuj (of Hilkka and Sheet), Neil Campbell (of Vibracathedral Ochestra), Phil Marshall (of Colorblind James Experience), John Schoen (of Pengo), Adam Wilcox, Lawrence Feldman, Mark Martin, John Olsen (of Wolf Eyes), Th. Metzger, Sticky Foster (of A Band), Joe Sorriero (of NOD), Coffin Kim, Gregg Boltz (of Left4Dead), Ed Wilcox (of Temple Of Bon Matin), Richard Scott compete with drums, bass, guitar, electronics, saxes, Clavinova, Crummar organ, violin, wood horn, electronic sounds & clips, repeater, Casio, electric birds, an old drum machine, subliminal voice track and hiss, confusing them into various formations and musical styles.
With homages to Arthur Doyle by doing a Conspiracy Nation with him and one without him, and to Raymond Scott with two exquisite covers of 'Naked City' and 'Coming Down To Earth'. A double 10 LP record set with color gatefold cover with notes and text about the band and photographs of their dangerously pyrotechnic shows, released in an edition of 400 copies.
