Named after River Lagan in Belfast, here comes a new sonic oddity from Israel, this time by Lietterschpich members David OPP (also; Barbara and Cadaver Eyes) and Lil' Oof (also; Panda Porn).
The Lagan Tapes is the aftermath of a Lietterschpich gig at the Sonorities Festival held in Belfast in 2005. The day after, while killing time before the flight back to Israel, David and Lil' Wolf found themselves walking across The River Lagan whereas David was thumping on fences and banging on random garbage cans with his bare hands, while Lil' Wolf was documenting the rawkus with her broken Sony TCM-323 Cassette-Corder that gave this recording its' essential lo-fi quality.
The result sounds like a regressed Gamelan workshop that evolved into an occult of modern primitives, providing tribal rhythms & haunting sounds reminiscent of MCMS, Crash Worship, Pain Teens, early 80's Sonic Youth, 23 Skidoo, Gamelan Son of A Lion and the Ince Ore & Lemon Bear Orchestra.
