The PMM-kru are up to no good once more, this time putting the postal services to work on our behalves, with a heavy duty package of cassettes, tees, zines and prints and things which have landed here in Bristol / UK from Russia / St. Petersburg, after travelling thru the new year switch, brexit, etc etc -

This here is one of the fine things from this package - the rest will be up on the site very soon.

It's all been well worth the wait though.
'local heroes' Electro-Haram are back, with the 'Not Yet Forbidden Electro-Harem Dances Live 2020'!

Almost one hour of sound-world-surfing through and care-taking of past musical transmissions from various subways and overgrounds of sound around this globe, with a middle east theme somewhere in the haze of it all -
Side A sounds like it was transmitted live from a library or some kind of reverberant hall (we think?!?) - not sure if that venue exists - name seems unlikely, unless it's a google translate job?

Either way - the sound is great, the library sound sources transform into reverberating cacophonies and ghostly rhythms that sound like they are being dragged through tape machines or reel to reels, or played off dusty shellacs via a jumble of effects pedals. The backdrop against the subtle backdrop of human breath and quiet chatter, and huge reverberation of the space the recording was made in, gives everything a deep, drowsy and transportive feel, and make perfect sense dubbed onto tape for re-distribution, DIY Style.

This one goes deep, and takes you on a slightly psychotic, slightly paranoid, yet ultimately kinda warm and woozy ride through a carnival of musical souls, with the ghosts of bollywood and north africa / middle east transmitted somewhere across the underground waves of night time Russia perhaps -

Wicked stuff - if you want to enter a world of curious sounds and warped, re-imagined songs for the drifting mind - make sure you check this one.

Edition of 30 library tapes with riso printed card.
