GNOD / Zohastre split 7"


Regular price
This gem from our friends at ZamZam Recs in the depths of la france - now back in stock once more for those who still want a piece!

Gnarsty moves from the big, bad GNOD out of Salford, sharing a '45 with tribal-trip duo Zohastre aka Olmo and Héloïse - the force behind the excellent ZamZam Records imprint out of France (and once stationed in Bristol, a few moons ago).

This one arrived in the post here together with that killer Solar Skeletons tape (check it!!) ** edit - the re-up arrived together with the killer Kabukichō LP by Surprise Barbue - go check itt!) -

These were sent straight from ZamZam HQ in France (don't get it confused with ZamZam Sounds out of Portland btw).

GNOD, the fluid & flexible noise-rock / doom / soundsystem collective that has caused many a stir in live settings across the world with their improvised, ever-changing shape, are up top on this disc with a real earthquake of bass, fizzing destruction of high frequency, and mangled drums. This one is a murderous slice of terror-dub already, well worth sending the post(wo)man your way with, we think!
This one should satisfy all fans of The Bug, Deafkids, G36, Emptyset, Kinlaw & Franco Franco, who knows, maybe even Ossia... Oh, and fans of GNOD might like this one too?!

Flip the disc, and you'll find the whirlwind combination of drums & electronics by Zohastre -
conjuring up harrowing medieval spirits & tripped out bag-pipe merriment with otherwordly frequency oscillation and undulating waves of drum & guttural sub bass.
It sounds like you've crept up on a long-lost village in the valleys, peering over from behind the trees at night, staring at a huge flaming fire with the villagers dancing in circles, everyone possessed by the devil, and loving it.

Killer off-kilter release, this.
Straight from the underground! No messing about.

Screenprinted edition of 300.
