The Dead C - Scarey Nest
Runway (Precious Metal – PM1)
Shoot, I really love this recording. Stunning early recording of their most popular (?) track.
"…fans will recognize a catatonic run through the classic "Scarey Nest" (later polished up, relatively speaking, for the Eusa Kills LP) that sounds as if it was recorded directly onto pure opium instead of magnetic tape. Later on, some distracted strums nod toward song-ish forms, but they’re not putting a lot of effort into it. There’s even (gasp!) a drum machine on a few tracks. Those looking for the pre-history of a band that changed music in New Zealand forever and had a lasting impact on out-rock/noise around the world will find lots of oil here in which to deep-fry what’s left of their brains.”
