Justin Marc Lloyd – I’m Sorry for the Thoughts Assigned to My Name
Described as ‘Globular Vocal Mass’ on the handyWasted Capital site this neat looking tape from Justin Marc Lloyd caused me a bit of a foggy-brained confusion. I know, pretty much for certain, that Mr Lloyd is a born and bred American. From over the pond and all that. So why does this tape remind me so much of the late 1990s Essex-bwoy sound of Ceefax Acid Crew or Chaos A.D.?
It could be the sound quality which is busy and precise but ragged as dogtooth check. It could be the speedy, buzzing energy; manic as a teenage oik on Frosty Jacks. It could be the obnoxious clots of ‘globular vocal mass’; derived as easily from a rusty Commodore Amiga as a mucus-drenched throat.
“So much for the overall feel of the tape you hippy.” I hear you snort. “What about the edited highlights man?” OK…I know you’re busy people. Here’s the skinny version.
Side One contains the future-hit ‘Sub-dermal Thirst for Bland and Christian-like Suburbia’ and has a ‘wasp-in-a-crisp-packet’ buzz about it with some crunching ‘beats’ sounding like heavy mortar fire hitting the next village. RealApocalypse Nowshit. It ends with the superbly brief ‘Comfort of One’s Own Innocent Lover’ which appears to be some sticky-palmed sigh lasting for exactly 26 seconds.
Side Two starts with a see-sawing motion, and a Vocoder bleat like some ‘Rockit’ era outtake and segues into the sound lampposts make in a buffeting high wind (a kind of bruised and lonely temporal clicking) on ‘Perimeter Scan with Faulty the-world-is-shit Filter’ until a rise-of-the-robots synth alarm crushes other sounds beneath its primitive metallic chime. The final piece is an homage to the Wasted Capital/Hideous Replica brothers where objects, things and stuff gradually get folded round the sort of gloriously limp guitar loop last heard on a Kemialliset Ystavat record. Wow…that’s some ground covered; Chelmsford to Tampere via Chicago. Booyaka! (Editor’s note: yes, Joe did really write ‘Booyaka’ – I shall deflate his bouncy castle immediately as penance.)
A series of short reviews and write-ups about new and old tapes, because we’re not Pitchfork and ten paragraph reviews about lo-fi synth jams are kind of missing the point…
Justin Marc Lloyd - Year of the Water Dragon Vol 2 & 3 (Rainbow Bridge)
This is an old one from November 2012. I picked it out in particular because, apart from being a double tape, it came with a zine of collages by Lloyd, in what can be described as the ‘house style’ at Rainbow Bridge - stark black imagery against multi-coloured and glittery paper. It’s a nice thing to pull out and have a look through once in a while.
The tapes themselves see JML in characteristically eccentric noise mode, with a range of textures and moods that make him stand alone away from the increasingly stale ‘harsh noise’ scene: the distortion crumbles and cracks, rising in swells, before dying back to make way for other elements. At one point on the first tape it could be new age pan pipes; the second tape has a particularly jaunty, bouncy section which made me grin like a loony. It groans and creeks, and sometimes hums and sings, and is always changing. Fascinating and addictive, as we’ve come to expect from JML. Long out of print, but a digital version is still available from the Rainbow Bridge Bandcamp.
