Super special bank holiday treat!!! Sharp Noodle get's all international up in this bitch with the first release from Canada's nofi internet legend General Martok. Imagine if Lou Barlow & Eric Gaffney were involved in an unfortunate teleportation accident whilst working on a Sebadoh album in 1993 and, before having their hideous mutant face shotgunned up by Gina Davis, managed to record 30 awesome tracks of electro-acoustic mongpop.
In the mood is the ghost of a Fostex fourtrack rising up like sweat from the passionate love making of the young Yma Sumac and Jandek in a dense jungle of vowel-centric incantations. Or it sounds a bit like pavement, the fall, or the inbreds.

Because no one demanded it - a distinctly unmetal solo album by Snork Maiden's Linus Fitness-Centre (not to be confused with the one in Atomck). Ten tracks of under-written, overly compressed electrotosh, blending nice old synths with stupid video game noises, while Mr Fitness whines about some nerdy crap. Recorded during the winter of 2010-11, this album would have been longer but for the obligatory Sharp Noodle computer malfunction rendering it mercifully brief.
