NOW WE’RE WELDIN’. Dixon Avenue Basements Jams launches it’s sub-label Neutralizer, a new outlet for the dirtier end of their tastes, with four honkin’ jam rolls from Belfast’s own Carlton Doom, purported to be the adult alias of a feral child featured in the infamous 2002 documentary, “Wild Child”. Despite many attempts (at an apparent two million pound cost) by the state to “civilise” him, Monsieur Doom has never really shaken off the untamed environments that shaped the absolute weirdo he is today: a steady diet of house bricks, diesel and boursin cheese translates into a primitive and powerful approach to modern machine music, at once referencing the dirty frolic of classic Hague / Glasgow manoeuvres, upcycling all that old shite to reflect a far more harrowing take on the desolate, post-sensible future we’re wishing into existence. BenzodiAcid and the rhythm of hard industry, stitched together with a dod of good ‘eld fashioned mechanical funk and strong will to fuck it all off. Perfect for listening to whilst chowing down on a city pigeon kebab on the dried-up banks of the River Lagan, but actually even more suitably placed through the undulating cones of an oppressively loud sound system in the basement of a telesales unit. Thoroughly optimistic vistas all round.
But we’re not here to sugar coat it for ye - Neutralize your own stinking life xx
