Ju Suk Reet Meate; Solo, 1975-1980Alga Marghen
TES 153 LP
Long Playing Record
Edition of 188 copies only. Sidestepping all normal expectations on this album, Ju Suk Reet Meate (founding member of Smegma) directly goes about casting musical spells, utilizing primitive "inner mind" techniques on hammered dulcimer, tape loops, thrift store records, a homemade synthesizer, electric guitar, saxophone, mouth sounds, and manipulated christian radio broadcasts. Recorded in Portland, Oregon, these previously unreleased recordings reflect a similar "inner-mind over limited technique matter" aesthetic as the acclaimed but seldom heard classic Solo 1978-1979, originally released on Pigface Records in 1980.
Ju Suk Reet Meate (pronounced as “You secrete meat”) solo outings were described strikingly as “a post Zappa, stoned blues / concrete melange of guitar, tapes, found sounds and voice”.
