Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura - Untitled (2012)



Sun-scorched basement free-rock from Manchester. Sounds like some kinda musico-meteorological anomaly. Yeah right. What it is is a celebratory aesthetic developed by a collection of the northwest's most tightly-knit noiseniks, coming from all corners of the scene and including members of Serfs, Electrelane, Beach Fuzz, Stuckometer and others, dependent on the jam. Named Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura (an illiterate Spanish translation of Motherless Soldiers Of Fortune) by bass player Joincey, this supergroup of sorts gets together on alternate Sundays at Manchester's Sunshine Studios, plugs in and proceeds to scrape the skies until the tape reels are full and the energy levels are spent. Formed in part as a result of guitar player Nick Mitchell's experiences of seeing Albany, NY band Burnt Hills rip it up at their legendary Heldeberg House jams, DSDV (for short) invokes the same stoned demons, blazing a trail that runs parallel to those laid down by the likes of Sunburned Hand of the Man, Les Rallizes Denudes, Vermonster and Flower-Corsano Duo. There is a logic to this music and, within it, the possibility for pattern-recognition, yet, above it all, there is a sprawling cloud of multitextural, cacophonous, brawling guitar solos that threatens to completely overpower the clattering, occasionally motorik, rhythmic chaos. This is the first vinyl release in a series of brutal, yet intensely uplifting, jams laid down to tape. In other words, it's just the beginning. (piccadillyrecords)
