PHBTK - Verfall / Melachoir

This is Phillip B. Klingler (aka PBK) and Jeph Jerman (aka Hands To). So what they did was ... ah, you're ahead of me. Anyway. These were initially seperate tape releases on Sound Of Pig (a seminal tape label ran by Al Margolis aka If, Bwana) and Jeph's Big Body Parts (stop sniggering at the back) in 1989. 20 years later, Phillip put them up on a netlabel that passed me by.

These are lossless rips of the re-reissue from 2011. It was only in the final stages of preparing this post that I realised that Phillip has these on his bandcamp ... I consider these tapes so extraordinary that I'm going to compromise our T&Cs, hope for forgiveness and encourage you all to dive into the wealth of art on the PBK page.

whoa ... i had never made the leap to Andrei Tarkovsky ... Stalker works perfectly ... even Solaris but in a more twisted way ... i need to read that book

i agree,
stalker is way much "greater"
than solaris, even if the latter
is good too
