£14.99 + shipping (£4 UK, £6 Europe, £9 US/Canada, £12 rest of the world)
Joint release with Club Papers records. Mel O’Dubshlaine is a Leeds-based synthetic noise merchant (formerly performing under the Ocelocelot moniker). An obtuse musical fantasist, M O’D is a purveyor of heavy space-chord amalgamations, drum pad improv and, most recently, the human voice synthesized into abstraction and stripped of communicative utilitarianism. Always great live, this supporting pillar of the Ashtray Navigations empire stands independent, peaceful like a heron, as the brown river unremittingly carries pillagers’ debris downstream to some godforsaken industrial necropolis, long ago taken hostage by Japanese knotweed.
