Winning Sperm Party + Other recordings…

The Sperm party boys have recently put up a recording of the show performed in Glasgow last month! It’s a fine recording of a great show! Apart from the landlord generally cutting the set short complaining of the volume ☺
Still an amazing show and a haunting noise made by all the players! Big thanks to everyone that played including Rob, Chris for the show and Andy for some amazingly sweaty drumming!!!

NEWS, REVIEWS, SHOWS AND FATCAT FREE DOWNLOAD…

FATCAT

Holy Shite, the prestigious record label, FATCAT have decided to add a track of mine to their demo archieve. Which means you can now go to their website and listen to “UP YOURS” from the album and if you like it that much it can be downloaded for free!!!! More news soon…..Heres a link:

http://fat-cat.co.uk/fatcat/index.php

And here is what fatcat had to say on the track:

“…a palate-scorching blast of screaming guitars by Peter James Taylor, formerly of no-wave influenced Bletchley punks Action Beat. This track, Up Yours, announces its intentions straight away with a wave of tremelo-picked guitars (with Shellac-style metallic distortion), and doesn’t let up from there – the Sonic-Youth-at-their-most-hectic drums ensure that all of the instrumental song’s 7+ minutes pound their way into your psyche. The track is arranged and played on 6 guitars, and it shows and pays off in its sheer wonderful violence.”

REVIEWS

So over the last month I gathered up a few of the reviews from around the net and here they are below for personal consumption. If you love it then you can even buy the 12”…

“Peter J Taylor’s name might make him sound like he’s a columnist for a broadsheet paper but listen to a split second of his music and you’ll realise that he is in fact a monstrous nutter who’s created an instrumental album of intense, punky guitar driven compositions that sound like they’re the backing track to a b-movie car chase. He used to be in some band I’ve never heard of, but who cares about that, care about this.

This record is partly white noise and it should really be awful. But it’s not. It’s good. Great in fact. I put it on and listened to the whole thing straight through. Sober. It doesn’t let up or let you go in it’s manic and tense nature. It’s like a refreshing citrus slap round the face that barks “Stop listening to Mark Lanegan you twat. What are you doing with your life? Don’t you remember what you used to like?” (Just me then?) It makes me remember how much raucous fun music can be. Should be. Taylor sounds like he’s having so much fun. I want to pick up a guitar join in.

There’s also some great little intricacies to be found inbetween the wailing eight tracks here but I don’t think for a minute any of it was done consciously. ‘Mate’ is like a Kandinsky painting: insane, nonsensical, alluring; hinting at control and overall it’s odd parts making a beautiful whole. It’s also a big bastard sonic onslaught of electric death too, of course.

The self released album ‘Mate’ is available for a mere £4 on his bandcamp site but if you’re a tight-fisted, miser, skinflint, cheapskate tight wad, then you can just stream the thing and rock out in front of your computer like it’s 2011. But remember: Your ears are for life, not just for Christmas. Now go listen.”

http://musicgob.tumblr.com/  Feb 2011.

“Ex Action Beat member Peter J Taylor offers a lovely slice of frenetic guitars and discordant amp damage with this. Each track is unrelenting in its intent and truly drives the point home. Indeed at points it is as though Lightning Bolt got rid of their bass and replaced it with a guitar.With this in mind this formula is touched on time and time again and can be a little samey but the evident talent on display and desire to just straight up rock out often dispels any worries that this mans heart is not firmly in the right place. “Red Schuhert,” is the pot of gold at the end of a bright and endearing record that seems to have a huge sigh at the end of it after the amount of work that has gone into the previous 7 tracks. The noise band from Bletchleys loss is our gain.”
