Sissy Spacek – Wreck


John Wiese’s noise outfit, Sissy Spacek, always keeps its listeners on their toes. While honing both The Haters worship (Devils Cone And Palm or even releases like Scissors) and noisecore/grindcore (the Agathocles split, Gore Jet, Gutter Splint, Dash, the Freaked With Jet compilation) sounds, the band never likes to remain to predictable and the range of ground covered separates them from the majority of their peers in the world of harsh noise. Wreck presents another facet. The CD, released on Phage Tapes, presents six tracks culled from two live performances with two variations on essentially the same lineup – Wiese/Corydon Ronnau/Charlie Mumma/Phil Blankenship on tracks 1, 3, 4, and 6 while tracks 2 and 5 lack Blankenship. The tracks without Blankenship come across as denser versions early power electronics acts like Libertarian Recordings and Con-Dom channeled through harsh noise, while the tracks with Blankenship come across more directly as harsh noise. All tracks contain the sense of mania contained in the band’s more noisecore/grindcore tracks, creating deeply claustrophobic spaces. All-in-all, another strong effort from the group. Stay tuned for new releases featuring Sara Taylor of Youth Code doing vocals in the not too distant future.
