BOMIS PRENDIN-CLEAR MEMORY, TAPE, 1984, USA MP3/Flac
Documenting the moment in which these under-sung sages of post-Residential art rock mutation peel back the exaggerated displays of febrile freakishness heard on their two earlier 9" flexi discs (their reason for inclusion on the hallowed Nurse With Wound list), Clear Memory reveals a wonderland of sense-expanding psychedelic potentiality lurking below the surface. The first salvo here is a revealing one, exhibiting a dewily dappled and eerily serene side to their work that feels informed by Harmonia's Deluxe or Cluster's Sowisoso before launching into an utterly distinct species of home-brewed, blearily dazed and rhythm-boxed basement acid rock, variations of which they've been articulating from this moment forward to the present day one, as these long-in-the-tooth outsiders are still flying their freak flags all these years later. This and the following cassette "Confidential" were issued in minuscule numbers to those in their immediate circle and promptly disappeared down the memory hole. Now marks the perfect time for a corrective to that and the ability to bring these strange, glazed and deliriously swarming compositions to many new ears. This has however been graced with a new cover, as the semi-private original tape edition featured unauthorized use of a friends artwork. Those too curious to stop themselves from looking might find the original lurking somewhere within the confines of their own site here, though. You can find a wealth of other Bomis audio goodies over at their Free Music Archive page Here as well as via the split CDR with Eric Lunde that I shared with my last round of posts. Further info can be found on my post about them on Ad Hoc.
