Release Info: MINOY-PRETTY YOUNG NEGRO MAN, TAPE, 1986, USA
A once prolific operator on the 80's U.S. underground cassette network, the work of Minoy has some very distinct and personal resonance for me, as this tape was one of my first windows into the universe of Very Strange Sub-Underground Electronic Music (discovered via the tape review section of Option Magazine), coming on the heels of early teen years much more steeped in the realms of weird New Wave and R.I.O./Beefheart. Pretty Young Negro Man and the Flipside ("Outback") ooze out of your speakers in a queasily pitching soup of distended loop detournement reminiscent of the early era of Severed Heads slowly lurching towards entropy inside a stochastic cloud of John Duncan-like shortwave manipulation.
