Applehead- Crepaxian Interligne Mixtape (Pre-Cert, 2011)
"*Limited to 90 copies only, packaged in a amazing looking clamshell/cartridge style pack* Following the unresolved 'Applehead De Applehead' LP, Tony DeVal expands the semi-fictitious Applehead mythology on Andy Votel and Demdike Stare's first label cassette. Mixed at Villa Scott using only original European vinyl pressings, the 'Crepaxian Interligne' mixtape nods to the psychedelic eroticism of Guido Crepax's comics and the soundtracks of '80s Spanish and Italian horror films in typically enigmatic and inexplicable fashion. We couldn't tell you the names of any tracks, even if we wanted to (you wouldn't want Applehead on your case either, would you?), but these are the sort of cryptic sounds which conjure images of vulpine murderesses, sharp-suited sleuths, overacting obese gang bosses and the sort of more explicit blueness that would have the Daily Mail belling the BBFC. These are sounds you've probably never heard before, but they'll take you right back to 1984, alone in your bedroom watching badly dubbed and outrageous foreign "muck". Right up our alley, then! Limited copies only - no blinking." (Boomkat)
Tremendous ups to Captain Groovy for dropping this coveted cassette in the comments section of thee Applehead de Applehead post a few weeks back. I'd imagine this is his rip.....If you're feeling the adolescent vhs dragon fantasy déjà vu vibe up in this piece, methinks you should make an effort to drop in and show the captain some love over at therealnittygritty.blogspot.com. Thanks also to Jonny for the pics. And, well, to Pre-Cert of course for their excellent esoteric micro-releases. This here's a cooperative effort. Jah bless.
