DAVID JACKMAN – Edge Of Nothing

(Die Stadt)

Like it or not, Jackman’s uncompromising stance is one of the most admirable today and it clearly reflects in his music, which keeps being released in a plurality of formats. In this 10 inch we’re gifted with the reissue of a 1983 track – here presented in two versions – originally released in the “Elephant table album” compilation. “Edge of nothing” is classic Jackman, a cauldron of tuned metals, scorching feedback, deranged resonances and an absolutely free approach. Each piece by the Organum deus ex machina, even in short time spans, is a shocking delivery of sonic surcharge which, at high volume, speaks with more eloquence than anything else. These recordings literally sneer at us, raising a cloud of smoke behind which long moments of violent beauty can be repeatedly tasted. We surely need more than only 12 minutes, anyway!
