Collin Strange - Private Room - 12" - LIES032.5
Collin Strange has a long and storied history in the New York City underground music scene of the nineties. From owning a record shop in the East Village, to working at distributers, to playing in bands of all sorts, to producing music alone, Strange was around at one of the most vibrant (and transitional) times in the L.E.S., just on the cusp of Guliani's culture crackdown which choked the life out of the city, forcing many to leave. Currently located in Seattle, Strange has picked up where he left off years ago plugging in the gear and churning out blistering acid cuts with a very D.I.Y. edge that brings to mind Drop Bass Network, Unit Moebius, or free party French acid of old. Coming full circle these tracks are completely at home on L.I.E.S. and will undoubtedly thrash any soundsystem in sight. Play at maximum volume for total disruption.
