Gasp - Drome Triler of Puzzle Zoo People (1998)

Mind-melting, experimental, psychedelic grind/powerviolence. Explosions of blast beats, breakdowns, and pissed-off sludge interspersed with thick, echoing soundscapes. I remember in high school hearing Gasp on the Reality #2 comp, then going to buy this LP only to have my friend tell me that it sucked and not to bother. What a jerk. If I had gotten stoned and listened to this when I was 17, my head probably would have exploded.

1. Can't Seem a Mongrel Bly
2. Silk Orbita
3. Eyes the Tentacle and Arachnid Knew
4. Remembered 29 Times
5. Floors Building Legs
6. Little Jupiter Come Home to a Great Man

  1. love this blog so much. i never comment, but wanted to give you props for posting what i've always considered to be the most slept-on album from this entire era/scene. i bought a used copy in 2000 because of the cover art alone and it opened up my mind to an entirely new avenue of heavy music. this was seriously a game-changer for me and i swear it gets better every time i listen to it. GASP for life.

  2. the description sounds fuckin great - cheers!

  3. Gasp is excellent.
