Robert Ridley-Shackleton "Splat is Back/Demi-God & Sex U Up" cassettes

RRS is a strange duck. Strange in the way that I always sort of wonder what he might be doing on any given day and I imagine it's similar to an early scene from the Fisher King. This music is crazy. Good crazy but crazy none the less. The sounds range from lo fi noise pop to noisy loops of static and vocals to straight up free noise. The looks of these tapes are equally crazy: a spastic smear of ink or paint with elements of collage and photography. It's a really bizarre and very fun trip into the mind of a unique individual. I wonder what he is up to right now.
