Cotton Ferox et al: Mother Russia
While Cotton Ferox were on tour in Russia in 2007, they got together with local experimentalists Bardoseneticcube, Kryptogen Rundfunk and 1g0g in St Petersburg. On a whim they decided to record an improvised jam session, as they felt an immediate musical kinship. The result, two long tracks, is a dark and brooding journey into the psyche of these Swedish and Russian minds. The sounds and structures suck you in and then won’t let go. It’s decidedly a netherworld trip – sometimes scary and sometimes gleefully curious.
