Andrew Liles & Jean-Hervé Peron
Fini!

[Dirter, www.dirter.co.uk]

In a very nonsensical way, "The Drummer is on Valium" is screamed throughout the opening track of this collaborative record. "Shake him" screams Jean-Hervé Peron in despair. You know he wants to help the poor sob that fell asleep on the stool, in front of his percussion set. In a not so subtle fashion, Andrew Liles [Nurse With Wound] cuts up the music to fit the duo's agenda. Scorching guitars mingle with a never-ending coarse beat, which is encased by pure chaos. Coming closely on the heels of "Disconnected" [last year's Peron's collaboration with Nurse With Wound], "Fini!" is a much different animal altogether. Instead of spacing out collective ideas across an expanse of time, they play it close to the edge, while fusing in as many disparate ideas as is humanly possible within a tight proximity. "We Are Ready Here" considers the idea through heavily concocted organ-guitar fuzz which is simply scorching. "It's Too Loud" goes a step further to build up to a hypnotic drone, complete with Peron's rumblings. Disappointment for me was a cluster of brief pieces that were under-developed in their schemes. When listening to a piece like the acoustic "Cuculiformes" or the relaxing folk-feel of "Nosferatu", one gets a sense that key elements were lost during the editing stage. In a fine Dadaist fashion, we're told Andrew Liles is credited with wah wah & blah blah blah, Peron is responsible for ha ha & la la la, while Ragna Skinner did the cha cha cha. If only we could get a second, unfiltered disc attached that documents the gist of the creative process, we would all be better for it.
