REVIEW

FOXYDIGITALIS
If any experimental group deserves more accolades than they have received over the course of their career, it’s Smegma. A folk-noise-improv-collage collective who have been active since 1973, Smegma was integral in founding the Los Angeles Free Music Society. By all rights, Smegma deserve a place alongside Nihilist Spasm Band and Borbetomagus as being avant-garde noise originators. With this self-titled record on the perennially slick La Station Radar label, the group proves they’re still on top of their respective game and that their sound hasn’t aged one bit.
The record runs the gamut of Smegma’s various styles, from their mysteriously cinematic trains of musical thought (Side A, a live performance of the LAFMS Telethon Revisited event) to their familiar beat poetry-infused noise collages (Side B, “Unconventional Noise Droppings” and “Don’t-Do It’s”). Featuring appearances from LAFMS mainstays Dennis Duck, Frederik Nilsen, Ace Ferren Ford and Ju Suk Reete Meate with guest appearances by John Wiese and Liz Young, this record has all the hallmarks of classic Smegma—surrealism, abrasion, psyche damage dripping from bleeding aural orifices, and some totally unhinged vocal injections.
Ladies, gentlemen and noise dorks everywhere, this is Free Music at its finest. It’s a ritual fusing of any and all music and non-music at the level of the hum, the blap, the tink and the boom. By design, as well as chance, every Smegma performance and recording is an utterly unique concept. Smegma portrays the group’s discursive smattering of individualistic vision in a spacious light where life and art are permanently bound.
