The Wire Review: Headlock

Growling, oscillating and convoluting its way through electric guitar, samplers, loops and tape samples, Headlock, originally released in 1989, takes traces of rock feedback, cut-up Improv and snatches of environmental recording, and then heatwelds them with digital precision of avant Electronica. Dimuzio bears comparison with DJ Spooky in his grasp of sonic futurism, but where Spooky's work thrives on dub - the delays and recalls of paranoid consciousness - this is clean edged and fleeting, a music of high speed planes, trains and generators. If King Crimson had studied under Edgard Varese. —Matt ffytche
