Gravamina For Uxoricide

by Alto Stratus

Uxoricide 30:11
Dibbuk 30:08


DARK STAR: Leicester based label who've got a host of releases mainly from Vrije and Zircon and the Burning Brains. I'm reliably informed that the music is very wide ranging - anywhere from industrial to cosmic. Latest release from Vrije is entitled, somewhat romantically I feel, 'Gravamina For Uxoricide'. This is firmly in the noise generator stable and didn't really move me too much. By contrast Zircon's 'Anam' tape is infinitely more palatable. Still pretty extreme, but the wealth of sound created, although at times a bit plodding, showed a lot of promise.
[Dave Henderson's "Wild Planet" update in Sounds, November 1983]


released August 12, 2014

Composed, produced and engineered by Vrije (A&S Freeman, aka Alto Stratus).
Recorded at Nekrosis Studio, Leicester (11 September 1983).
