White Dog is an extreme murk-drone machine helmed by Chris Jacques, one of the operators of the Prairie Fire Tapes imprint. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, which he refers to as “one of the grimmest places in North America,” Jacques creates decayed, mildew-covered drones that submerge themselves in the subconscious, exposing raw fear and other nasty emotions.
This cassette is a blown-out feast for ye who hunger for all things drone. “MOVE 1978” comprises the entirety of side A and features an audio recording of a police attack on the MOVE Organization, a black radical group from Philadelphia. The voices are almost entirely obfuscated by the thick sludge of mutant sound that accompanies them. The flip side, “No Voice,” is a remix of the backing drone from the other side. Here, Jacques ramps up the unholiness of the source material to indescribable proportions. This is seriously frightening stuff! 7/10 -- Bryon Hayes (28 April, 2010)
