released April 29, 2014

Double cassette madness from this odd couple- on "Crumbling Mouth Parables", Scrapie Flock provide all the dark, dank agricultural decreptitude you could ever wish for...deeply parasitic synth and feedback cling to the damp underbelly of collaged wood/metal/glass improv...meanwhile Playful Dick have cooked up some fresh music to accompany a bunch of ancient, previously unused lyrics, coming across in the process a little like Richard Youngs trying to make a Black Sabbath mini-album...or is it the other way around?! For "Treatments", the Flock and the Dick swapped scraps and proceeded to commit heinous acts upon said source sounds, to predictably DELIGHTFUL effect.
