About this item

This vinyl-only special edition record from Jon Spencer’s alter-ego Heavy Trash is an album of previously unreleased wig outs, instrumentals, outtakes and other unhinged gems recorded throughout the band’s lifetime.

Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the men known as Heavy Trash, never thought that anyone could be watching or listening, let alone recording, when they perpetrated these middle-of-the-night flip-outs, improvisations, instrumentals and dangerous experiments in unchecked soul exposition and naked desire. Had they known the tape was rolling we would never have this demented document of darkness and decay. However, their demons have come to light and you are now invited to dance through the dusky shadows of a musical group on the edge.

‘Noir!’ is not for the weak, the uninitiated, dabblers or dilettantes. Seriés Aph?nos has gone to special pains to ensure that this record will never be a hit. You cannot give the people what they want, nor can you give this record back.

This is the 7th instalment of Seriés Aph?nos - a leftof- centre vinyl library concentrating on instrumentals, soundtracks and strange treasures from hidden corners. Previous instalments include the first vinyl release of Krzysztof Komeda’s soundtrack to Roman Polanski’s ‘Dance Of The Vampires’, Zarelli’s ‘Soft Rains’ (a sci-fi musical featuring Leonard Nimoy narrating a Ray Bradbury tale), and Cremator’s synthfest ‘Clear Air Turbulence’, amongst others.
