"Hammered"
by Alan Vega
#10LPs

Countdown for my 10 all-time favourite albums.

Number 9; " DUJANG PRANG" ( 1996)

This album never existed!

......Well, it feels that way sometimes.
I have barely seen any comments or opinions on it. No feedback, no reviews.....even Alan Vega's Wiki page mentions not one descriptive word on it!
And I would guess that this is because of the lack of actual music on this album.
.....Well, speaking in the melodic sense, that is.
No tunes, no singing, no instrumental melodies.
Just Vega's yelps,hollers & babbling , accompanied by these coldly cranked-up industrial rhythms & the most relentless, disturbing background "noise" you can imaging.


This to me is not music but instead, aural Art. A statement to dissect.

It's like an insomniac junkies' drug-fuelled dream. Not enhanced in a haze of warm psychedelia but in a phase of a pure amphetamine/smack rush.A flickering, stuttering monochrome acetate image.....flashing, undiluted, euphoric....A forbidden crepuscular abyss that sucks you down & down until you have to struggle to avoid drowning...claustrophobic, suffocating and intensely harrowing....thump thump thumping with the recurring, tortured noise and concealed demonic 'voices' tormenting my sub-conscious ( are the voices actually there? )

This is a persistent experience. No let-up. It will continue until I am exhausted but I don't want it to end.
......and yes, this extraordinary album is to me, a dark, chaotic, existential place for the curious to absorb internally.

SO, this track......is, I think , the lightest and most accessible piece on the album!!

And if you want more , to taste a hint of madness,
then follow me and listen to the whole album.
