This album was created using a variety of circuit bent toys and modified audio equipment. The result is from several recording sessions which were then edited.


This is the opening CD for the label "Canned Beef Records" and while all the other discs are pro-CDR this is the only actual CD so far. It's more of an EP running at over 27 minutes and features 8 tracks. Xdugef, in my mind, can be described as "circuit bending noise" but that doesn't bring up enough of the scope of the range of sounds on this short disc. The opening track "Trolling For Clams In Unlikely Places", track 2 "There's A Fly In My Bowl Of Drano Soup", and track 5 "The Nursery Rhyme Slowly Slides Into The Gapping Maw Of My Adulthood" are very musical sounding as far as noise goes. Both contain soft ambient stretched elements that give them a lot of replay value. Most of the CD sounds experimental and at times soft industrial loops come in as well, track 6 "Mega-bight" is a good example. If you’re familiar with Big City Orchestra this is something you'll enjoy a lot. The artwork fits very well the disc and features a collage of various mannequin heads and figures. Overall this first show by Canned Beef is well done and showcases "a collage of sounds for the mind".
Glad I found the time to write a review on one of my all time favorite noise CDs. Xdugef surprizes us here with a nightmarish drone and glitch/bend CD that takes you to another planet where disaster lurks around the next corner. Often you glide through looped soundscapes with industrial feel and events happen on this soundscape - like factories appearing on the horizon or funny beings telling you their story of thorrow and demise.

There is no uphill in this glitched out spaced out slow drone world - everything ends in decay, loss, loosing of parts. Tracks are frequently engulfed in slow sad melodic lines of humming from some transistors. Hard to describe because this CD is certainly in its own category.

Overal, it is in the realm of ambient noise with an industrial feel to it for the choice of sound and the looped character. A lot of distorted and screwed up sounds - transistors, machines, and tortured toys.

The CD is very well produced and mastered, perhaps with the exception of track 3 - I am sure the artist wants it like this but my car speakers made my car vibrate from nose to ass - maybe the artist wanted to not only have music coming from the speaker but from the whole environment. If so, he succeeded completly. That is one monster bass.

Overall, this is one of the CDs I wouldn't want to part with and has inspired me a lot. Planet X is a result of listening to this. So get your copy today from www.xdugef.com or www.roilnoise.com (distro) and agree or disagree with this review.
