old man gloom Meditations In B (LP, £18.75)label: hydrahead
Limited vinyl reissue. A simpler time. Like Pepperidge Farms, and Little House On the Prairie. Two beautiful young men (Aaron Turner and Santos Montano) set off on their own, in the peak of their sexual virility, to forge a new path in brutally sludgy, crushing, apocalyptic, post-metal, post-hardcore, pre-Y2K, post-math, pre-friendster, post-rock riffs. It was a magical time, before they added a few "session players." Still regarded by some (mostly the guys who played on it) as Old Man Gloom's finest hour, Meditations in B was written in one afternoon, then recorded AND mixed in 12 hours.
