Hitting Birth

Thirst of the Fast Three Years
Tim Kerr Records

Compilation of assorted odds n’ ends from Portland Industrial heavyweights Hitting Birth Family Circus.
There’s tribal drumming and scrap metal percussion to spare, as well as pounding, driving bass on top of the spacey electronics. The unit – which reeks as much of patchouli as they do industrial-strength gear oil – incorporates elements of surrealism and Dada as well as Hip Hop. There is ample evidence to suspect that they were aided and abetted by the mighty Smegma, another Portland institution. This is a savage document of another time and place and a weird artifact of the aggro-industrial period as filtered through P-Town’s hippy-dippy sensibility.
