Sunshine California - Leavin' on a Jetplane C40 on ghost dad
I remember hearing some Sunshine California circa 2007, and it was some thick&burly harsh wall. I've been searching for that release ever since. The problem with noise releases, is that its hard to collect all 12+ releases of any particular artist when they only put em out in editions of 7 or 12 copies. This tape happens to be of an edition of 50. Leavin' on a Jetplane starts out kinda flat, another low-fi bedroom recording of clicking hissing bare patch cord buzzing fuckery that doesn't really do much but lay there and squirm. In fact, all of side A and the first part of side B are more or less trash. By about the time you're ready to give up on this tape, SC hits a groove and drives it into a distorted echoing mess of awesome guitar that doesn't sound like guitar. Crush and reel. It's one of those heavy noise jams that hits your noise-spot if you listen with the right kind of ears. Spray-painted tape and case (something I usually wont tolerate) wasn't a deal breaker this time around. This probly isn't the Sunshine California I'm looking for, but it ain so bad. The search goes on.
