If you never hear this recording, you’ll never know what it sounds like.

Having said that, it remains merely to say that, if you do hear it, you’ll be none the wiser. On this CD, Crackly Discs, living up to their name, have applied their idiosyncratic approach to mixing to such perfection that scarcely any music raises itself above the persistent hissing and crackling. If it weren’t for the cover and the press release material, it would not be possible to say who is playing what or when.

According to the press release, Onomatopoeia is made up of Timothy Ng on garbage bag, Yvette Fontainbleurque on vocals and dope, Ladislaw Mistoczec on nose contents, Freddy Poop on bass chicken and Theodore O’Hanrahan on broken glass.

Most of the tracks are originals, although two are covers: of Hitler’s invasion of Poland in 1939; and of George W. Bush clearing his throat during morning ablutions.

On hearing this recording, Amelia Erhart put up her umbrella, held out her hand and was never seen again.

No earplugs and an apology.
