Product Description

Monotract ‎– Pagu lp

(Independent Mind) Pagú is the latest affront to electronic music by knob-twiddling and button-punching noisicians Monotract from Miami, Florida. Using harsh electronic beats and bleets, ringing synthetic noise-tones, turntable abuse, and manipulated tapes as weapons, Monotract attack with agile precision and impressive ferocity. The results are a devastating mindfuck. Devoted as I may be when I drop the needle, I've only managed to listen to it in its entirety in one sitting a couple of times out of maybe ten attempts. It hurts my head and I think it's giving me an irregular heartbeat. It's like taking a beating. To follow this simile a bit further: much as two fighters earn each other's respect over the course of a grueling bout, Pagú has earned mine. - Edward McElvain

(All Music Guide) Describe Monotract in one word: mad. This trio from Miami can and will use any instrument or musical form to deconstruct, subvert and attack your music beliefs. Guitars, cheap synthesizers, distorted voice, toys, phone messages and computer processing all become part of an electronica freak circus where humor supports the big top. Pagu, released as an LP by Public Eyesore, throws 13 dizzying tracks at the listener in under 40 minutes. We are bounced and thrown from one tune to another in this no-man¹s-land somewhere between experimental electronica, (naive techno which has lost all its naivete) and noise. It is one hell of a ride and most listeners will give up trying to make sense of it all. That¹s the point. Don¹t fight it, accept the fact that anything goes and Pagu turns into a fun-filled adventure into the confines of underground music. 'Con la Cabeza en la Escuela' opens side one with a taste of stupid techno. This side¹s highlight is the two-part 'California,' a noise assault that hides much more craftsmanship than what you¹d expect. The flip side¹s standout is 'Ellen¹s Song,' which is basically a phone message turned into a dyslexic dance floor anthem. 'Hot Sine' arches back to vintage Industrial days. The last two cuts push the aural assault a few notches up, bordering on digital Merzbow in 'Nestron.' Surprisingly, there is a lot of this kind of music out there, but Monotract¹s possesses that level of excitement and obvious involvement that separate the professionals from the amateurs. - Francois Couture
