about

OESB-24
Released February 2009

Australian Charles Curse's music is one of the weirdest things I've come across all year. On Rain in Skull, fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, children's voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is equally perplexing and intriguing. It's all presented in a decidedly lo-fi environment but the sound construction is anything but simple, as this is a complex sonic stew, unique in the true sense of the word.
- Mats Gustafsson The Broken Face

Limited edition of only 200 copies LP reissue of an obscure 2007 CD-R release. Hailing from Australia, Curse channels the disembodied spirits of fringe singer-songwriters like Roy Harper, Bill Fay and Syd Barrett while filtering his song concepts through a claustrophobic post-Xpressway logic, using a ton of murky lo-fi effects, warped children’s voices, haunting vocal drones, tapes, lead guitar that shadows Loren Connors’ work circa Hell’s Kitchen Park and the kind of raggedy man-on-the-brink style of Alastair Galbraith and Peter Jefferies. A singular release with a classic private press/weirdo feel.
