Disregarded (2000): Living Off the Table Scraps

Caldwell, Disregarded (Gameboy, 2000)

[cover forthcoming when I find my copy and take a picture of it]
Holy crap. I can’t believe I’ve had this sitting around my house as long as I have without any means of playing it. This is EXCELLENT stuff, brutal, off-the-scale high-pitched mayhem. Four tracks intended for comps and the like that never got where they were going. Sounds as if it’s nothing more than treated feedback, but depth and layering obviously aren’t the focus here—Caldwell want to bend your will to their vision of a brighter, more painful humanity, and by god, they’re going to do it whether you like it or not. Fantastic release. **** ½
