Ancient Chinese Secret - Caveat Emptor

Ancient Chinese Secret is another good Chris Dodge (of Spazz fame) project. This being the only album put out by them, and on good ol' sadly defunct Slap-A-Ham Records (Dodge's label) you'd think that you might know what the music would sound like. Don't get me wrong, it's powerviolence....sort of. Chris Dodge's wife (I think) sings on this, with some drummer from some pretty popular pv band (not sure which one). When I say "sings," though, I mean it. She sings on a powerviolence record.

There's a ton of weird shit on this, and it might not be for everyone, but check it out if you're a fan of the majority of Slap-A-Ham's catologue. It is a decent record, and one of the weirder ones. No guitar on this, but there's a few songs with some sound samples. Songs range from half a minute or so to two minutes or more.


1. Waiting For Doctor Bombay
2. A Nice Day
3. Moral Of The Story
4. Sakura
5. Hyper Liar
6. Obnoxious Fumes
7. The Overlook
8. The Basics
9. Outburst
10. Flight Or Fight
11. Quiet For The Choirmaster
12. Needle's Eye
13. The Candle Burns
14. A Passage Of Time

  6. It's interesting to see just how pervasive digital memory has become in our everyday lives. It's like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how cheap memory has become lately...

    Gahhhh, who am I to complain. I can't get by a day without using my R4 / R4i!
