Pilesar - Spider Bait

Hear The Track Here

Get your coats, I want to take you to one of the wilder spots around. The reason why is because there is different music, experimental music, difficult music, all-the-way-out-to-Pluto weird and then, finally in a haze of disjointedness and genetic malfunction, you reach the REAL outer limits. There, then, stands Pilesar, easily and by a country mile THE most different musician you are ever likely to hear. See when you've worked through all those levels of musical mayhem to find yourself in the company of Pilesar, you realise that he really is different. Not only from the standpoint of the instrumentation he sets his little jaunts in, to the often laugh out loud exuberance of it all.

As you can tell, I have Pilesaritis. Yep, I have been an avid listener to this entertaining musical deviant for a good many years now and he just keeps on getting weirder and better and better and weirder. Take Spider Bait, as a case in point. Even better, listen to the first twenty seconds of it, if it hasn't made you run away in terror yelling obscenities, Pilesar will definitely appeal to you. Pilesar uses anything at his disposal to make music, even parts of his own body, or yours if you get too close. His primary thrust is percussive, but he's shown some substantial electronica muscle in the past too.

Both of which contribute to making Spider Bait one of Pilesar's more accessible tracks, although I don't know why I bother to make that distinction any more because almost everyone I know really likes what Pilesar is about. What is not to like? The man rocks, rolls, slices, dices, gets down on the dancefloor, directs a church service and stomps seven kinds of crap out of the drums in this really excellent - even by his standards - instrumental. Pilesar squared is what it is, and it sounds wonderful.

Highly Recommended WTF-ry from the Master and MUST HAVE for fans.
