Gobby – Wakng Thrst For Seeping BanheePosted: May 11, 2014
There seems to be some weird weirdo psychic network over there in New York City. Like CHUDs or something, these individuals connect their skewed, horrorific plunderphonic vision and throw it back at us amplified tenfold. First James Ferraro with his post-everything mutant collages and now the mysterious Gobby, debuting with his first full-length on UNO NYC!, titled Wakng Thrst For Seeping Banhee (sic!). Recalling the deeply psychedelic spoken word passages and cut-up samplescapes of Negativland, Gobby collects the resin from the collective mind of the Internet and translates it into digital madness with titles such as “Season 1 Episode 5”, “Kill Dog Because Hungry” or “Like If You Pee On The Side of the Bowl”, recalling Facebook status messages or Google search results. If Far Side Virtual was the glossy mall, then Wakng Thrst For Seeping Banhee is the scrapyard.
