Comment: I can remember for a time when I decided to reverse the tape of The Fall`s dadaist post-punk issue Perverted By Language (1983, Rough Trade) and then listened to it from the beginning to the end. In fact, the result was not more frantic and weird with regard to the original one (being the favourite of mine by them). Schizoid Ops` 7-notch issue is a bit different case though obviously there is something which may remind of it. More profoundly, this issue is based on more and less known pop song structures which are heavily and thoroughly chopped up and warped. And they have done it with great pleasure. Furthermore, the volume level is very unstable, at times it is barely audible and at times it shouts into your ear. I guess the intention of it is to demonstrate its hostile antipathy against the music industry, towards the RIAA, against the established norms in producing mainstream music and representation of it. By its ideological context it is remarkably more enjoyable than by its nihilistic musical approach. The issue is a part of the discography of Eye Machine Recordings.
