3 stars Merry Go Round music from Hell!

Electronic Noise composer Mauricio Bianchi's 1980 "Mectpyo/Blut"consists of two 40 minutes + - each, single compositions. Part A -" Maidanek Bakterium & Musique Bel", is an intense industrial "drone" like ride, that surely is the winner between both compositions. It carries the industrial experimental scope of Fripp & Eno's, 1973, "No Pussyfooting" and Lou Reed's first 1975 "Metal Machine Music" uncompromising noise like sublimination. This is the highlight, I repeat of this project.

On the other hand part B - "Mutant Brain & Mord Bahnhof", things get quiet boring. Maybe he was trying on the Conrad Schnitzler approach of raw experimentation, but unlike CON, who always applied the experimentation to his songwriting, MB stays short and proposes an over indulgent 40 minute long composition, dedicated to himself playing and recording his quiet boring, child like session of nothing relevant or original, composition wise of course.

UNEVEN, yet side A is a real no-frills, frantic, factory machine like, hypnotic, but consciously unappealing ride, well worth the waiting line.

Therefore ***3 "good but half short of essential" PA stars.
