TUNE Salisman and His Blessed Eunuchs - Who's The Immigrant Now?
Two Chicago miscreants – poisoned by black market memory pills – slip into comas to awaken six months later, transplanted to Newcastle, UK. They disappear into the grimy pedal steel underground, hesitant to draw attention to themselves. Their conspirator: a local electrician churning their melodies into surreal fever dreams. Minimal fragments, words, and images emerge from their unconscious half-year. Field recordings harness the desperation of birds. There is no off-ramp or rope.
Salisman are Paul Foreman and Travis Salisbury, joined on this recording by Chris Tate and Joe Daley.
'Absolution' is their debut album, released by Cruel Nature Records as limited-edition cassette / digital download on 31 July 2020
