Product Description

A journey of the incredible ... The path-treading encounter of Massimo Pupillo, Chris Corsano and David Chalmin rock/noise/experimental improvisers - with the universe of the 50s cult science-fiction radio show Dimension X. Based on stories from the show, each track unfolds the strange world of thinking machines, robots, chaos, Martians, madness ... and humankind s quest for emotion, truth and hope. Building on many hours of raw, instinctive and live improvised material, David Chalmin returned to the studio to create an album of strong personality.

Review

::FLUX::
One of the strangest records to come through my letter box for years

::MOJO::
free-rock supergroup travel deep into retro sci-fi

::UNCUT:: 4 Stars ...a thrash-noise supergroup

::ROCKSOUND::
hell yeah [...] I hear a new world

::LOWDOWN MAGAZINE - 10/10::

Impossible to mention a highlight since the whole record is an amazing experience

::ORGAN MAGAZINE REVIEW:: Album of the week
Radio art meets top quality hard-boiled improvised avant jazz/art rock...Highly recommended

::BUZZ::
the first ace album 2008

::THE WIRE::
An interesting combination of theatre and music

::EXPERIMUSIC::

a strong, strange and captivating journey into avant-rocks distorted underbelly
Dimension X is a stirring tribute to the cult show whilst being a serious piece of manic, off-kilter psyche-rock undertaken within a improv-Jazz aesthetic

::JAZZWIZE::

something incredibly poignant and moving

::THE STOOL PIGEON::
twisted pop and high art at the same time

::PLAN B::
I'll say it: far out

::DEN OF GEEK::
This album is a treat for any sci-fi fan and a wonderful homage to the golden age of radio

--Kml Sonic Invaders

"Bye mom, I'm goin' out"... plnk chhrree plnk thmpthmp budump duoosh. Sampling 50's sci-fi horror stories from radio theater, Dimension X provide a backdrop of scraping tension and auditory orgasm release. Put together by Italian guitarist David Chalmin, he called upon the rhythmic contortionists Massimo Pupillo [of ZU, Offonoff, and Original Silence fame] and Chris Corsano [omni-collaborator for Ben Chasney, Thurston Moore, Darin Gray, Paul Flaherty, and apparently Bjork] to concoct a mad brew of impro-drama. The first cut is the most scarce, the focal point becoming the increasingly violent scenario involving Duke and Junior (the boy robot), where Junior is realizing his capabilities and limitations as something that is... Almost Human. Lola becomes a object of desire for the both of them and things get aurally caustic. After that, the album continues with snippets of other stories of similar space fright interrupted or accentuated with the menacing, intricate muscles of the trio. According to the liner notes, the dialogue and subtle synth effects added by Chalmin are cross-panned so when listened to in mono, become obsolete from the recording. Any party already familiar with the ZU discography, John Zorn's Dunn-Baron-Patton recordings (Moonchild, Astronome, Six Litanies for Heleogabalas, and Crucible) or the more rocking elements of the free improvisation, spontaneous music scenes might get a pleasant listen with the added kitsch of late-night radio robo-fright.

Once you get past the first track, the rest is heavily experimental, sci-fi prog rock. Strongly recommended for those with a sense of humor and preference for entertainment outside the mainstream. I hope KML Presents does another CD along these lines.
