    GROBBING THRISTLE    
  "Hidden Strategies"  digipack CD 2009  
    / experimental ambient / noise with postindustrial /  
    Who would expect that under the name Grobbing Thristle are hidden mutated clones of Genesis P. Orridge, will be surprised by the amount of sound strategies used by the Poznań's ensemble. Despite that GT knowingly place themselves in continuum named by the creations of 20 Jazz Funk Greats”, their noise-electronic collages with every listening bring new musical universes.

On one of the levels Grobbing Thristle play steel symphony of postindustrial earthy Inferno. Noisy wind of clicks, cracks, laptop grinds, insect like microsamples and psychotic looped vocals lead into paranoic world like in novels of Philipa K.Dicka. The thing that scares here the most is by paradox, the most common and accustom element - voice. The words "...So yes I have to go now, so bye bye..." opening the album sound like a goodbye before descending into the abyss. But this is a hell of cybernetic robots - this is a music that brings pain. Fortunately for artistic might of the recordings GT knows how to dose it.

Grobbing Thristle is close to Coil's vision of "lunar music". It's the same type of psychoactive spells, slowly finding and tasting what hidden beyond the courtain of everyday time. The project idea came from Radek Dziubek, former co-creator of Blimp (grow up from post-punk scene and minimal rock Polish precoursors of postrock fusions). From them they learned how to describe the fragile nature of world, by dosing the intense of sonic signal. Grobbing Thristle made one rare thing - finding energy between what "live" and "mechanic", emotional and dehumanized, spontanous and constructed, created their own musical idiom. What more important - even though their experimental ambitions, the recordings hipnotyze with dense, mysterious, and often momochromatic aura. Dark and disturbingly beautiful album.
