Cock E.S.P – Greatest Dicks 3

up_062104_cockespSub-titled as “The Best And Worst of Cock E.S.P., 2001-2003,” this is a 3″ CD with 40 tracks on it. “Greatest Dicks 3” includes some additional sounds from the likes of Crank Sturgeon, Prairiepusher, Eugenics Council, Rotten Piece, Newton and Panicsville as well a remix by Burning Star Core. The final track is a 6 and a half minute interview, which should give you some idea how short many of these tracks are, many never breach the 20 second mark. It is a mix of harsh noise elements, gritty electronics, quirky beats, and sampling (particularly of little kids). There are some pretty cool sounds here, with a nice fried quality. The use of feedback is done well, there is quite a bit going on in many of them even though they are so brief. The sound quality is good etc. I wish some of the tracks were longer because they do have an interesting feel, light hearted but seriously executed it would seem. I thought the last thing submitted by this project was pretty half hearted, and never felt compelled to check them out over their long presence in the Noise scene, but I quite enjoyed this. – Scott
