All the noise stuff that's popped up SM recently got me thinking about the single man noise scape builder Jeff Witscher, better know as Secret Abuse. I guess Secret Abuse would fall under the Drone-noise remit but for me Secret Abuse has always been about building atmospheres and soundscapes, and then drowning them all under a sea of haunting noise. The man makes epic stuff. The 2008 L.P Violent Narcissus, on Not Not Fun, was some of Witscher's best work in my opinion, it had a more vicious edge to it, and although last year's The Immeasurable Gift explored new frontiers I still always find my self drawn back to one track Fly Away to Greater Pig Shit. It's vast sound scape of a song that builds to its own final destruction, like watching the on rush of nuclear fall out whilst standing in a perfect field flowers, kissed by a summer breeze. Total claim before the final storm. Personally I find cleansing, but then I would.
