URBANFAILURE - RANDOM SHADOWS (7" lathe cut by Sky Burial Productions/Urb Sounds)

A highly limited lathe cut 7" recorded by Urbanfailure, who ever that might be, and apparently the three pieces on this 7" are all live recorded, which is actually a great achievement.

urbanfailure in short text by The Blank Stare

Urbanfailure a.k.a. Michal Lichy╠ü is a stable member of the Bratislava's experimental scene, with productions dating back to 2001. Being one of the founders of Urbsounds, rooted in the D.I.Y. punk and noise scene, he appreciates the dirty concrete reality that Bratislava has to offer, using it as an object of inspiration. This muse is definitely noticeable in his pure hw improvisations with features of techno, noise, and other music genres, sometimes peeking out from the endless  jam, causing a never-ending audio surprise. One of the most underrated musicians of Bratislava's experimental scene deserves recognition from his contemporaries listeners and producers alike - not only for his non-traditional and uncompromising attitude, but also for his good quality and inspirational production.
