"An absorbing look at Ariel Rosenberg's early musique concrčte epic. All songs written, recorded and produced by ARIEL PINK. Restoration and mastering by Alain at One Million Mangos Berlin. "Thrash and Burn" dates from a time when Ariel Rosenberg, then a few years from turning "Pink", first proclaimed himself a "20th Century Composer", without a trace of irony in his voice. Appropriately, this early work takes the form of a musique concrčte epic forged from Rosenberg's late-90's faux-primitif, garage-punk, and tape-loop experiments. At 94 minutes and 36 tracks, "Thrash and Burn" displays the symphonic ambitions of his genre-devouring pop saga, "Haunted Graffiti", but with little in the way of fastidious album-oriented constructions. "Thrash and Burn" was discovered in 2005, in a pile of cassettes and CD-R's in Rosenberg's Beverly Hills flat. Grier and Rosenberg then made an initial reconstruction attempt, and "Thrash and Burn" became a 4-cassette box set for the inaugural release of Human Ear Music, in 2006. The Wikipedia page for "Thrash and Burn" places its origin sometime in 1998. Now remastered up to 24 bit resolution, dynamically and tonally balanced on an Apogee Rosetta and two solid-aluminum monoblock amps." (label info)
