Jar Moff – Commercial Mouth LP (PAN 31)
‘Commercial Mouth’ is the debut LP from Jar Moff, an Athens based artist working in collage forms. Following on from his previous remix on the Harald Grosskopf Synthesist / Re-Synthesist LP on RVNG last year, and a digital release for Leaving Records, this is his first full-length LP. Both his visual and aural oeuvre take the form of cut up and reformations in the manner of previous PAN stablemates like Joseph Hammer and Ghedalia Tazartes, remodeling the past in order to create something new out of the modern detritus, and nestles in nicely alongside the recent ‘Diversions 1994-1996′ release from Lee Gamble. The result is a baffling yet functioning head-on collision between early plunderphonics and an abstracted futuristic hip hop aesthetic.
