Evol – Magia Potagia (Mego) 2005


What a fucking shitty record this is. Released on the usually safe label Mego, Magia Potagia which probably translates to”piece of crap” is one of the most excruciating noise records I’ve ever sat through. Evol are a Spanish duo who robbed me of $20 by not having a warning sticker saying how useless this record is. There are three tracks. The first sounds like John Wiese scoring a Loony Toons cartoon which, you know, sounds fucking awesome until you realise that the fucking thing goes for 28 fucking minutes. The second sounds like a swarm of electronic mosquitoes which again  sounds totally great but that’s all it fucking does – no variation, no interest full stop. The third sounds like the music of a fairground carousel being back masked – again no variation. The concept is all good the execution all bad. These guys obviously have a sense of humor but if you’re looking for some fun in your noise go buy a Jazkamer record instead – they are way better.

  1. Shit, how is it possible for them to go wrong with a name like Evol? (ha!)

    Hey, did you buy your copy of Prurient’s Black Post Society through the Cold Springs website? I ordered a couple of albums, including that one, from them a few weeks back and while the transaction’s gone through my card the cds still haven’t arrived and nor have I gotten a notice that they’ve shipped. I emailed the site, but haven’t heard anything from them. Wondering if I’m just being paranoid……
