GOD PUSSY present two soothing noise attacks from this CDr released by russian label "Torga Amun Records". If you are not familiar with him, GOD PUSSY is a one-man-band (Johnes Da Silva) who play some pedal distortions and effects. He form a sound somewhat similar to Merzbow or GX Jupiter Larsen, an ultra changeable wall of disharmonic noises. Strictly musical GOD PUSSY is perhaps not very different than other similar harsh noise projects, but it has also something more than music or noise: attitude and principles. At 25 minutes these two pieces are a perfect length, enough time to get accustomed to what’s going on, but at the same time it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. Two long tracks dedicated to Carlos Lamarca, who frankly I didn´t know him until I read sometging in the net. He was a part of the revolutionary guerrilla group Popular Revolutionary Vanguard ("Vanguarda Popular Revolucionária" - VPR) and became, along with Carlos Marighella, one of the major elements of revolutonary subversion in Brazil. Lamarca was the only man in the republican History of Brazil to receive the status of traitor, being considered an "enemy of the state number one" by the military dictatorship of the time.

Awesome collaboration between veteran GX Jupiter Larsen and God Pussy. Both projects recorded here a one thirty minutes long track plus a short noise cut. About sound the first continue in his usual musical line characterized for that kind of old, dirty and junk noise as precedent releases. And about Johnes Da Silva (God Pussy) to mention his style is perhaps more "clean" and electronic, with no structure at all and full of changes in several senses: sound, frequency, speed, volume, etc.

Despite someties GOD PUSSY noise can to remind a horrible war, its musician (Jhones Silva) prefer to describe his music as "Ruídos de Favela" (noises from favela). So, it would be more exact to think about favelas, pauverty, policial abusses or social injustices than war, army, etc. And in fact GOD PUSSY is one of these few harsh noise projects which have something more than empty music and he use to leave some messages with ideas and concepts about social issues, society and personal attitude in front of subjects such as: ecology, animal liberation, human rights, etc. Obviously meanwhile you are listening to this album or another GOD PUSSY recording, is almost impossible to decipher this message or intention, but you can see the kind of artwork which he use in his albums or the titles of the tracks.
