In a relatively short space of time Dominick Fernow has become one of my favourite people on the planet. I say people of course because his influence and expertise doesn’t stop at merely being a musician and harbinger of extremity, he throws down some of the most interesting records available on his shockingly crucial Hospital Productions imprint and manages to stock a collection of musical insanity at his Manhattan-based record shop of the same name.
Pleasure Ground is originally a double cassette release on Hospital Productions (came with a lock of hair!) and this release takes this micro edition masterwork out of the hands of the lathe cut Ebay Nazis and puts it into, you, the consumer’s, hands (without the hair this time). With this tool, you have the ultimate jam. Blast this as the cannon fire destroys everything around you and rest soundly that the destruction is mutually assured." - Load.
