"There is a certain genius in curating and archiving if it's done in the right way. Boston's PHIL MILSTEIN is a master of this art. His projects recontextualizing 'found' material are as inventive and original as anything you'll run across. Another maestro of the form is Maine's SKOT SPEAR (aka id m theft able). We already vinylized one of the projects he uncovered, The Weeny Man LP. And now it's time for another. Originally released by Skot in 2002 as a CDR on his own Maang-Disc label, EEEE EEEEE documents a cassette he found in the basement of a friend's house late in the last century. The music is a solo set recorded by Skot's friend's younger brother, back when he was in sixth or seventh grade. And it's kind of a masterpiece, along the lines of Human Skab, Teddy Fire and the like (although, truthfully, we think it's the best of this particular pre-pubescent breed). What the hell EEEE thought he was doing is anyone's guess, but the results are weird, self-consciously smutty, and possessed of a de facto avant garde heft that is difficult to resist. Lyrical topics are downbeat (as befits the artist's age group) and the key/rhythm-box based arrangements really sneak up on you. It's guaranteed to make you feel like you (yourself) are rolling around on filthy shag carpeting in a damp rural basement, dreaming that you were anywhere else, and moaning in as musical a way as your damage will allow. A readymade classic that would have been lost were it not for Mr. Spear. Let us salute him and all the other geniuses of trash recycling. They are the true vanguard."—Byron Coley, 2017 Edition of 300.
