Minóy - Plain Wrap Purgatory (cassette, Sound Of Pig - SOP 96)


Minóy or Stanley Keith Bowsza (October 30, 1951 - March 19, 2010) was a prolificAmerican  DIY sound artist, a home taper active in mail-art. He has created numerous releases on cassettes and gained a high rank position in cassette culture spheres. If you are still not familiar with this unique persona I suggest you to read this and this articles. Or get a fresh book/cassette/cd here.
Since I heard The Dying Man, a collaboration release made by David Prescott and himself, I got hooked and after a quite of time that passed - I'm still under the spell of the magician of his own, the spell that holds me with empathy identified with endless embracing.
Plain Wrap Purgatory is a droning sound collage with eerie vocals, typical Minoy-ish. Intense, licentious, emotional, abstract... He is sharing with us his darkest secrets but he is so cold, so indifferent.
What is he doing? Is this real? It seems he is so into his musical rite, he transforms his creature to some unknown far above dimensions...
