Post-Rocktoberfest: The Papa Sprain Saga Continues

October 5, 2009 at 10:21 pm Leave a comment

Those of you who’ve been following the comments on the original Papa Sprain post have probably noticed the existence of nine (9) new songs on Gary McKendry’s Myspace page. This, friends, is the magic of Post-Rocktoberfest!

Right now, it’s hard to know quite  what to make of these new tracks but the likes of “Allow Users” and “Snake Paper Money” certainly seem like logical continuations of the trajectory launched by Papa Sprain’s Tech Yes 7″.

This is all pretty rudimentary stuff on one level – simple but highly processed spoken word loops repeating for two-and-a-half minutes, before fading out. Still, it’s also clear that whatever unearthly spirit was haunting McKendry all those years ago is still with us.

Papa Sprain is alive, well and sounding a bit like Machinefabriek. Whatever next?
