This CD was released in May 2024 by Fish El Fish, an experimental musician from Sheffield, UK, who is also a member of Hunter Gracchus, in a limited edition of 5 copies by the UK experimental label Adhuman.

As the title suggests, "Dracula's Dog with the Fangs" contains 8 songs of completely meaningless sound poetry - strange beats. It comes in a 4-sided digipack.

I get addicted to it every time I listen to it.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Syed Kamran Ali (Hunter Gracchus, Harappian Night Recordings) presents Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs, the first album from his newly launched Fish el Fish project. As if kicking the existing ideas of Harappian Night Recordings' work into the orbit of new singularity, Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs is a dense swarm of voices, electronics and smashed instruments thrashing and wailing through filters of avant-psychedelic shimmer, imitative exotica and atrophied fusion-esque sheen. Dry and mysterious spoken-word prose underpins the sound, seeming to speak esoteric geopolitical allusions one moment and glib, snide quips the next. These discourses, while barely permeable, feel like an entire universe of vivid images, begging to be deciphered and explored in detail.

Yet even upon repeated listens to this fascinating work, it's hard to work out exactly what the music's mind was. Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs is too raw and homely to be the product of a cultural strategy, with a pristine DIY spontaneity and a blown-away fidelity that suggests a willingness to let things take their course. But from the moment you play it, there's something confident, fully realized and otherworldly about this music that's no accident. Comprised mostly of short song-length pieces, each incredibly varied in shape and feel. Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs has a fully formed "proper album" quality that only intensifies the curiosity of where on earth it all came from. Whatever the answer, whatever its secrets, this is the weirdest and most wonderful thing adhuman has ever done."

Adhuman:

"Syed Kamran Ali (Hunter Gracchus, Harappian Night Recordings) introduces 'Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs'; the first album from his newly minted Fish el Fish project. As if to kick off the existing ideas of his Harappian Night Recordings work into all-new orbits of singularity, 'Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs' wrenches a dense throng of voices, electronics and busted instrumentation thrashing and wailing through filters of avant-psychedelic glimmer, mock exotica and atrophied, fusion-esque sheen. A dry, mysterious spoken prose underpins the sonics, appearing to speak in terms of daunting geopolitical allusions in one breath, then glib, tongue in cheek piss-taking sarcasm the next. These narratives pull you immediately into what feels like an entire universe of vivid though scarcely penetrable imagery, begging to be decoded and explored in detail.

Yet even through repeated listens of this enticing work it is difficult to fathom exactly the type of thinking this music has sprung from. Far too crude and homespun to be the product of arch cultural strategy, 'Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs' is possessed of a blown out fidelity indicative of untarnished, DIY spontaneity and the willingness to let things emerge as they will. Clear as day from the moment of playback, however, is a confident, fully realised other worldliness to this music that is nothing accidental. Comprised chiefly of shortish, song-length pieces, each notably varied in shape and feel, there is a fully formed 'proper album' quality to 'Dog Wearing Dracula Fangs' which only reinforces curiosities about exactly where the fuck this has all come from. Whatever the answer, whatever its secrets, this is probably the weirdest and wonderful release adhuman has had the pleasure to take on so far. "
