---------------------------

Edition of 50.

"Found Drowned are the improvising trio of James O'Sullivan, Peter Marsh and Paul May. The three first played together around a decade ago and released their eponymous first album back in 2012; since then they've occasionally popped up at the usual improv hotspots , collaborating with the likes of New Zealand violinist Chris Prosser or Danish saxophonist Julie Kjaer among others.

Clownslave finds the band back in the studio and in inspired form. O'Sullivan's arsenal of feedback whoops, distended twangs, blurry resonances and insectoid clicks rarely resembles anything guitar-like --likewise May's stridulating and stroking of skin, wood and metal often sounds more like the noises you might hear in some imaginary nightmarish farmyard than anything produced by a drummer.

Some passages could easily be mistaken for field recordings of ancient industrial machinery or the sounds of a magnetic storm ravaging a distant planet's ionosphere or a gamelan orchestra heard through a knackered old shortwave radio. It's not all abstraction though --on occasion the elastic rumble of Marsh's bass steers proceedings into a heavy motorik throb or a burst of deconstructed scrapyard jazz and you suddenly remember this is actual music made by humans.

Found Drowned don't have a manifesto or a method or a mantra --the three don't really talk about what they do, and strange as it may seem, they have fun doing it. They hope you might have fun listening to it. You never know… "
