THAR MAPSAL PROGRAM

SPACE

CDR DIGIPAK

LIMITED TO 100 COPIES

This cult underground band from Eastern France has released very few releases through the years but they’re all jewels. This is uncompromising old-school industrial-plasmical-noise, a
gathering of 9 improvised titles recorded on a 2-track recorder between 2005 & 2010, somewhere between early TG and Coil who’d have taken up on electric guitars.

Früher war alles besser (und sogar die Zukunft), eine Tatsache, die sich auch in der Musik widerspiegelt und vor allem im Industrial, wo überflüssige Moderne immer mehr die Oberhand gewinnt und der alte Geist von Legenden wie Throbbing Gristle (TG), Coil, SPK & Co ausstirbt – dieser Fortentwicklung trotzen Thar Mapsal Program, deren avantgardistisches Debüt “Space” den Charme vergangener glorreicher Tage vermittelt.

“Space” erblickte jüngst das Licht der Welt über Steelkraft Manufactory, dem Sublabel von Steelwork Maschine, das ausschließlich schmale CD-R Produktionen in einer Auflage von 100 Exemplaren rausgibt.

Gleich den übermächtigen Vorbildern setzen sich Thar Mapsal Program mit greifbaren Themen wie Frauen, Rituale & Wiedergeburt auseinander, aber auch mit undefinierbaren Inhalten, deren tiefere Bedeutungen wohl nur im Vollrausch hervortreten. Heißt, wem die Verwegenheit der industriellen Anfangstage zusagt, dürfte “Space”, das den bandeigenen Kosmos, der sehr stark an Coil gemahnt, wiedergibt, gefallen.

Auch in Punkto Tonkunst offeriert das französische Duo, bestehend aus Fahl & Projectman, viele Parallelen zu Coil, die soundtechnisch düster wie psychedelisch klangen, so wie eben Thar Mapsal Program auf ihrem Debüt “Space”, welches die Herren in einer Zeitspanne von 5 Jahren aufnahmen. Natürlich beruhen die meisten Passagen auf Synthesizerspuren, die die Herren mit vereinzelten Gitarreneinsätzen, ausdrucksvoller Gesangakrobatik & unzähligen Ton- wie Sprachsamples garnierten, wodurch sich dem Konsumenten eine intensive Masse erschließt, welche von der ersten Sekunde in die gute alte Zeit transformiert (& ohne dabei wie ein Plagiat zu wirken) – Wahnsinn! Besonders die Variabilität der Tracks lässt diese Arbeit zu einem Kleinod werden, das in jedem Augenblick überzeugen wie faszinieren mag und ausschließlich Menschen mit fortgeschrittenem Alter bedient. PS: Thar Mapsal Program spielten “Space” auf einem Zweikanalrekorder ein, weshalb hier definitiv nix an Moderne, sondern an die glorreiche Vergangenheit erinnert.

Fazit:

Mögen John Balance & Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson in Frieden ruhen, sie wären Stolz auf Thar Mapsal Programm und ihr sehr mitnehmendes Debüt “Space”, womit Ewiggestrige zu ihrer schönsten Zeit des Lebens fliegen – meine absolute Empfehlung!

Having released two albums on Audiotrauma, this French project now joined Steelkraft Manufactory. Five years after their previous album, “Space” appears a bit like a new beginning.
Thar Mapsal Program reminds me of Throbbing Gristle. The opening cut “Motherfucking Grace” is quite comparable to the early experiments of Genesis P. Orridge and his clan. It sounds ultra-experimental and all appears to be a kind of reaction against the established music standards. “Johnny Gilling” is a similar track in the genre and once again I felt a link with Throbbing Gristle. It doesn’t really sound as music rather than an assemblage of ideas, sounds and experimentalism. The typical touch Thar Mapsal Program added to their compositions is the kind of space-minded bleeps and signals. It brings an unexpected dimension to the sound. “Fish” and “Manège” are both perfectly illustrating the weird oeuvre of the project. This is not meant as being negative! Today “Space” sounds as an atypical release, but with a clear wink to the past and the early years of industrial & experimental music.
“Space” brings us back into time, a kind of retro sci-fi experience that will undoubtedly please the lovers of the genre!

The label describes this album as 'uncompromising old-school industrial-plasmical-noise, a gathering of 9 improvised titles recorded on a 2-track recorder between 2005 & 2010, somewhere between early TG and Coil who'd have taken up on electric guitars.' In some ways this is actually pretty accurate. I really didn't know what to make of this album at first. Some songs, such as 'Motherfucking Grace,' do evoke Throbbing Gristle (for example, 'Discipline' and 'Subhuman') with plenty of repetitive screaming that seems to mix TG with power electronics. 'La Poule Canon' also takes a similar track, but others wade into the Coil side of the pool with songs like Vahine evoking 'Stolen and Contaminated Songs era Coil and Fish sounding like it could be an outtake from Musick to Play in the Dark. Then we get a nice blast of harsh noise from 'Transcarnation.' In some ways I think that Thar Mapsal Program is at their best with electronic weirdness rather than the screaming. This is pretty good improv experimental which, according to the liner notes, was recorded in one take with no post-production or overdubs. What that tells me is that this would be a great live show. Worth checking out. This album weighs in at around 53 minutes.
