"Last week I was lucky to preview a new recording by Mike Meanstreetz with BARNES & SNARB of Amps for Christ (from a split 12″ with massive-maestros Bastard Collective on Black Claw Records). The first track plunges earpopping deep into magnetic tape manipulation. The long tradition of MINDBENDING music which was made possible (& simply cannot be created without) this medium is “tape”. Absolutely took me to a time & place I had not been in far too long." NELSON (MITB/BASTARD NOISE/AMPS FOR CHRIST)
