Having launched in impressive fashion with a reissue of some Greek fire walking music that was complemented well by remixes from Pete Swanson and Vatican Shadow, a second release on the archival minded KEMAL arrives and it's just as good! The focus here is Skew-Whiff, the album inspired by the works of Mark Rothko that celebrated English drummer and experimental musician Charles Hayward released on the Belgian label Sub Rosa in 1990. Taking the title of Smell Of Metal, this second KEMAL release lifts two of the five compositions from Hayward's album and they come accompanied by remixes from Optimo's JD Twitch and Future Times captain Maxmillion Dunbar, with the latter a particularly inspired choice.
A - Smell Of Metal
B - Lopside
C - Smell Of Metal (Maxmillion Dunbar Version)
D - Lopside (A JD Twitch Optimo Espookio Version)
