Holy shit! From the blood and mucus infested steaming pits of Hollywood, Dorset, cometh this hairy slab of farmer noise, in the form of the long-awaited return to the interpretation of entire albums by Ergo Phizmiz.
Following on from his notorious covers of Aphex Twin (which Aphex loved, but Aphex fans didn't...good....), the 2004 reinvention of the entirety of the Velvet Underground's "White Light White Heat" (which may well have contributed to the death of Lou Reed), and the trip to the Amish dancehall that was the Phizmoided version of The Prodigy's "Music For the Jilted Generation" way back in the heady days of 2009 (which has given Keith from the Prodigy irritable bowel syndrome ever since), comes....
IN UTERO. A cover version for ramshackle and broken instruments of Nirvana's glorious swansong.
Get it while it's hot...
UPDATE: The music copyright police were quick off the mark (hence the empty box below), and the FMA version of the album has been removed. SO! Sink your teeth into this
ZIP FILE OF THE ENTIRE ALBUM.

This album is dedicated hook, line, and sinker, to Talulah & Autumn, the world's biggest Nirvana fans.

"Some Folk Can", in which Ergo Phizmiz presents an epic of super-magick-sexy-electro-mechanical-marvels.
Combining a myriad approaches from his last fourteen years of adventures in the further reaches of experi-pop-fragmento-collage-musicking into new and surprising shapes and combinations, "Some Folk Can" sees Ergo Phizmiz blur and toy with the boundaries and blurred lines of acoustic and computer music. And not a Thicke Robin in sight....
Harmoniums fly through the air and clash with electric guitars, woodblocks of all shapes and sizes judder against one another, great big airships of the history of music explode into one another. Then all the world went dark. Because some folk can.
