A bizarre album of vocalizations, dictaphone recordings, and other phlegmatic and spittled output from the UK duo of Jon Marshall and Joe Murray, who appropriately name this strange album with the word "Incomprehension", a word which the 14 tracks of this CD live up to.

Papal Bull: Argot Of Incomprehension (Discombobulate / Sing ing Knives)

Label: Discombobulate / Sing ing Knives    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Double-quick Dictaphone-heavy duo scraping at a clay pot long regarded as sacrilegious for mortal men. Jon Marshall and Joe Murray poke a sensitive sonic scab before ripping open a new wound filled with densely manipulated voice jaxx, swooping holler and tape fingering with tight nŐ shiny production values like these bulls just strolled outta Houston, Texas. Fire escape music for risky fritters.

Jon Marshall runs the world-renowned Singing Knives label from his Sheffield UK base and plays in respected freak-units: Roman Nose, Akke Phallus Duo and Rotten Tables Golden Meat. Joe Murray plays often as Posset in any number of Northern UK pick-up groups."-Discombobulate

"UK denizen-botherers Jon Marshall and Joe Murray dry heave an audible escape hatch into phlegm heaven via syrupy dictaphone gropings and other highly questionable fronts to musical chicanery. Those who enjoy the timeless fireside pleasurings of vocal based flux will enjoy Argot Of Incomprehension, and the several hits (to the ear nuts) it contains within. Barking babies agree it's quite the stuff. File under comb-over cross-over."
