Terrifying Experience single I posted here a little under a month ago, although on this vinyl pairing, Mitch Mitchell (of Guided By Voices renown) decided to expand the group's moniker by incorporating his own name into it. All in the pursuit of marketability I suppose. No harm done. On their side of the 45, Mitchell and Co. lead things off with the rugged, punky riff-roarer "Friday Night Fights," that is all too brief. It's swiftly followed up by the droney, blues stomp of “Big City.” Adorning the flipside is a clangy slice of tuneful, yet meagerly recorded indie guitar rock, courtesy of one Illyah Kuryahkin (an assumed name for New York-based lo-fi dabbler Dean Wilson) that would do fans of early Monsterland and Belreve pretty damn well. It isn't clear if Wilson is currently making music (in a similar mold or otherwise), but you can investigate some of his other Clinton-era recordings, including Count No Count, over on Amazon.
