Want some ringing in your ears? Then look no further people...
The entire works of Tinnitus have been re-mastered and are up on Bandcamp awaiting your download for very reasonable prices.
I purchased the entire back catalogue but if you’re not as keen as me, I would suggest starting with Tape 12. Also known as ‘Futures Past’ as released on CD by Flying Nun in 1992. A collection of works starting with an almost 40 minute live set, it’s a good place to start delving into this deviant crew.
Dark, ambient, atmospheric, drone……experimental stuff that’ll make your hair stand on end. These guys could easily have just made horror movie soundtracks for the rest of their lives.
There’s a good write up on the history of the group here.
And to show off my own nerdish behaviour, I burned all the albums onto CD and made my own Tinnitus box set……
|Wasn't lying about the box set......|
See you in the hearing clinic :)
