Mike Connelly of Hair Police comes from Lexington, and his Gods of Tundra label recently issued the debut full-length from Walter Carson, a longtime Kentucky chum. Carson, who also jams with Connelly's bandmate Robert Beatty, has in addition released limited-edition titles for Chondritic Sound, Heavy Tapes, Ides, and Rampart. It might seem like Carson possesses a noise résumé from heaven, but don't expect the gleeful electronic wreck of Wolf Eyes or even Hair Police. This is Lexington, remember -- and genre cross-pollination is a rule of the jungle. Carson, for example, is interested in guitar-generated dronescapes as well as murky mellow atmospheres. If noise is what brands a hole in your stinky flesh, think of Carson as one who merely makes it smoke.
