The return of Andy Votel’s most elusive alter-ego with a new album of delirious and darkened collage pieces brought to you by his own Pre-Cert Home Entertainment label, run alongside longtime spar, Sean Demdike.Hiding behind “Cowardly Pseudonyms” inspired by the incognito exploits of Jean-Pierre Massiera and a long list of Italian library musicians, Applehead is the twice-removed alter-alter-alter ego project of Dead-Cert, Finders Keepers, Cacophonic, Pre-Cert label boss and designerAndy Votel aka Anworth Kirk aka Xian Orphic aka Tandy Love aka Tony Deval aka Neotantrik and the list goes on.This hang-dried and un-cured collection of low-brow electronics, oblique movie-tones, cold-funk, ready-made poetry and domestic plunderism spans five years since the debut Applehead LP on the Pre-Cert label, collectively mis-managed by Sean Demdike Canty and Votelhimself.Cut and pasted from a pool of overnight rare synth-lends, some obscure foreign-pop fix-ups and a stash of emotive tonal sketches and tape-edits (prepared when touring Milan and Rome with Suzanne Ciani and Northern Italy with the blink-missable Stanza Nera punk-funkproject) these multifarious, Crepaxian comic-book compositions have clearly absorbed a strong Italian DIY muse.With respectful nods to Daniela Casa, Raskovich, Frizzi and AR Luciani, Applehead also combines surrealist shlock with Letterist informed random Roman femalespoken word and occasional back-handed salutes to Throbbing Gristle and NWW projects.This self-motivated, naturalistic response to the broad vista that has informed 20 years of Votel’s unwaning multi-dis adventures offers an infrequent opportunity to hear his personalproblematic-pop and scalpel-happy art in the comfort of his own creative confides complete with square-pegs and sandpaper. Did we mention the apple fixation?
