about

Rough improvisations on electric guitar + occasional loopstation.
Was first released digitally at the (now defunct) Dog Eared Records netlabel in 2009.

“12 unclassifiable guitar pieces, sometimes terse, often abrasive, a chemistry set burping red and orange flares over a cheerful radioactive green background… neither improv, noise, psychedelia, angular jazz rock dissonance nor Loren Mazzacane Connors inspired musings, brunk’s work flexes all over the map leaving behind iodine stains and cigarrette burns… and some studied moments of visceral beauty.” (Review by E. Padilla)

The track “Cellulos. Microsist.” was included as “track 13″ on the ‘Mind The Gap’ CD (nr. 80) by Gonzo (Circus) Magazine #93 (sept 2009).

Gonzo Circus / Mind The Gap review (in dutch):

"‘brunk’ (het alter ego van Vlaming Bert Vanden Berghe) bestaat al sinds 1998. In ruim tien jaar bracht hij een groot aantal, gevarieerde cd(r)’s uit. De nummers op ‘Spondylitis Ankylosans’ zijn erg directe, ongepolijste en vaak vrij dissonante gitaarimprovisaties (sommige met een loopstation, andere zonder, maar altijd met een gitaar die vrij willekeurig of heel intuïtief vreemd ‘gestemd’ is), opgenomen in ongeveer een week. Alles werd in één adem opgenomen, en niet meer bijgewerkt of gepolijst achteraf – het ging Vanden Berghe om de ruwe expressie. Ruis, fouten en lo-fi klankkwaliteit horen dus integraal bij het geheel, zoals ‘Cellulos. Microsist.’ mooi laat horen."
