The Continental OP – Slitch

A curio for Oldham completists, Slitch is a double-sided disc featuring a DVD movie (Slitch, co-starring Oldham) and, on the flip, half an hour of music composed for it by Oldham and old associate Pajo, bunking off from his day job in Billy Corgan’s Zwan. Pajo, it seems, has the upper hand here, with a bunch of post-folk instrumentals, alternately lulling and unnerving, similar to his first solo work as Aerial M. The last two numbers, however, barrel into new territory for both men, being blokey and ramshackle punkers fronted by Oldham’s unrecognisable bellow. Flaky, but diverting.
