info
The first eight tracks were originally released as Fompas, a split tape with Peep on Morc Records on July 2 2001. Psychon Troopers were named Psychon Mist for that release, because on each of the songs there’s one member of Psychon Troopers missing. This re-release contains the bonus track Hautmesse-bhf, which was originally released in 2002 on the compilation cd Why is Anything Forbidden? – A Tribute to No Limit Records on Deathbomb Arc. The remaining bonus tracks are outtakes from various Psychon Troopers sessions. The track PTSGP is a collaboration between SGP and Psychon Troopers.

review

Psychon Mist do instrumental music where post-rock meets neo-classical meets experimental electronica. The titles are usually quirky ones like Behold My Flushroom! and Five is No Collar for an Engineer. Mostly a bit too experimental for me, but I do like Peep, whose music is usually on the darker side of lo-fi pop. There’s also Popsong which, despite the title, is more folk than pop. A good band, I’d like to hear more from them.
