Нассатьна мир ["Piss On The World"] is a Russian doll of dystopian sci-fi industrial-synth mythologies. The premise is: on the last day of 1987 an unidentified numerology-obsessed time-traveller recorded five songs of cathode-blasted Cold War cold wave out of misanthropic desperation at having become locked in a time loop, reliving the same day, unable to die. Modeling his music on esoteric Polish art group Oneiron, he released the album via vanguard underground outpost PSI, then disappeared, fate unknown.
The music’s actual creator, мхи и лишайники [Mosses & Lichens], tracked the album in two days on New Year's Eve 2018, using battered synthesizers, drum machines, and a 4-track at the home of Oneiron’s founder Andrzej Urbanowicz, who passed away in 2011. The songs sound appropriately trapped in time, tape-hazed and grey-scale, minimal-wave relics scavenged from some rusted basement dimensional gateway. Occasionally a stray voice cut through the purgatory smog (“your move, creep”) but the bulk of it seethes in psychic malaise, Eastern bloc electronics blasted from and for the void.
