David Thrussell - The Plastic Wars (Part 1)

I love his voice, even if it's a voice not meant to be loved, even if we are supposed to scorn. It feels a lot older than it is; I always have to remind myself that this isn't some lost gem from the 70s, some weirdo psych nugget, some lost classic that crept under the radar. It's just not meant for those times. I guess it's broadly in the genre of things like The Tape Beatles or Negativland except... it's nothing like them, doesn't feel remotely punk, or DIY; doesn't seem confrontational or overt. It's clearly meant for something but it seems like a gentle reminder of how things are and what they could be.
