Masking Tapeworm


Masking Tapeworm comes to Sublamental as a gift from Count G, who found this treasure while wandering through the Greek islands of the Southeastern Aegean.

On these magic islands of exile, music is elemental, like the surrounding sea and the wind that barrels down the rockhills, still inspiring the youthful soul with the most archaic of bodily yearnings – the desire to dance.

The affinity of spirit is obvious. Grooves, playfulness, experimentation, improvisation, the occasional baffling twist, but in this case with an explicit intention to get body and soul to move. This is music for sultry nights, for intoxicated spirits that bask in the hide-and-seek of sensual summer grooves.

That’s why the Count whisked off Masking Tapeworm and his other Greek friends to the studio for an instant karma release of this EP – 4 songs of twisted funky joy. DJs of the world rejoice!

Beyond this music and the one photo he has agreed to have released, Masking Tapeworm wishes to remain inscrutable.

Island locals murmur, with some sarcasm, that he lives surrounded by heaps of old tapes from which he elicits with worm-like compulsion whatever sound can be saved before the irredeemable decay.

Getting him to give an interview or say anything at all as to what he’s up to has proven fruitless. All he has allowed us to gather is that, on this quickly recorded session of 15 minutes of music, he is responsible for what he mischievously calls “key-chains and guitar spliffs” and that he is joined by his equally puzzling friends, King Kong of Korinth (“bass instincts”) and Moutro Monstrum (“doldrums”).

Remixed and Remastered by Count G in 2022.
