15 Apr 2009 - New cassette release Did You Find It? on Object tapes makes the "BULL TONGUE TOP TEN #2" as picked and reviewed by Byron Coley & Thurston Moore!

what they say:

6. The Earjerk(Object Tapes) label, which has graced us with great dronage from the stalwart Drunjus collectif, has issued a tape on its Object Tapes by this dude Andy Futreal called Did You Find It?. Futreal had an earlier release on the Belgian label Slooow which was a slew of oud and tape machine improv skuggery. This jammerooni is even more oiled and and junk-toned and shows this cat to be a boss vibe sound skink."

Check out the release.
