I received this pair of limited one-of-a-kind mail art postcards from Ed (aka Sluggisha Tapes, aka "the reason I discovered Florida's noise scene in the first place") in August of last year.
There was no return address or insignia on either of them, so for a few weeks it remained a mystery as to who had sent them. (I found out when Ed asked if I had gotten them yet)
The postcards are photographs of statues of Mr. Peanut and Popeye at a used car place in Inverness, FL. There may be more characters there, and if there are. I hope Ed returns and does another series of postcards about them!
I have a bunch of other postcards from Ed (all one-of-a-kind), but I'll have to search for them again in the meantime...
I started recording "noise music" in early 2004, completely unaware of any "scenes" or other individuals doing this sort of thing. A lot of lo-fi recordings on a portable tape player, oftentimes guitar or bass feedback drone and delay.
