The Assistant is Oliver Cherer. “Gristleizer” is the just released 12. The Delusions of Adequacy (thanks) review of the track had this to say about “Gristleizer”: “…certainly a leap away from the more playful BBC Radiophonic Orchestra stylings of The Assistant’s first release. Combining shadowy mechanised-voodoo percussion with swarming insect synth sounds, there are strong echoes of the industrial clank of Throbbing Gristle and the sci-fi horror scores of John Carpenter films in the track’s hypnotic entrancement…”
The Assistant appears on the Polytechnic Youth label established in 2014 to release music that is: “library sounds, electronic experiments in kosmische, primitive electronics and as a soundtrack to physical education – a micro label for vinyl heads”.
