Bruno & The Outrageous Methods Of Presentation
"Bristol’s Bruno Wilkinson and his Outrageous Methods of Presentation. While we’re generally more about tag scouring when on Bandcamp, this kid was brought to our attention through a great Bandcamp Daily feature and we’re very glad he was. You wouldn’t expect the average 13-year-old to have a recording project, much less one so utterly dedicated to the untarnished vision of outsider art. Wilkinson is not f*ck*ng around, this is not teeny bopper pop punk: this is crazed, brilliant, minimalist experimental post-punk. If Mark E. Smith, Captain Beefhart, and Kim Fowley were all raised from the grave by a tweaking necromancer and charged to raise a babe from infancy to teenhood, you might get something akin to Bruno Wilkinson. His catalog is already massive and it’s difficult to say where exactly to start, but we’ll go with This Is Real Now, as it does include his two-part ‘mission statement’ and “Breathe for Me”, which is the #1 on the UK Singles Chart in the dimension where unhinged heroin den dance hits are the public’s greatest demand. Immensely promising talent." Counterzine
