about

Multipurpose Saws was the fourth release on the Musicus Phÿcus label, following “brainmower”, “Sonderkommando Now!” and Zaraza's “Slavic Blasphemy”. It was released in June 1997 (MPCD 972) in an edition of 666 numbered copies. The CD case included “one CD containing sound and one multipurpose saw blade, suitable for most disarticulation work”. It was a compilation of the principle projects of several Phÿcus contributors, and was conceived as a way to say thanks for their contributions. The artwork was created by BruSex. The saw blade was designed by a friend of Bill Abominog. The original liner notes follow, more information can be found by clicking the "info" for each track.

During the course of its existence so far, nearly 50 people have made musical contributions to to various Phÿcus releases and live performances, most of whom also record music by themselves and with other groups. This CD presents some of the other faces of these Phÿcus members, although this is definitely not a “side-project” compilation. For most of the people appearing on this CD, Phÿcus is their “side-project”, however the music contained herein shows many similarities with the Phÿcus sound: extreme, dark and apocalyptic.
