THE PICKLE FACTORY is Karla Borecky and Scott Foust from the IDEA FIRE COMPANY plus long-time collab-orator Mike Popovich. They were actice in the mid- to late-1990s and released the album »Our Pledge« on SWILL RADIO at the time. »Our Anthems« was recorded in 1996 but remained unreleased until now. The sound is somewhat similar to IFCO, although within at least some sort of a song structure. The 12 pieces on the LP present themes and sketches of atmospheric musical beauty created by synths, haunting voices and guitars with percussive elements, minimal rhythms and, of course some radio static! All the pieces on this lp are anthems indeed, the soundtrack for staring at random stuff and thinking you're in the middle of slow motion! Simple beauty, like all or most of the work by the troupes gathered around the house of Karla Borecky and Scott Foust, who won't be on a photo without sunglasses, much like Cash would always wear black i guess, with that difference that Foust only wears neon yellow. Give em some air, this is seriously a beautiful record!« (Dennis Tyfus). Cover artwork by Karla Borecky. Edition of 300 copies. Recommended! Twisted Knister.
