"Fibo-Trespo is the project of DJ/multi-instrumentalist Sindre Bjerga from Stavanger/Norway (owner of the Gold Soundz label and zine), mainly as a duo with Kjetil D. Brandsdal. Together they explored different subgenres of experimental music, from field recordings via music concrète to improv and back, on several tapes and 7''s and a very special sort of rock-deconstruction on their first LP (on Smalltown Supersound), which at the same time contained already less improvisation, more electronics, samples, electric toys. This direction which is further developed on this 7". A hoax. A scam. A phony is the first Fibo-Trespo record Bjerga released together with Andres Gjerde (owner of the Humbug label). Side A contains a more ambient piece which consists of melancholic organ melodies mixed with miniatures on a toy-piano and a wild oscilloscope sounds like a homemade scifi-soundtrack in the vein of Forbidden Planet. Side B begins as a thick, multi-layered and heavily distorted drone piece -- which lets you know how a jam-session between the vibracathedral orchestra with Tony Conrad could sound like -- and ends in abstract, celestial reverb. Those two very different sides illustrates the eclecticism inside the cosmos of Fibo-Trespo's homemade weirdness which sometimes isn't that far away from the genius of early Royal Trux."
