    "Tarkamt is a project by Cairene musician Cherif El Masri. He’s an Egyptian guitar player, a member of The Invisible Hands (with Alan Bishop), and has been a member of Nadah El Shazly’s live band - but that won’t provide much in the way of preparation for his solo debut as Tarkamt. Firstly, obviously, Live At The Necropolis ain’t no live album. It’s a trippy journey through noise, jazz, beats, psychedelia… all sorts really, jammed together into an oddly user-friendly gumbo. There’s a guest appearance from singer Sammy Sayed on two tracks, plus Alan Bishop contributes a scarring and grinding alto sax solo to ‘Et Sic Infinitum’, which starts its life as a cosy motorik groover before Alan comes along and tears it all apart. ‘Churning The Ocean of Milk’ is a real oddity: a Merzbow-ian deep noise track, whirring through an oblivion of static for seven mental minutes. A SimpleText computer voice sings along to another krauty rocker on ‘Death Takes A Vacation’, El Masri swapping shards of jagged noise into a position where a guitar solo clearly would’ve otherwise been. The spiralling psych wig out of ‘The Harbinger’ closes the album, with El Masri finally slipping into a lead vocalist role and stretching out for a finale. The drum machines across the record lend the persistent pulses a eery robotic tone, while there’s a constant fuzz behind every track, leaving almost no spare space anywhere on the record. There are shards of traditional psychedelia in the guitar twangs, and it often grooves, but Live At The Necropolis is a psychedelic kraut noise outing not quite like anything you’ve heard before."
