Multi-instrumentalist and producer George Maund a.k.a. Big Effigy dropped his debut on Up It Up Records way back in the misty depths of 2009 under the name Pariah Qarey, and mighty nice it was too. Boasting a host of off-the-planet 808-inspired freakbeat and boom-bap, the album took a fishknife to the guts of electro hip-hop and dredged out the murky entrails to read its own version of the future. Three years on, and via a name change, the old sense of humour returns with this first free download-only offering The First Big Effigy Maxtipe. Cuts from Jan Hammer, The Now and Jacques Greene illustrate an oddball, generously proportioned (1 and a 1/2 hours) melting pot. Among Liverpool’s busiest bodies (he’s also a member of ambient experimentalists Ex-Easter Island Head and riff-rockers Mother Earth), the producer is also readying a 'juke/footwork' release under the moniker Baccalaureate.
