Nubile – Spyral Totem Toler Than East Poll 7″

When you compare Nubile’s self-titled 7“ to its 1984 follow-up „Spyral Totem Toler Than East Poll“ (wow, what a name for a 7“), it comes across as almost easy listening. On this 7“ they really seem to enjoy going off the deep end: dark, slow, ominous dirges with atonal bass and guitars, interspersed with noisy outbursts of… what?

This 7“ was their first release on Wechselbalg Syndicate, where they would go on to release a load of EPs.

If I only knew what the title meant!

    I think ‚toler‘ is Engrish for „taller“, so that it would clear the title up somehow. „Tranceyse Discow Veryall“ sounds even more confusing for me :D

    But what about East Poll?

    Oh yeah, the poll. I understood ‚pole‘ (as in a banner). Now I‘m checking Wordreference and ‚poll‘ is only for votations. I guess it’s Engrish for ‚pole‘. Otherwise, you couldn‘t compare heights between a totem (a spyral one) and a votation result, hahaha. Not that it’s much clearer now, I guess. But I still think Tranceyse Discow Veryall is more cryptic :D

    I think it’s a geographic term. Must refer to Earth’s East Pole!
