Biography

Xiu Xiu was born on a dance floor, arriving alone at the club and going home alone from the club.

That night the first Xiu Xiu song, Jennifer Lopez, was recorded. Its line, “is it tough to watch, Friday after Friday!?,” began what Xiu Xiu was going to try to say. The songs would always be about specific events in the personal lives of the band, the people close to them, and ... Read more in Amazon's Xiu Xiu Store

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Feb 2014
Format: Audio CD
Having found the music of Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart a challenging feast over the years that usually rewarded greatly with dedicated perseverance this reviewer has now finally come close to throwing the towel in with the release of "Angel Guts-Red Classroom". There should always be an avant garde poking and prodding the mainstream. It should be unsettling, ominous and subversive. What it shouldn't do is take whatever good the band has performed in truly strong albums like "Dear God, I Hate Myself" and cast it all aside for grating painful noise binges punctuated by chainsaws on the title track "Red Classroom", frankly cringe worthy lyrical monstrosities like "Black Dick" and the unintentionally hilarious nonsense of "El Naco".

Shades of the best of Xiu Xiu are to be found in some of the tracks here not least the powerful "Adult Friends" and the haunting "Blind Melon". Nevertheless it is time for a close confidant of this artist to take him to one side and urge that he suppresses the manic need to shock and deconstruct. In addition he needs to be firmly told that this no longer sounds avant garde, its actually all a bit pompous and pretentious. Coming on the back of the truly terrible covers album "Nina" a radical rethink is in order.

And it is my personal favourite. It sounds a bit more cinematic / nightmare-ish maybe rather than strictly personal, but the songs are very strong, the sounds excellent and as a whole the album holds really well.
