Biography

Surfing The Void
It's been three years since Klaxons burst onto the music scene, injecting a dazzling and much needed moment of rave hedonism into the midst of indie tedium with the truly original and enormously influential Mercury award-winning album Myths Of The Near Future.

Now they are back with the eagerly awaited follow up. Produced in LA by US rock legend Ross Robinson ... Read more in Amazon's Klaxons Store

5.0 out of 5 stars New Cross, Nu-Rave 3 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This trio are unashamed about their wish to sell millions and billions of records. From their days knocking around New Cross, SE London to their current gruelling tour schedule their brand of electro, punk and rave noise never failed to capture the imagination of their fans.

The catchiness of Atlantis to Interzone begs you to goose-step your way to the nearest record store -- fist in the air, floppy haircut wafting in the wind. Gravity's Rainbow made me wet my skinny jeans.

However I'm rather upset by the fact there's nothing on here that I haven't heard on their MySpace. They do so much more live, I was expecting more. Still...this is part one of three prog fans. There's more to come and I can't wait.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth Checking Out For Fans...Hell for Newbies 5 April 2007
By G. Marlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're unfamiliar with Klaxons, I wouldn't suggest this as an initial experience. While the good parts of their sound are evident in this early release, the work that Polydor did with them in the studio for their first full album obviously paid off. So if you're new, check out the album 'Myths of the Near Future,' which came out in January. All of the songs are much tighter and more palatable. Barring that, you'd do well to check out the first two tracks on this CD (Gravity's Rainbox and Atlantis to Interzone) or search for videos on YouTube to get a better idea of their current direction.

However, if you're a fan already and, like myself, are wringing your hands and wanting more, you'll find a snippet or two of goodness here to help hold you over until the next album. Unfortunately, the remixes don't bring much to the mix (no pun intended), and you'll probably just find yourself lusting for the more polished sound of Myths. Be that as it may, it's Klaxons - and for that I'm willing to forgive the muddy bass and tiring loops.

All in all, not a great standalone album for the new fan, but the world can always use more Klaxons.

The other reviewers slap this EP around, preferring the more conventional songs-with-weird-noises CDs, but I like this better for its jaunty, jagged fooling around. Fresher.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please enter a title for your review 27 Jan 2007
By pancake_repairman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
British music gets worse every month. I don't know how they keep the downward slide going, but they do. You'd think at some point the UK divisions of the major labels just wouldn't be able to find any bands in their country that were worse than the ones they'd already signed, the lameness would plateau, but they manage to keep finding worse and worse bands. Even if I tried to write the worst music I possibly could I couldn't write music that would be as offensive to my ears as this band. They make Swans, Whitehouse, Shellac and Nickelback seem like amateurs at the art of being unlistenable.
