5.0 out of 5 stars challenging, yet strangely fun, 29 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Bad Moon Rising (Audio CD)
What can I say, Ive owned this strangely anthemic work for two years, and I find that listening to this album actually makes me want to make music. I enjoy the layered clanging interplay between the two guitars, which seems like a logical progression from the intelligent punk of television. There are random patches of ambience, stooges tracks played backwars between songs, a inspired blend of hardcore, avant-garde, jangle and surf punk, the gradiation of atonal sounds, working from quiet, peaceful to white noise. The first few tracks, the intro, "brave men run (in my family)" "soceity is a hole" and " i love her all the time" are all classics in abstract noise, i cant think of any other band that makes sounds like this. The highlight of the album is surf-punk lydia lunch collaboration "death valley 69", a ode to charles manson. The only actual bad excursion is "satan is boring", a few minutes of nothing much whatsoever. You can hear the origins of the noise-pop and riot grrl styles coming into fruition here. This really is like aural possesion. The bonus tracks, from the flower EP actually significantly add to the overall quality, theyre more in the stoner rock style, the feminist chant of "flower", the intimate seduction of "halloween", and the spaceship exploding-cum-needle being lifted from turn-table ending.
