Reviews

Well known hysterically un-funny ‘seven piece San Franciscan’ group turn to the losers way out (see Clock DVA, Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, etc. etc. etc….) of daaaance music maaaan.  Perhaps an attempt at subversion, but far too close to the Jacksons than is necessary my dears.  A few ingenious twists of the knife does not a true killer make. Loud derisive screams of “COMPROMISE” should follow it as you throw it out of your window.
