The Tongue Gets Rotten

"Totally mind-blowing new three-track EP, privately issued by Andrew Paine’s Sonic Oyster imprint that sees Youngs and Paine at some kind of high-energy peak, with a tribute to UK anarcho groups like Crass, Flux Of Pink Indians, Discharge et al cut with the aggressive a-formalism of Throbbing Gristle: the opening “Tomorrow’s Story” is hands-down the wildest vocal performance of Richard’s career, with a heady use of ring modulation coming over like a Dalek fronting Crass, with every line a negative statement, an absolute refusal. The music is amazing, with Paine holding down massively dunderhead one-note bass solos and punked electronics and as the EP unfolds the music becomes even more aggressive, with the closing “Wisdom” coming over like Discharge’s “State Violence State Control” as played by Tampax. Indeed, this is the crudest, wildest, nastiest refusenik Industrial punk of either players’ back catalogue, a stunning slab of righteously enraged avant-thug muscle that just keeps on keeping on. A non-stop addition to the VT turntable this week, in a run of only 250 copies of which 50 are part of an exclusive VT sub-edition personally autographed by both Youngs and Paine. Seriously, you need to hear this: highest possible recommendation!" Volcanic Tongue

We’ve got questions for this so-called progress.
We do not offer this to you for your excitement.
This is our attitude, another fine clearance.
No place for Masters, there are no benefits.
It’s just an illusion to keep us in our places.”
