Survival Sounds

Survival Sounds by Treponem Pal
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Juste Une Trace
Who knew these cyber-gunky French machine-metal cement-mixers were still around? Though only flamboyantly accented Marco Neves remains from their 1989 debut, this 2012 return might be their most banging ever. Imagine the Euro-perv inexorability of Leather Nun (whose "Gimme Gimme Gimme" Abba cover is referenced in road kvetch "Hard On") confounded by Adrian Sherwood agit-dub. Polyrhythmic marauders "Riot Dance" and “Subliminal Life” flow human blood through their appliances; “Drunk Waltz” staggers. Neves thanks "freedom fighters," too -- and in "Lowman Blues," gets guttural about guttersnipes.
