Disco Inferno…..finally!!!

WE WRITE THE AURAL DUSTBIN BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF RECORDS- MANY MANY OF WHICH WE FEEL NEVER GOT THEIR DUE RESPECT OR DESERVED SUCCESS.   THIS DOES NOT MAKE THIS MUSIC “PRECIOUS”, NOR DOES IT MAKE US “COOL” BECAUSE WE LISTEN TO ‘UNDERGROUND’ MUSIC.  THE TRUTH IS, WE’RE CONTINUALLY SICKENED THAT COMMERCE USUALLY COMES BEFORE CREATIVITY TIME AND TIME AGAIN.  WE’RE SADDENED THAT INNOVATORS IN MUSIC (‘POP’ MUSIC OR OTHERWISE) ARE CRUSHED BENEATH THE WEIGHT OF OBSCURITY AND COMMERCIAL OBLIVION, FAILING TO SELL MILLIONS (or even thousands) OF COPIES OF WORK THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS IN THEIR TIME.  OUR LIST OF DISCS TO CHAMPION HERE FAR EXCEEDS THE TIME OR ENERGY WE HAVE RIGHT NOW TO DEVOTE TO WRITING ABOUT ALL OF THEM.

SO, IMAGINE OUR SURPRISE AND DELIGHT  TO HAVE SEEN NOT ONE BUT TWO ARTICLES RECENTLY ON DISCO INFERNO: ONE OF THE MORE INNOVATIVE, DISTURBING, BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL BANDS TO HAVE SUFFERED A CRUEL FATE TRYING TO SUCCEED IN BRITIAN IN THE 1990’S.  A NEW COMPILATION, THE 5 E.P.s, HAS BEEN RELEASED BY ONE LITTLE INDIAN RECORDS, HOPEFULLY BRINGING WITH IT A NEW GENERATION OF FANS.  WE’RE SUGGESTING BEGINNING WITH A LISTEN TO IN DEBT, A COLLECTION OF THEIR EARLY SINGLES, BEFORE VENTURING ON TO THE TRULY MIND/EAR-BENDING ALBUMS TECHNICOLOUR AND DI GO POP.

CALL US LAZY, BUT WE FEEL THERE’S NO NEED TO BE REDUNDANT WHEN YOU CAN READ MUCH MORE IN DEPTH ABOUT D.I. IN THE AFOREMENTIONED ARTICLES, WHICH CAN BE FOUND HERE:
