NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND
PROMO
Own Label

An oddity, being a three track Industrial promo, from a fairly enigmatic quarter. They’re in negative on the sleeve but they have names, do Pumuki, Guigher, MdA and Greco, and they’re from Spain.

‘Game’ is well creepy. They’re singing in English and you get to hear them promising someone a spectacularly sordid time, like an unhinged serial perv who is tricking someone into coming along to satisfy his friends as well. Musically it’s so spruce it has that evil, sour but fluid soundtrack sensibility and it’s cruel, crude, and dynamic. ‘Greed’ swivels grittily with a musical emphasis where the first rotated on a vocal spit. You can see why they’re more rock based than Industrial, the synth bleeping mildly behind the coarse riffing and there’s a weird cascade in the middle then an abrupt, nervy end. ‘War’ is more metallic in its percussion and with a seething dance spurt and I admit I thought he was bravely shouting, ‘red, full arse’, but it’s ‘are you ready for this?’ A different thing altogether. It’s very up in its shuttling around and bound to claw at heads in clubs.

Although the lyrics come over as rather unpleasant, I assume it’s part of a bigger picture, as though these are characters ranting, and it’s a bold sound that’s very well executed. Not my sort of thing, but you club types, what are you like?
