Total Control

Melbourne, Australia

1) Somewhere in the breeding patterns of the 80s noise punk movements and the synth head movement birthed the synth punks Total Control. Drawing influence from what seems Futuristik, Screamers, and Perhaps Devo, they bring to the table a crunched up no wave dancefloor numbers. Sawtooth leads over frantic punk beats interloping into a obnoxious yet capturing piece. The building progressive Kraftwerk leads into chip-tune solos like a busted cartage game. Paranoid video is a track you would find on the mixtape of some rebelious adolescent from a post apocalyptic timeline. (by Alex Auclair)

Formed in Melbourne and featuring members of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Straightjacket Nation, UV Race.

2) Total Control was a French punk band in the 90’s.

3) Total Control is an eurodance act from Germany.

    New album still isn't better than "Carpet Rash" but it's still a fucking belter record. Yes "Black Spring".

    The first thing that came to mind was they could have The Smiths in their influence, and a hint of Air

    I'd mention Suicide as an influence for this band. "See More Glasses" tune does not let me in doubt. Great band, as well as The Soft Moon, I will take a long time to stop listening to.

    new album is an interesting mix of things. i feel likes its either good or bad. some elements are really interesting and fresh and at some points it sounds just like typical derivitive garage or post punk.

    I really wish the new record was more like Henge Beat. But, can't complain. It's not bad. Also husarzX, I have a Total Abuse tape from like, 2010. Good band.

    Typical System is easily one the best new albums I've heard this year

    "if carpet rash was a song that lasted for the duration of infinity i still wouldnt get sick of it. why listen to anything else" [2] the only real issue i have is that Henge Beat is pretty good as an album but Carpet Rash is so fucking amazing that everything else is weaker in comparison.
