Latest report just in from the warped scientists down at the Research Reactor Corp.! The future…..it’s looking grim.
The earth is rotting under the weight of toxic sludge, global companies are paying research institutes to provide environmental reports, governments are sticking their fingers in their ears and singing “la la la.” This isn’t some dystopian nightmare, it’s 2020!!
Taking cues from Devo, Total Control, and Adult Swim, this is an album of irreverent and scuzzy garage inflected punk that reminds me of Saturday mornings as a kid flicking TV channels between Rage music videos and the cartoons. But everything seems more blown out, more nightmarish.
If the LP is to the run of live shows what an Annual report is to a series of corporate meetings, then “The Collected Findings…” is an ideal companion to the sweaty, safety-vest donning gigs of the last while! -Mitch
