About this item
"The spores of TG breaking out all over. An Alternative bloodline of electronic music; as if interbreeding of Chicago and Industrial resulted in sleeper cells entering a long gestation all over the world. Genesis' postal network as the carrier." 20 Jazz Funk Greats
And so Public Information splashes into 2013 with an almighty throb, pulse-tone generators at the ready. This is the debut record of malformed electronic-pop and modular fury from from Chicago two-piece Acteurs. From the chest-rattling kick of the opening track to the radon hailstorm of dub-techno epic "Freezing Fog" it's clear that the pair, Jeremy Lemos and Brian Case know their way around a mixing desk. Both have long, immaculate CVs with the cream of the US alternative scene, and here they stretch the studio to its limit.
Acteurs: proponents of bass to make systems quiver, drums that punch the gloom, electronics to scythe and screech into darkest night - a psychedelic overload. Acteurs: purveyors of pop-not-pop... Itchy Cluster tones... Frazzled Factory keys... LCD oscillations... NEU-motorik thrust... Argabright playgrounds... Repetition, repetition, repetition...
Dream an Acteurs dream. Sodium streetlights, grey smoke. Chromium staircases and black glass buildings. Acid rains. Cyberpunk racers. Dead TV channels. Amped-out brains. Come join their future-primitive world of stark and brutal groove, metallic avant-pop and precise mechanical funk.
