The Assassinations

Future Blasts From The Past

'All you need to make an album is a girl and a gun.' Jean Luc Godard. Sex, death, rock-n-roll. The Assassinations is a band, an album and an idea. Is there any more appropriate name for a rock'n'roll band during a decade in which suicide bombs, ethnic cleansing, and kidnapping have become like muzak on the TV news. The Assassinations is rock-n-roll that revels in the signs of the times. The band also has two asses in its name. The Assassinations is latest incarnation in the career of Berlin music legend and agent provocateur Ghazi Barakat. A mainstay of the city's underground music scene since the early 90s, Barakat was the founder and singer of garage noise outfit the Golden Showers. He also performed as part of 'Give Up', a Digital Hardcore-affiliated band with Shizuo's David Hammer and Cobra Killer's Annika Trost. The nine tracks on "Future Blasts From The Past", which is the first release on Barakat's new label Hashishin Records, were recorded between 2006 and 2007 with engineer and producer Tico Zamora at his Polytrash studios in Berlin. Barakat roped in a selection of able friends and conspirators: Tim Gane of Stereolab, Fred Bigot (aka French art-techno one man band Electronicat), Taylor Savvy, Nicole Morier from Electrocute and, most extravagantly a brass ensemble from the Himalayas (Hindulam Ensemble).
