ARMY - "INSULAR TRANSCRIPT"
If there is one band out there that carries the pennant of prolific eccentricity and uncompromised authenticity it’s GERMAN ARMY. After more than 50 albums released in a span of just 6 years, the mysterious Californian entity – though still close to its initial sonic trademark – never ceases to amaze and to beguile. On Insular Transcript tribal industrial beats flirt with tropical sun drenched melodies, lavish post-punk bass lines and the typical echo-laden crooner vocals, thus creating a Yin-Yang of straight forward mechanic amnesia and longing late-night reminiscence. GERMAN ARMY is the unchallenged heir to the throne of the 80s industrial tape scene and their monumental opus definitely ranks on the same level of importance as those of CABARET VOLTAIRE, NOCTURNAL EMISSIONS and THROBBING GRISTLE.
