while we're here though we can talk about how exciting the new album is, and also how exciting the reissues are gonna be of the early, nearly impossible to find flying nun stuff.

New Zealander Michael Morley (notably a member of The Dead C) is set to drop his latest work with his solo project Gate. Saturday Night Fever is a reinterpretation of the music from the movie of that name, expanding on the ideas about dance music that Morley established on Gate’s 2010 LP A Republic of Sadness. As fellow noise-guy-turned-dance-enthusiast Pete Swanson puts it: “The resulting album sounds like Morley's pulling out some heaping doses of the hermit boogie and Otago funk and stretching it into some sort of Basinskian disintegration loop gone Bernard Bonnier zonked mutant scene.” The opening track from Saturday Night Fever, a beast of a piece called “Asset,” starts out as a pseudo-disco track with sampled horns and turns into something more like what you’d expect from the hands behind the feedback-drenched and claustrophobic songs of The Dead C. Throw this onto your noise show after-party playlist because it’s the coolest disco is ever going to get.

« WE DON’T KNOW ANYMORE »
THIS IS THE LAST SENTENCE BRUCE RUSSELL SAID AT THE VERY END ON THEIR PARISIAN CONCERT. WE WERE ON 2018. THEY WERE FLYING TO PARIS ONLY FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THIRTY YEARS. AND HE’S RIGHT! WE DON’T KNOW ANYMORE, SO WE CAN START ONCE MORE EVERYTHING WE LOVE, EVERYTHING WE WANT TO. THERE’RE NO TRADE AROUND HERE! LET’S HEARD THIS PERFECT BALANCE SOUND THEY’D CREATE, BETWEEN ROCK AND EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC. BETWEEN PSYCHEDELIC TRIP AND SPEED LO-FI. EVERYTHING BECOMES HISTORICAL WITH THEM. THIS TRIO IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT KULT ROCK BAND FROM 3 DECADES TO NOWADAYS.. THEY COMES FROM NEW ZEALAND. HAVE YOU ALREADY BEEN THERE? THIS LAND IS REALLY FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD AND ALL IT GOES WITH THE TERRITORY. THE DEAD C REPRESENT THE MISSING LINK BETWEEN SONIC YOUTH AND CIA DEBUTANTE; BETWEEN RALLIZES DÉNUDÉS AND WOLF EYES. HOT STEPPER MUSIC. PURE SPEEDBALL SOUNDS. ALL THE 40 RELEASES SINCE THEY WERE CALLED « THE DEAD SEE » IN 1987 THEY’VE BROUGHT TO US ‘TILL NOW IS UNCOMPROMISING. SO WELCOME FLASH FUCKERS!

^ That's not an online review, those are the liner notes.
