9/10 Brett Staff review, 20 August 2009
Back in on Important is the reissue of a 1984 session in which the then-infants known as Coil and The New Blockaders collaborated, along with Vortex Campaign who apparently initiated the whole project. Originally issued on cassette then reissued on CD twenty years later, The Melancholy Mad Tenant then got a vinyl press last year only to sell out pretty much before anyone even knew it existed. Onward to the present day where Important have done the decent thing and pressed a few more, this time on clear 180g vinyl. Musically it's quite a remarkable release and, for all its noisily industrial avant garde tendencies, a highly listenable one. For me these drones, whistles and rattles sound like the blowing of foghorns, the turning of wheels and the screeching of brakes, evoking some sort of empty post-industrial world where the machines we've set in motion continue without us, unknowingly serving absolutely no-one. A wonderful and intriguing peek into the pasts of two legendary bands.
