I heard the debut Factory Floor 7" a while back and was kinda impressed by their densely atmospheric & icy new wave. They've got a new 12" jobber out called the 'Planning Application' EP and they've been delving well deep into the esoteric vaults of the post-punk era. On the startlingly percussive & brittle 'Taxidermist', they've kinda melded Killing Joke & lost 4AD spartans In Camera into a chilling, tribal onslaught with the most grumpy, tuneless bass throbs, a tentative, searching organ line ala New Order and quietly intoned monotone vocals. 'Post is Here' is coming more from the Pop Group/Artery/Bauhaus school of post dub atmospherics and discordant guitar shards, rattling percussion and snaky effects making an extremely authentic pastiche of the era's forgotten fringe pioneers. Side 2 goes from echo laden Martin Hannett drums underpinned with hypnotic aquatic bass shapes to a Wire-y maelstrom of scratchy guitar. And there's more but no time to tell. A brilliant homage, the production's amazing. I really like the dismbodied track 4 with vocals from Nik Void which sounds like Joy Division crossed with Meanwhile Back in Communist Russia! It's a grand EP is this and if yr in thrall to those dark days, then Factory Floor are your new fave band. Well art-rock.............
