Every time this hits the deck Mike starts screaming “SY with Lee Ranaldo!” at every dim corner of the room. I have to agree with our resident arch-drude of indie rock, 'Politico' sounds a great deal like early Yoof with that more poetic NY noisenik at the mic. He reminds me a lot of Robert Pollard too and even the guy from Hawkwind gets a shout out! This single is amazing I reckon, recorded in 1979 so you get churning new wave punk built from banks of mad wiry guitars, tub-thumping drums and a fizzing stoned wasp synth. It's one of those complete outsider tracks that references the epic madness of say, the Sensational Alex Harvey Band with the burgeoning aggression and determined off-kilter nihilism of No Wave. A stone cold classic then! The flip of this De Stijl sponsored “excavation” is a glorious pulsing synth-led instrumental that would fit really nicely into a set of exploratory cult '70s German sounds. Reminding me a lot of early Kraftwerk or Faust's more reflective moments, it is a beautiful little tune in its own right carrying a vibe that suggests an unbridled optimism flowering from the scorched ground-zero of a dystopian nightmare. A curious beauty, worth the steep price, believe me!
