A friend and I recently witnessed this Copenhagen based duo perform in an art space in Bradford where over a backdrop of crude power electronics, one of the pair was dunking his head into a bucket of water with a hydrophone stuffed down his gob, choking, gagging and retching, creating an almighty racket much to the bewilderment of the passing grannies with their shopping peeping through the windows. The kids that had been dragged along with their parents were promptly escorted outside, faces looking somewhat disturbed; much to our amusement while the sound of early Prurient records being flushed down the bog by the school bully blazed from the speakers.
Loke Rahbek (Lust For Youth, Var, Croatian Amor) and Christian Stadsgaard are behind the Posh Isolation label and have previously released an album on Alter; the excellent ‘First Burning Attraction’. Here they are with a smaller offering in the form of the ‘Patterns Of Penetration’ 7”. Up on the A-side is ‘Penis Corset’ (ouch!) which sounds as nasty as the name suggests. Over a simple, distorted industrial rhythmic backbone, overblown synths and feedback wail around primal vocal grunting where the odd phrase is decipherable making me presume the lyrics are S&M themed. All pretty harsh and in your face.
Over on the B-side ‘Patterns of Penetration’ things are somewhat calmer heading into dark analogue tape noise, a basic yet effective two note synth line and spoken vocals. It certainly recalls and is equally as powerful as some of Prurient’s work along similar lines.
This should come with an oldskoool ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker. Those things were really useful when buying hip-hop records to listen to on my walkman while doing my paper round. It was so much easier to find offensive records that way, looking at the pretty sleeve of this 7” you’d never know the tales of sexual deviancy hidden within it’s grooves.
