Moody but ultimately optimistic synth-pop and industrial pioneers Severed Heads originally released 'Since the Accident' in 1983, but here it stands, the reissued trophy of Medical Records. Severed Heads were famous for using loops to produce bona fide pop hits, although they never made it big enough for them to become ubiquitous: this record is a noisier, more abstract affair from the band, often featuring a mismatch of horrifying sounds, overtly distorted vocals and buzzsaw tactics. It's less melodic than the average Severed Heads record in places, but no less invigorating.
