James "Prostitutes" Donadio is back this week with another 12" of his weird broken techno filth on Night School. This one comes with a sticker that's even more unsavoury than the band name - it says "PROSTITUTES - true cleveland underground" on it and then there's a crude doodle of a face being chloroformed. Charming.
Bit of a shame really, because these childish shock tactics distract from the fact that Donadio is actually making pretty decent music. There are five tracks here which stick to his usual skeletally pummelling style of hard, sparse beats, broken, distorted electronic loops and harsh industrial atmospherics. 'Hate's In The City' is particularly fun, like an acid house pinata spilling its guts all over a broken loopstation. If you like your grimy future-electronics with a side order of shock-value, this is the record for you.
Editor's note: it has been pointed out to us that the "crude doodle" is artwork from a student protest poster from the Paris '68 revolts and is intended as a reference to not being overcome by the powers that be.
