British Electronica mainstay/Illicit Recordings boss Deadly Avenger drops his new LP via Burning Witches Records (All Of Them Witches, BurningTapes). I Am Godzilla, You Are Japan is - yep - a tribute to Gojira, and there is a definite stomp-all-over-your-car vibe to these twelve punishing instrumentals. Largely built from big-beat 808s and throbbing electro basslines, this is a record of big dumb fun.

8/10 Jamie Staff review, 19 June 2018

Uh, OK, wow. Big, throbbing and beat-y it certainly is -- as befits a tribute to Gojira, the very first film in the Godzilla franchise -- with Deadly Avenger (Damon Baxter) at the helm of an array of 808’s ready to stomp all over our faces. 'I Am Godzilla, You Are Japan' re-imagines the not-so-delicate footsteps of the famous, fabled lizard (I think) giant creature from way back in the ‘50s in Japan. I haven’t seen the film either but you get the gist… People are obsessed with Japan , aren’t they? And scary monsters. *Insert something about the environmental catastrophes beset upon our planet and us all by mankind, past present and future*

It’s kinda apposite then that ‘Baxter’ set his machines to ‘Destroy!’ mode for this record (clear vinyl with pink splatter, obviously). Pummeling electro basslines. Reminds me of all those moments that I wanted to hurt somebody (nearly every day, for the last who-knows-how-long) but we can all laugh about those times now, right? (Nervous laugh) But I’m really only hurting myself, obviously. And breathe. Talking of which, there’s a really nice Tangerine Dream-y moment roughly a third of the way in (can’t see tracks, the vinyl’s a stupid colour*) which brought back the temporary soothe. Anyway, exciting and exhilarating stuff that I might / might not listen to again, one day. Kinda deserves an ‘8’ (for bigness and ambition and Design, if nothing else). Comes with a beautifully printed insert and free download card. Bonus.

*Stop the press, the track is called ‘See You In Montauk’. Not if I see him first, etc etc.
