this is an absolute masterpiece. had also the chance to see them live. they were actually a rock band using synthesizers and not an electronica , idm etc group.

ADD N TO X have a peculiar sound, a raw live rock band approach to electronics, they use an all analog synthesizers assault to create what I would consider to be "a rocklike feel". I became interested with their music with the lp "on the wire of our nerves"(where they sound more robotic than usual) -and continued on with "avant hard", "Add Insult to Injury", and "Take Me To Your Leader. "Avant Hard" possibly has the most dada -like aesthetic . I value their adventurous spirit in their forays with electronics present in their albums. Overall Add N to X have a mixture of 60 s 70s rock, with tinges of power-electro-nix.
