THE MAN WHOSE HEAD EXPANDED

Wherein octavion bassline is corrupted by Mr. White Crap slowing ‘things’ down, poisoned by jewel thieves stenciling d. kreuzen on th. B. Wall. ca. ’89 yet t’ come. Obligatorio Northern atmo-keys/perc. whap threatens dance potential. M.E.S. slap boxes with scum of earth & emerges victorious. Stop the (gar)rot(te).

Full marks x ½

LUDD GANG

Sorted for double-time housing assn. bass chords, lads? The Fall are not your T.O.T.P. Art Vivisection subjects –- blind b’lief in pet rocque x-periments will get u pilloried in th. mktplatz of sheep SLEEP TIGHT, kiddies, SUCCINCT END NEAR.
