Here it is, the debut fullength of the artist formerly known as Thorofon - and listening to this, the name change actually does make sense. While early Thorofon was rightout Power Electronics with the usual screaming job going on, the later releases showed an increasing use of angst pop structures and a development from "tracks" to "songs". This evolutionary mission seems now completed...
In a way, this sounds like the male companion to the music released by Geneviève Pasquier, which in fact, it really is. Both dig deep into the consciousness of industrial culture, with Geneviève Pasquier resounding the Cosey Fanni Tutti moments of TG or early Chris & Cosey and the Musick Wreckers now representing the song-structured male aspects of that band/era.
Unfortunately, to my taste, this is a picture vinyl, which renders it useless for DJ purposes, but the sound quality is still fine as is the production.
Nevertheless, from a release that deeply old school/retro, do not expect too much innovation, but 11 tracks of rock solid quality entertainment.
