There is but one thing baffling me about 70 Gwen Party: the utter lack of interest of the world.
They have brought forth sounds and songs of riveting beauty and grating harshness, often both at the same time: messages from a distant land somewhere situated close to all those long lost 23 unrecorded treasures of Pink Floyd fronted by Syd Barrett, which the world will never know, and Loveless bordering on the back side, with a good dash of industrial nihilism, so they will never be mistaken for something sweet. Listen to the seven-inch-version of Knee Deep in Evil. It sounds like all the figments of imagination populating one of the darker paintings of Hieronymus Bosch come to aural life: a process of painful genesis, at 2:15 you have breakbeats sounding like syncopated submachine guns being fired. In 1994 I was perusing the small print adverts in a discarded copy of the NME and finally saw a hint where to get their records after having pestered record dealers all over Berlin for their material. I bought them mail order from the artist (Victor N'Dip) himself. Actually if i remember correctly he and his mate hailed from Slough. Even that the venerable John Peel knew what he was talking about when admonishing his listeners to give them a go did not help them to the exposure they would have deserved. Yeah, people proud of their musical sensibilities prefer to listen to the mature Nick Cave (i.e. material from his current artistic phase).

Most of what 70 Gwen Party published could be released at any time and it will still appear to be modern, like Blind Willie McTell or the Skatalites cannot help but being unable to sound dated.
Come on, be brave, these guys were INDEPENDENT, not the Teenage Fanclub.
