Rrrecord Rrreview for Rrrob (Mostly)

Continuing down the road of somewhat-obscuro music, from Victory at Sea, we arrive at Scanners. (Sorry for all the MySpace links, folks. Hey, INSTANT MUSIC!)

I have to tell you I really like this band and their CD, Violence is Golden.  The title doesn’t might suggest something a little darker and harder. And I think Pitchfork got it a bit wrong. The singer is a great mix of PJ Harvey and Siouxsie Sioux, which isn’t hard to imagine. The music is upfront and forceful, with an odd mid-disc slip into Sleeper-esque Britpop. The CD has all the necessary requirements: nice pacing, a competent balance of atmosphere and rock, a dash of sleaze, and real feeling. Plus, you can probably pick up a used copy pretty cheap; I saw one in my local indie store for $3.99.

Bottom line: Scanners . . . Violence is Golden . . . buy some TODAY!

  3. Thanks.  I now depart on a quest to find it.  Anything that invokes the glory of Souxsie is something I must have.
