Crash Normal – “Your Body Got a Land” – [kill shaman]

Crash Normal have always been a duo, though they’ve not had the same line up over the last ten years. French guitar trash, at it’s finest. You like Sic Alps? They Mayyors, Alan Vega? Then lace up your Chanel booties, tie your gaultier scarf into a noose and get ready for some red light romping. There is no bass in this. Originally realeased on the european label, Born Bad. The track list on this Kill Shaman release varies, but is mostly confirmed. Beat it or eat it.

    “Crash Normal have always been a duo, though they???ve not had the same line up over the last ten years”

    Indeed ..
    and you should check what Vincent Bergier who used to be Crash Normal’s other half (during the period 2001/2010) have done recently :

    His new project is called The Box and he just released an awesome 7″ on Plastic Spoons Records.
    weird wild and totally wired …check it out on our Soundcloud .

    Reviewed last month in “The Styrofoam Drone” :

    “THE BOX is offering some twisted electronic stuff with their new 7??? on Plastic Spoons Records. For those who may not know, The Box is now the home of Vincent Bergier, formerly of Crash Normal.

    As far as we can tell, this new sound seems to fall somewhere into an evil synth-pop realm with plenty of cringe-worthy noise to keep your attention. Relentless A-side ???The Door??? will quickly give you an idea of what you???re going to endure. The track is oozing with a dark and sludgy synth hook that is broadened by clangorous guitars and tight, dagger-like licks that are spread throughout the track. Electronic percussion and creepy, shadowy vocals only help intensify the twisted nature of this challenging single. On the B-side, ???The Brain??? has a slightly different approach. This one has more of a bouncy, poppy edge going for it, but there???s still plenty of static-like noise crowding the air. The song begins to grow within the final two minutes, bringing us through a dense mix of relentless percussion, static noise, catchy bass lines and a metallic, swirled atmosphere to swallow it whole.

    If you???re looking for something to catch you off guard today, then start with this single. Listen to both sides right now! “
