Album Review

Cicciolina Holocaust / Sermonizer [coll] – [Forced Nostalgia]

cinder   6/29/2011   12-inch, A Library

Experimental electronics from the early 1980s.?? Korgs, synthesizers, effect pedals, drum machines, etc.?? Even with these instruments, this is no where near the 80s dance sound you’re imanging.?? Darker, thumpier sounds take on the A side (Ciccoline Holocost).?? Very similar to instrumental Throbbing Gristle.?? Industrial and hard in thought, but there’s a delicate approach to it.?? Italians!?? Side B (Sermonizer) brings the ‘found objects’ sound to a few tracks.?? The first like jangling bamboo sticks.?? The second is almost like a B movie horror suspense track, which also rises again on the third track.?? Lots of the high pitched “weeeeeohhhh” electronics.?? Very nice!?? Last track for some suggestive love makins’.??
