ISS – “Alles 3rd Gut” LP
The North Caroliner duo who manipulate found sound and sampled recordings, recycling them into their own exciting new compositions. Great fun because not only do you find yourself playing spot-the-sample (Flux Of Pink Indians, SSD, Rudimentary Peni, Poison Idea, Johny Rotten, Pussy Galore) but there is also some highly creative song-crafting going on here. ‘Experimental’ is a description you should approach with caution, often cold and difficult – whereas this is anything but. An inventive hardcore record, with clever lyrics and a punk as fuck attitude – symbolically, the front cover features Einstürzende Neubauten; the back cover features Beastie Boys’ Pollywog Stew.
