Band: PIANO WIRE
Who/home: new band formed by Andy Huxley and Sym Gharial from the ashes of barbed wire noise rockers The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster based in London…
Track: I’LL KILL YOU – from their mini-debut 8-track/ 24 minutes album ‘The Genius Of The Crowd’ named after a Charles Bukowski poem !
Score: As someone described brilliantly, Huxley & Gharial used to fabricate ‘dark psychosis
rock‘ back then. Today they still create ‘dark psychosis rock’ but this time it sounds like coming from their soul, not from the aftermath of taking too many illegal substances.
‘I’ll Kill You’ is definitely not a love song, a troubled soul is badly hurt and somebody
is seeking painful revenge. Yet the overall tenebrous colored sonic drive is strangely catching and caused immediately repeats on my earphones. The clenched rhythm,
the vicious chorus and the threatening vocals are the keys to this new, rad score.
Goodbye 80s Matchbox, hello Piano Wire.
Here’s the excellent mini-album ‘The Genius Of The Crowd’ in full – don’t be afraid…
