Product Notes

Dark moody songs with heavy bass, jungle drums with flourishes of psychedelic guitar complimented by dissonant keyboard riffs sounding strangely beautiful In the tradition of The Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth, Purple Analogue weaves shimmering dissonant sounds & psychedelic guitar tracers in a hypno-pop explosion of subliminal brain candy. From the first strident chords on 'Slowdive', the listener is catapulted on an eerie orchestral ride admidst nocturnal orgies on the planet Neptune. Some songs have a retro 80's influence hence comparisons to Joy Division, The Cure & Soft Cell. By contrast, other songs evoke Trip-Hop & quasi-industrial. The closing track, Zen Death, is an apocalyptic poem recited over a heavy drum loop--one review compared it to a 90's equivalent of 'The End' by The Doors. The album is surely dark with ample metaphors of death yet the lyrics are delivered with humorous irony on the verge of the new millinium. The lead singer, James Paris, is a West Coast poet & enignmatic figure. The cover of 'Kill The Machine' jacket depicts a fluorescent handgun motif in the style of Andy Warhol. POW! ''Hey Joe...where you goin' with that Day-Glo gun in your hand?'' Nancy In Plastic says hello from the great beyond.
