Artist: THOUGHT BROADCAST
Title: Social Acid
Format: Cass
Label: Personnel
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
“Shuffling, hidden and subterranean electronics.
On “Social Acid” the musical element of TB is stripped away further and the underlying machinery shows through even more. This recording continues the dark hallucinations of classic noise and industrial to unparalleled heights of depersonalization.
The most remarkable thing about TB, and what comprises such a huge part of his sound, is the perfectly distorted and tape coated production. This is music that exists at the forefront of an underground lineage but still bears the fidelity of some of the earliest 80s tape experiments in the genre--wherein the difference between matter and sound became obscured.
The attitude expressed here could be considered post-punk in the sense of this being the inevitable end of where punk music would have lead in a perpetual urban dystopia. Once the final transformation takes place you can barely distinguish the dissonant echoes of guitar, vocals and everyday rhythms of rock n roll music.
It is a rare occasion that TB steps from the shadows, but when he does its always the work that does the speaking. "Social Acid" raises the standard even higher. In an edition of 100 copies on labelled, high-grade cobalt cassettes.” - Personnel.
