Artist: MOON POOL & DEAD BAND
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Agitated
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Five tracks of post apocalyptico techno from Urban Americanica fore runners MOON POOL & DEAD BAND. Detroit, Michigan being the birthing place for this, Moon Pool & Dead Band, A duo who deal in old school DIY tweaked and bleaked techno ideal that assimilates the dystopian furies oft found amongst some of the master-works of John Carpenter to a no-future groove. Moon Pool & Dead Band is DAVID SHETTLER and NATE YOUNG (WOLF EYES). "It is all analog synth, real drums and whatever.. played live=no overdubs, make no mistake this is syncopated synthesizer music or Detroit Techno....Dance music" ---Nate Young Amazing sleeve art...see to believe! 700 only." -Agitated

Artist: MOON POOL & DEAD BAND
Title: Patsy / Patsy (Jack Ruby Version)
Format: 7"
Label: Cass
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Oh shit! What happens when a dude from the SIGHTS/SSM hooks up with one of the geniuses behind noise-mongers WOLF EYES? Old-school Detroit techno jams, plain and simple. This single is MP&DBs debut on vinyl and the dirty danceable vibe is undeniable. Analog synthesizers and sequencers to the max. This may be just the thing Electrifyin Mojo needs to hear to bring his ass out of retirement." -Cass.

Artist: MOON POOL & DEAD BAND
Title: Human Fly
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Detroit deviants MOON POOL & DEAD BAND hardwire their gutter-disco waveforms with all the slime lab atmospherics and sci-fi circuitry scuzz that one might expect (and hope for) from a duo comprised of veteran garage-punk drummer DAVE SHETTLER and WOLF EYES noise lifer NATE YOUNG. Utilizing a swap meets worth of crusty synths, sequencers, drum machines and outmoded FX units, and adhering to a purists regimen of "all live and improvised, no overdubs," Moon Pool & Dead Bands rogue-wizard approach to basement beat music has already birthed some refreshingly unclassifiable tunnel-rat techno (see their self-titled 12-inch on Agitated for proof), but "Human Fly" feels like their unambiguous highlight to date.  Motoring on a busted industrial-funk rhythm, the title track grinds and grooves through a maze of modular synth sparks, acid ooze and fried smoke before stopping suddenly to reveal a Cramps sample sputtering tinnily under all the noise; then, with almost a comic sense of timing, they re-bury it in the pumping pulse of duct-taped electronics. "Jagged Orbit" and "Cyber Rebels" ebb and flow with a lighter touch while looped percussion, jazzy house leads and synthesizer shrapnel echo across the stereo field like soft comets, the beats finally fading away in soothing waves of deep space hiss. An unusual synthesis of vibes and ideas, "Human Fly" is an ideal addition to the canon of inexplicable American EBM originators. Limited edition of 500." - Not Not Fun.
