JUNIOR MAKHNO

Theatre of the Macabre

(Bruit Direct Disques - BRD1) 7-inch $7.25

A precarious concept album for the tragic era of the working poor that generated some priceless flailing among the chattering class, but Detailed Twang seem to have the levelest head when they describe it as “Strange and pleasingly ill-fit mash of distorted horror rap, electronic tweedling, screams, monsters sound, and manipulations of all sorts. Mostly instrumental, and heavy in every sense of the word.” Six tracks over and done with in less than ten minutes. For crying bones and bludgeoned hopes.
