[press release] The Screen Vinyl Image / Rude 66 split 7 inch takes dark Industrial Electro sounds and edgy Wax Trax / 4AD era guitars and pushes them to the outer limits; offering up a heavy dose of new-wave futurism.
Screen Vinyl Image, well known for putting on raging guitar feedback shows, are also no strangers to electronic music, and their track "Tomorrow is Too Far" is possibly the furthest the band has gone yet in the realm of analog machines and horror/sci-fi themes. An acid influenced bass line pulses along with driving drums while guitars and synths float in and out of the mix building into a tidal wave of noise-laden atmospheres.
Rude 66, one of the founders of The Hague acid sound, and who has released records with Bunker, Crème Organization, Viewlexx and more, brings us I Am God, a march into darkness filled with stabbing basses, cold synths, edgy guitars and vocoder vocals by wife, Shauna Lekx, delivered in calculated bloodlust and horror. Rude follows in the footsteps of 2009’s highly praised Sadistic Tendencies LP, using sounds from EBM, Industrial, and Darkwave to score out some heady moments of electronic mayhem and dystopia.
