Prurient - Cocaine Death

>> Saturday, September 27, 2008

Cocaine Death is a compilation of three of Prurient's finest Hospital cassette releases as well as two unreleased tracks. The previously released material forms a triptych exploring the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape; escape being a myth. This collection of cassette material is perhaps the biggest clue in the development of Prurient. This is where the edges blur and advancements reveal themselves. When Prurient material is released in the ether its shock-waves often take on a life of their own. For the first time, listeners of all levels can revel in their abstract longing and tension. For the diehards, two unreleased tracks of Prurient. There's a reason why these releases continue to live on long after the cassettes disappear. This CD shows the power and depth of Prurient in the cassette world. For those whose spindles still spin and those who have moved on, Cocaine Death shows revelation. Digipack CD with 16 page booklet.

This is one of those records which I downloaded first, then bought it. It is that good. One of the best noise albums I´ve heard recently. Mixture of beaty and ugliness.
