dead sea apes & adam stone Warheads (LP, £20.95)label: Cardinal Fuzz
A full-length collaboration between writer/artist Adam Stone and Manchester instrumentalists Dead Sea Apes. Classic British pessimism and speculative dystopian fiction entwine artfully with morbid social commentary and a long piss-streak of bleak humour. This is a claustrophobic and self-contained world where paranoid bunker mentality goes for a Pot Noodle with a faded society always teetering on the brink of collapse, ranting street-punk drops bad acid and space station fuses with bus station. Standing their ground in a dirty jumbled junkyard in-between Robert Calvert's schizoid Hawkwind monologues, Dead Kennedys' stinging cranked-up racket, Gil Scott Heron's rhythmic social polemic, Butthole Surfers' deep-brain-fried psych-punk and John Cooper Clarke's wry wit, Adam Stone leads Dead Sea Apes through a whistle-stop tour of planet Earth's inevitable descent into political confusion and bureaucratic misery. 350 pressing.
