RECORDS / Rock: Consolidated: Play More Music (Nettwerk 040CD)

Click to follow
This tirelessly militant San Francisco trio and their master-mixer Jack Dangers have come up with the most commendably exhausting piece of agit-prop art in many a long decade: 70 minutes of coruscating metal-industrial-rap. What (usually) makes them more than just holier-than-braggarts is their willingness to address moral issues closer to home than US foreign policy, gun laws and fishing industry, or the heinousness of Ted Nugent. 'If you don't like fascism,' a concerned voice counsels at the album's very start, 'don't play industrial music, because that's what it's all about, guys.' Ben Thompson
