Various : No More Rock'N'Roll

Necessary or evil? Both.



Stupid title, given that much of the music here seeks to ape the rebellion, noise and incandescent fury of classic punk rock. Only with electronics. Clever, eh?

Necessary or evil? Both. An impressive and frequently unpleasant collection of splattercore, horrifyingly abused samplers and industrial-strength drill'n'bass. Especially awesome tantrums from Bomb 20, DJ Scud and the unavoidable Kid606, and only one real stinker from The Fighting Cocks. Some of the tracks even feature guitars, subversively enough.
