The Ghost Frequency

Nightmare

As the ’80s continue to be recycled, so it must inevitably come to pass that horrible late ’80s electro-industrial awfulness like DAF and Nitzer Ebb will start echoing in new bands too young to know the horror of what they are reanimating. Certainly the first 40 seconds of ‘Nightmare’ is just that, a horrible fingernails-on-blackboard racket of pained vocals and brain-ache bass. Thankfully, The Ghost Frequency then remember it’s always nice to have a song in there somewhere, and it all morphs into an lovely, funky, electro-Franz Ferdinand oddity. They’re touring with Hadouken! – pray they don’t start getting ideas.
