"And Shun The Cure They Most Desire"
Out Of Line
Italian Electro-pioneers Pankow are yet again unleashing their anarchic mix of EBM, Industrial, Pop, Minimal and a cornucopia of brilliant sonic ideas unto mankind. And Shun The Cure They Most Desire contains 13 new tracks from the Dirty Old Men, as well as the bonus disc with remixes and new versions of classic songs.
Seid Radikal! Be radical! This call to arms, as propagated in the song Radikal can be seen as programmatic for the entire new Pankow-album And Shun The Cure They Most Desire, the groups first long player in more than five years, which sees them reunited with original vocalist and non-conformist Alex Spalck who lends his voice to three songs (next to new singer Bram Declercq) and wrote all the lyrics. The sonic anarchists headed by Maurizio (fm) Fasolo and Paolo Favati (whose definitive return to the band will probably delight the old fan base) have again set out to defy genre conventions by conjuring up a Molotov cocktail of EBM, Industrial, Pop, Minimal and Baroque fragments plus a wild cornucopia of sounds, beats and the unbridled fondness for experimentation. Impossible? There is no impossible! Garnished with cynical lyrics and a deliberate disrespect for systemic conventions, Pankow play in a league of their own just like always when the mad Italians unleash an album unto the unsuspecting world. Fans know that they have to approach each new Pankow-release with an open mind, while people with a tendency for pigeonholing will get their stereotypes smacked right back into their faces with a smirk from the band. As a special bonus And Shun The Cure They Most Desire contains the bonus disc , a collection of completely new and exclusive remixes from bands like Rabia Sorda, Tying Tiffany, Ambassador 21 and many more, as well as re- and deconstructions of classic songs by the band. Also included is a video clip for the programmatic album track Dirty Old Men from video artist Isabella Panero. With the new album, Pankow close the circle they started a decade ago with Life Is Offensive Subversion rules! Open your mind!
