What the what is going on here!? Doomsday is here, apparently caused by a giant He-Man character shooting laserbeams from his eyes, so the best thing to do is get nasty with each other and "drown in our juices of love". Just take a peek at what's going down on the sleeve!
So was Danny Darrow a formerly devout christian who in the face of the confusing and corrupting climate of the 1970s lost his faith and decided to hell with it and went all in for the decadence? I'd like to believe so.
Anyhow this record is an ingenious display of sleaziness from start to finnish, all cosmic synthesizers shooting through latin percussion and electric guitars teaming up with saxophone bursts. The 12" Long Version which you get here also adds a couple of minutes of epic sequencer droning.
I can easily say this is the best record I own. And it's all thanks to my great friend Mathias who bought this without having heard it and decided to give it to me just because he knew I would like it even more. I did however trade in my double copys of Skatt Bros, Chaz Jankel & Peter Baumann, but it was totally worth it. Thanks Mathias!
