New wave or soft pink truth? (tigerbeat6)

Punk's not dead!...
Indeed...!!!(chik chik chik) with 'Louden up now', in their own way managed to make peace between Disco and Punk, this time Matmos' Drew Daniel (aka The Soft Pink Truth) achieves the same, possibly even more succesfully with his new project "Do you want the new wave or do you want the Soft Pink Truth?". He revitalises the punk sensibility witha glitch-housy-disco-clashy outcome. The title is a modified title of Minuteman's ballad "Do you want thenew wave, or do you want the truth?". In this project Daniel covers underground punk legends such as Die Kreuzen, Minor Threat,Rudimentary Peni and Crass, isolating the lyrics that are flogged in the typical noisy punk distorsion, by putting them in a completely cheerfull disco musical context. The result is again punk.You get Minor Threat's "Out of step" reinvented into a tech-popanthem with Dani Siciliano singing "Don't smoke/ Don't drink/ Don'tfuck/At least I can fucking think."Other guest vocalists include Blevin Blectum (in "I owe it to thegirls" by Teddy&the Frett Girls), fashion designer Jeremy Scott(in "Media Friend V.S.B" by Rudimentary Peni), as well as Drew's Matmos fellow Martin Schmidt singing Nervous Gender's controversial offensive lyrics -"Jesus was a cock-sucking Jew from Galilee/Jesuswas just like me"(Confession) over electro-clashy handclaps. Likewise ironically the homophobia in the Angry Samoans' "Homosexual" is incorporated into a gay-esq acid pumping "hands in the air" disco hymn. Finally, the 48 second lasting Styne and Robin's Broadwaytune "Lookin Back" symptomatically closes this album with "It's nicelooking back at the past/ Full of memories that last/ Souvenirs of alife that was fast and fun/ Now it's done."
