What was really scary about this music back in the day - and I was there - was just how dark it was. As the review above says, this was a pungent darkness, but that doesn't highlight just how far this music went. This was music for junkies, for heroin addicts. It wasn't rebellious music, it was tunes by people who couldn't hold a tune. Like the other tracks on No New York (I wish I still had my copy, so I could sell it on eBay), the darkness this music presents is one of no return, similar to that of bands like Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, who were the British version of the same zeitgeist. Many of these bands probably aspired to be the next Velvet Underground, but they ended up being nothing more than footnotes, and they deserve no better.
