Goudron Raw Voltage
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Ersatz Audio
Raw Voltage is not the disco-punk equivalent of the Stooges' similarly titled Raw Power, but it does agitate with more aggression than most recent keyboard-centric efforts. Detroit musician/visual artist Goudron (Ron Zakrin) makes for a compelling doppelganger to his hometown label honchos in Adult.. Both Goudron and Adult. love those zany sounds of '80s computer games, but they also infuse electro with a threatening undercurrent that's equal parts Black Sabbath's soot-encrusted riffing and D.A.F.'s brawny death disco. And Goudron has a more fucked-up palette of unhinged sounds zinging around his mind than his superiors at Ersatz. Dude, it's dangerous to show up your boss.
