Various Hot Shit: Sonic Mook Experiment

The previous Sonic Mook Experiment comps bore the subtitle "Future Rock & Roll." The "hot shit" on volume three ain't futuristic at all. Most of the bands here pay homage to Brit post-punks the Fall and Gang Of Four, NY art funk minimalists ESG, and the obscure mid-'80s roster of Ron Johnson Records (think angular, spasmodic noise-rock by guys who can't get laid). Only old fuckers who read NME in the '80s would know the source of this bass-heavy aggro-rock; to anyone else, it'll sound as fresh as tomorrow. Featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs, !!!, Radio 4, and lots of brilliant groups you've never heard of.
