The Living Dead (excerpt)

from ‘The Living Dead’ / ‘The Word is Fuzz’ by I Monster

/
  • Limited edition 7" lathe cut vinyl + download
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The first Heaven’s Lathe release of 2022 is a wild and funky outing from I Monster, aka notorious Sheffield-based musicians and producers Dean Honer and Jarrod Gosling.

    Here are two startling new songs, both inspired by the bizarre 1973 British cult horror film ‘Psychomania’, concerning a gang of outlaw bikers who return from the dead.

    A-side ‘The Living Dead’ comes riding out on a B-boy rhythm, beset by roaring motorbike engines and sidereal noises. It also features smart vocals from acclaimed visual artist Kid Acne, summoning up vivid snapshot visions of séances, paranormal activities and ‘amphibian worship’. It’s a tune that combines off-beat horror with real dirty fun. In short, it’s classic I Monster.

    B-side ‘The Word Is Fuzz’ is a much stranger beast: heavily filtered, tripped out and lopsided: a psychotic oddity that hooks into your brain. I Monster have always had one foot on the dance floor and one in the grave, but here their obsessions are given free rein.

    They have released numerous critically acclaimed albums, including the ersatz pop of ‘Neveroddoreven’, and the Moog and Buchla driven grooves of ‘Bright Sparks’. They’ve also produced albums by The Human League and Finnish pop star HK119, as well as scoring their own top twenty single with ‘Daydream in Blue’.

    “A psych-pop carnival sideshow... the kaleidoscopic jumble proves you can never have too many ideas as long as you keep an eye on editing.” – NME
