Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in 1988 this was described as one of the best underground rock records of all time! The band had arisen in 1978 from the furtile breeding ground of no-wave era New York and consisted of three pioneering women. Anglular droning rock and free jazz were welded together to create music which would go on to influence the Fall and Sonic Youth among other bands, and 'In Gut's House' is widely regarded to be one of their finest outings. Hearing the album now, almost 20 years later, it has certainly dated, but there's very little music from that era that hasn't. Occasionally the vocals sound a little hammier than you'd want, but the soundscapes the band create are totally unmatched - dischordant waves of distortion and atonal guitar. The no-wave sound is back in again for sure, with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and their copyists taking the world by storm, but these guys did it first, and they did it a lot better.
