Boomkat Product Review:
Severely worn-down, eviscerating industrial experiments from Italy, 1982, dug up and resuscitated in its entirety by Mannequin for the first time, backed with a strong edit by Alessandro Adriani.
Fabrizio Lucarini and Silvia Innocenti’s Plath first bubbled back to the surface when Alessio Natalizia (Not Waving) included their ace I Am Strange Now on his Mutazione (Italian Electronic & New Wave Underground 1980-1988) compilation for Strut back in 2013.
Fast fwd a couple of years and Mannequin now present I Am Strange Now as part of a 12” expansion of Plath, corralling the original’s guttural knot of spat-out vocals and whizz dick electronics alongside the proto-BM meets The Haka style of Proletarian Submission 2 (the Howl) and the burnt throbs of Telik - 12345, which could almost be a stray Conet Project transmission.
However, it’s only the boldest DJs who would dare play those bits, so Alessandro Adriani gives Proletarian Submission 2 a stronger pair of boots to stomp around on the B-side streak of numbly hypnotic, glowering EBM techno.
