disco inferno

Heading out shortly on the much-admired Rocket Girl imprint, a lost gem from the criminally overlooked and under-appreciated Disco Inferno. May time sees the re-issue of their debuting full length ‘in debt’, this time bolstered to a double disc wax package and featuring a previously unreleased track. As the press release astutely professes, they were an ensemble swimming against the fashionable tide and ‘almost entirely out on their own, out of step with the times’ – several EP’s and three albums, the band imploded in 1995 due to frustration and financial pressures, with ‘in debt’ a compilation swansong limbed out by the essential ear hugging Che imprint. From that set, one of the highlights was ‘broken’ – murmured in their trademark post punk prowess, this cut delicately shimmies beneath the defences rippled with an introspective slow burn glow that nods to an angular seasoning of early 80’s grooves from the likes of the luddites, Ellery bop and artery whilst forging a kindred sonic tongue with the likes of the Orchids and the Corn Dollies
