Attrition: Smiling, at the Hypogonder Club (CD)

Product Description

The Hypogonder Club Was the first release in our Archive reissue series of Attrition’s out-of-print Third Mind back catalog. This is their 1985 masterpiece, residing somewhere between electronic, goth and horror-show dance. “A band on the edge, with aching tension . . .exposing a raw nerve of electronic wealth. Dramatically rough with a raw beauty.” – BSIDE MAGAZINE

Music from the empty quarter zine – UK – 95
“More than essential re-issue of one of Attrition’s finest albums. Lush electronic orchestrations for their own fictitious club. Martin Bowes was joined by a host of other musicians for this album who really fleshed out the sound. Alex Novak lent his considerable penetrating vocals to back Martin and Marianne, and on “Feel the Backlash” was given free reign and deadpanned over sparse riffs and reverberating rhythms. the complete album has a hypnotic feel, whilst also being very “up”, and never losing that trademark stark sinister edge of old. with the addition of the single “Shrinkwrap” included, it revealed a poppier sound as well…on their own terms of course! Though Attrition work has continued to excel, it was a shame that the line-up of “Hypogonder” split and further excursions into these minds weren’t realized. PURCHASE. Of course.” – DD
