PINK INDUSTRY ’Low Technology’ (Zulu ZULU 2) ☆☆☆☆
FOR ONCE — the first and only time in the history of record company press releases —
Pink Industry are human. It’s obvious that they bleed, feel and cry which is more than you can say for the likes of the ridiculous KajaGooGoo and the other manufactured, sterile heroes of the scummy ‘new pop’ world.
Like the Passage, Pink Industry have grabbed the hideous artefacts of the new technology and used them to destroy the sterile icons on which that technology is built. Like the Passage, the Industry have got soul! ‘New Aims’ is superb; ‘Send Them Away’ is insidiously magnificent —
I remain a Luddite, and sympathise with the Musicians Union in their bid to neutralise the soul-less long mac lugworms of the synth cult. Nevertheless, my mind is still open find Pink Industry have got through.
