Neither/Neither the new album from The Black Dog. This isn’t out until August (will be available on CD/vinyl).
We remain a long way from the cool techno of Temple of Transparent Balls. We’re back in the dystopian, paranoid vision of Scarecrow Radio. This is information as overload and attack. The album is full of layers upon layers, always containing elements of distortion. Only on tracks like Them (Everyone Is A Liar But) or Books does there come any semblance of hope. Not an easy listen but an interesting one.
As the accompanying blurb says “Burroughs was right: we are now living in a world that is nothing short of a total information war. We are neither one thing nor another, endlessly on the fence in the face of an onslaught of disinformation. Non-linear hypermedia systems are openly used to control us, their operation being totally exposed, mocking our impotence, yet complete in their power. We are all proles now; all are expected to maintain a mental state of Neither/Neither, of uncertainty and inaction. Even in a world where anyone can be an instant expert on any subject in a single click, we find that all our knowledge is a mere replay of someone else’s script.”
