Kabbahri – Astronaut
From Kabbahri – Ive
Released on Roof Records, 1990, Germany
Kabbahri is not really into casual music… In 1990, 3 years after its evocatively named first album, War Inside My Head, the German band released a second album called Ive. While the noisy experimentations on the first one were always backed by a solid rhythmical pattern, on Astronaut, the rhythmical pattern seems to melt in the growingly chaotic guitar apparitions.
Kabbahri really takes us to the punkiest side of electronic dance music, adopting a sound that has maybe more to do with Black Flag or Agnostic Front than Nitzer Ebb. Astronaut brings the raw energy that can be found in a small venue, during a hardcore live show, to the club.
This is an ideal tune to put a big mess on a well-behaving dancefloor !
