CIRCUS MORT (Buy CDs by this artist)
Circus Mort EP (Labor) 1981

These New Yorkers — led by future Swans founder/guitarist Michael Gira — sound like they want to back you into a corner and harangue you into a screaming fit. They're not some punks on a rampage, though — this is amphetaminized dance music with a faint European tinge and cool, discreet keyboards. As a hectoring vocalist, Gira is, under the circumstances, quite articulate. I'll be good — honest!

[Jim Green]
