Whitehouse - Mummy And Daddy *repost*
Review by Brayden Bagnall
Genre/s: Power Electronics
For Fans Of: Sutcliffe Juegend, Ramleh, Final Solution, Throbbing Gristle
Chances are that if you've heard about Whitehouse, you'll know what they're all about. The pioneers, and indeed creators of the power-electronics genre unleash a full on assault of the senses, caring very little for your well-being or decency. Their misogynistic, obscene and violent lyrics are a perfect companion to the chaotic 'music' - the high frequency blasts of noise and feedback are anything but friendly. Technically only four of the five of the tracks on this album are Whitehouse material, the fifth an aural documentary of sorts from Peter Sotos. Comprised of samples and interviews, 'Private' is a sordid look into rape, molestation and abduction, and is a fitting close to such an unnerving album.
'Mummy and Daddy' will stick with you long after you listen to it, mostly because you'll feel so dirty and disgusted after listening to it.
