Staff Reviews


Taking their cues from the Anglo-industrial scree of the late 70’s/early 80’s — Barnsley’s RETREAT soundtrack the frenzy of our times with an inspired set of primitive machine-music. The production here is immediate, imbued with the sweat & spirit of punk, while the vocals recall (but importantly don’t imitate) the Sprechgesang delivery of Mark E. Smith. The CD comes housed in an elaborate photo-book, featuring contributions from key players in the Barnsley underground. This is weighty, cathartic stuff — highly recommended if you’re into Trevor Jackson, early Human League, Throbbing Gristle, DFA, Bourbenese Qualk, Ike Yard etc. X
