You’ve found something cool, something so rad that you knew you were going to buy it the moment you saw it. You excitedly threw the tape into your deck and as the sound waves first washed over your ears, you realized that something was wrong! “What the hell is this?”
For me, it was the sound of Rob Zombie singing over drum and bass. Which may sound more surprising than it was because I was expecting to hear White Zombie. I thought that I had picked up a cassette copy of their 1992 album La Sexorcisto, but had in fact received their 1996 remix album Supersexy Swingin’ Sounds.
At first, this was upsetting that my first White Zombie album was essentially not a White Zombie album. However, there are some really far out sounds on this tape. The music is fitting of it’s title; the grooves are fat and chunky while Rob Zombie’s voice slithers through the sonic scenery.
There is an array of different electronic styles employed on this mix but this keeps things interesting. Moments of trance induced ecstasy and disorientation are blasted wide open by ferocious, driving rhythms.
This album is cool and it’s down right evil – acquire if possible! Perfect for late-night drives and melting your mind.
