CAVE CURSE: “Stoned & Dethroned” b/w “Out of Time”: 7″

This is a side project of a member of The Hussies with melodic, stabby synth riffs and a cold, robotic drum machine. Perhaps because it’s a side project and less developed, it owes a bit too much to Gary Numan and Stan Ridgeway. Seriously, if you told me this has all been an elaborate prank and I’ve actually been listening to Wall Of Voodoo, I might believe you. I’ve got plenty of Wall Of Voodoo, so I might spin this a few more times, but it’s not a keeper. I’d like to see where it goes, though.
