WICKED POSEUR: Maybe Eliminator: 7" EP

Sep 25, 2007

I can picture Arthur Bates, the one man behind Wicked Poseur, sitting in his basement apartment, shades drawn, absinthe in hand, listening to a steady diet of Joy Division. I can’t picture this same guy caring enough to write, record, press, and distribute to other people a 7”. That’s how bleak an image I get from these slow, morose, icy, yet still rather catchy songs. And they were made in isolation; at least Ian Curtis had bandmates. Maybe Eliminator is all right, just keep away from sharp metal objects when listening. Mike Faloon
