Research Reactor Corporation is back from ‘meeting adjourned’ and it’s all bizniz for the Australian nuke group on their follow-up sophomore cassingle compilation LP on yours truly ERSTE THEKE TONTRÄGER. We’ve lost all connection to the cooling towers and the containment facility is overloaded. It’s a toxic dump of synth, slime, and snarl. It’s Pee Wee Herman starring in a Blade Runner remake; Devo writing the score for Mad Max. It’s easy to assume that nothing could top the waste dump called Research Reactor Corp. but compared to this new piece of plastic that outdated thing is (nuclear) decommissioned. This – dare I say – experimental compilation comes crashing through the safety doors and slams into some previously untapped atomic potential. It’s angry and frantic; just the way I prefer music. Everything about Research Reactor Corp. indicates chaos, but amid the hazardous material is a groove that keeps you ticking. When the plane goes down, make sure you have your oxygen mask on – kind of feeling. You could call it some kind of “Toxic Beat”. The entire LP is a big safety siren that you’ve wasted your life in this hazardous hunk, the subconscious warning signal telling you to wake up from an experimental drug induced coma. Either way, I’m wide awake and grooving.
