The three-way ‘Los Angeles’ collaboration was born out of a
curiosity which just wouldn’t die. Made up of two of the most
illustrious and inventive drummers of the post-punk era, The
Cure’s Lol Tolhurst, and Budgie from Siouxsie & The Banshees
and The Creatures, along with stellar producer and
multi-instrumentalist Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee, this unlikely
alt-supergroup have spent the last four years spiriting up one of
the most extraordinary albums to appear in 2023.

Perusing the tracklist, with its guest credits for, amongst others,
LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, Bobby Gillespie, Civil Rights
avant-gardist Lonnie Holley, Starcrawler wildchild Arrow de
Wilde and The Edge from U2, you may rightly wonder just what
the 13-track long-player holds in store.

The answer: a hard-hitting and compulsively exploratory
55-minute electronic mindscrew, founded on unrivalled
rhythmic expertise, fleshed out with an armoury of synths,
guitars (Jacknife’s forte) and supplementary percussion, often
overlaid with elite-class strings and brass, then universally
twisted, manipulated and quite masterfully sculpted by Lee,
with his super-producer’s hat on.
