Pain Teens - destroy me, lover (1993)
Pain Teens released their best album with Destroy Me Lover, an explosive fusion of the psychedelic rock of the 60s, urban garage rock, grunge, stoner-rock, industrial suffocation, destructive glam ("Tar Pit"), anthemic folk and power-pop ("RU 486" - with the raga guitar spiralling out of control), and dwelling in a paranoid atmosphere ranging from sinister ("Cool Your Power", "Lisa Knew"), hallucinogenic somnambulism ("Prowling"), bombastic music-hall ("Dominant Man"), industrial spy-soundtrack with hip-hop breaks ("Sexual Anorexia"), voodoo march ("Body Memory"), delirium tremens ("Shock Treatment") etc. The cover of Leonard Cohen's "Story Of Isaac" sounds paradisiac when compared to the rest of the sonic mayhem here.
Get it here.
