Curtains!: Deep in Night City 12"
Debut LP from this Chicago band, and it's a corker. This reminds me a lot of their fellow Chicagoans the Daily Void, though without the hardcore influence. Instead, Curtains! play straight up, keyboard and guitar-driven, new wavey garage with a very dark, post-punk-ish slant. The result is something like the creepier post-punk bands out there... think Pere Ubu, Chrome, and maybe even a little Electric Eels. Killer s***. Dead Beat Records
