Special guests: HANEKE TWINS
The beginning of the third millennium, as you know, was marked by a renaissance of dance rock and gothic. There were so many bands composing according to the precepts of Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy and Depeche Mode that, on the one hand, it was easy to make a career on the crest of a fashionable wave, and on the other, this crest still needed to be climbed. The duo of Justin Warfield and Adam Breivin, however, succeeded without any difficulty. Minimalist tight sound with fat bass and atmospheric synths, dashing drum machine motor beat, bright name, vaguely referring to Joy Division, and here it is - the cocktail is ready. Add to that the catchy visuals of the covers and you have one of the top bands of the decade.
In the matter of reviving the traditions of post-punk geniuses, She Wants Revenge achieved almost the most impressive success. Their first self-titled album sounded like a sincere declaration of love, and the second - "This is Forever" - already looked like a séance, causing a chill to tickle the nerves on the skin. In 2007, when the black cover of this disc was released, it was hard to imagine that this music could be much more durable than the works of other propagandists of the updated post-punk. Perhaps the point here is the origin of the musicians.
In addition to the icy cold and venomous grins of the British gothic heroes of the 1970s and 80s, Warfield and Breyvin bring with them the spicy aroma of bohemian Los Angeles. It is this combination that makes the music of She Wants Revenge unique, and it is absolutely appropriate and even necessary for gloomy romantics anywhere in the world.
