    New Zealand's the Dead C are godfathers of underground noise music. While the mystical racket the band has been conjuring for decades now has been adopted by numerous precocious young experimentalists, no one can quite make a such mixture of amorphous cacophony sound so enjoyable. On 2007's FUTURE ARTISTS, the band stick to the formula that made them noise heroes--sputtering rhythms, improvised crackles and hisses; warm drones and feedback washes, all of which can build to stunning peaks or drift off into nothingness. It might sound more familiar than it did a few decades ago, but it's just as remarkable.

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "FUTURE ARTISTS continues to cut an outsider furrow that resists easy imitation."
    Magnet (p.94) - "[T]he music is forever on the verge of collapse, crumbling, not quite pulling itself together but never completely falling apart, either. No music in the world is truer to life."
    The Wire (p.45) - "FUTURE ARTISTS shimmers with mystery....The group create a simultaneous sense of motion and absolute abstraction."
