Artist: METAL URBAIN
Title: Panik
Format: 7"
Label: Alternative Tentacles
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Meet the inventors of synth-punk: Frances Metal Urbain! It all started with this record; at the time they called it "electro-punk." Out of print since 1977, the long vanished Metal Urbain debut returns! Backed with two guitars--no drumkit or bass--the band fired angry French-language vocals over scathing mechanical noises using their mother tongue as a weapon like no one had before, and few have since! Their influence in their home country was so huge that a tradition of homegrown drum-machine punk bands continues to this day. Some like Berurier Noir and Ludwig Von 88 would become much bigger then Metal Urbain, but none were as nasty. Jello Biafra, who discovered the band while traveling as a "teenage hippie" in France, says: "As far as Im concerned, Charles de Goal, Kas Product, Ludwig von 88 and Berurier Noir, and even Americas Big Black, Digital Leather and the even-more-extreme Atari Teenage Riot owe their very existence to Metal Urbain." Alternative Tentacles is proud to offer this rare 7-inch as a one-time special release exclusively on Record Store Day. Limited to 1,000 copies, it is only a teaser of what will be a three-volume LP Metal Urbain reissue series by the label, which will include 1980s Les Hommes Morts Sont Dangereux, 2006s JIrai Chier Dans Ton Vomi (produced by Biafra) and 2008s Creve Salope. This is no longer nostalgia, but once again a band of the future, sure to appeal to fans of Suicide, Killing Joke, Ministry, Berurier Noir and Atari Teenage Riot. Engarde!" - Alternative Tentacles.
