This is (also) the best album the band has ever recorded!
Coming a full 21 years after their debut left-field dancefloor hit “Corporate Slave”, “Babes in Consumerland”
sees the band in transition as never before. Though not mentioned explicitly lyrically, band mastermind Dee
Thrussell’s long journey to recently arrive as a transgender woman informs every musical gesture and plain-
tive lyric. Still possessed of a striking social conscience and the blackest of humours, “Everything is under
Control” exclaims a reverie around social conditioning over a hefty shuffle. “Bleak is My favourite Chic”
chronicles a troubled internal landscape over pogo beat, fuzz-punk bass and squealing analogue synths.
Timely and provocative, “Apocalypse Fatigue” pleads for an end, as an EMS VCS3 chirps and a Fairlight
CMI choir purrs.
Joined by dear friends and collaborators Atom TM, Felix Kubin, Ash Wednesday, John Justin Stewart
(Grace Jones) and The City of Prague Philharmonic Choir, this is electronic music as you’ve never heard it
before – blindingly articulate, fearless and yet strangely accessible. 2013’s incarnation of the legendary
Snog is a now an all female act, a powerhouse trio delivering slyly subversive electronic pop.
