The third and final album from the trio of Ted Barrow, Lepke B. and Xentos “Fray” Bentos and perhaps the most extreme of the lot. Like an insane invading insect race’s take on a greatest hits album by a glamrock band that never existed, this is a high-octane rollercoaster through post-modern styling, replete with numberless twists and turns that will leave your brains scrambled. Worth having for the opener alone, the sublime “Glucose,” which demonstrates DTCD’s complete command of mutant song form. A one-band new wave of their own, in their all too brief career they practically reinvented rock music.
