#117: THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY - “the subversive sound of the conspiracy” aka “the sin crusade”
the cover of this 7” is a little weird. actually i thought the 7” is called “the subversive sound of the conspiracy” and there are three songs on it (“a new identity for the bored”, “creative/noncreative stimulation for the urban terrorist”, “autodestruction in the name of liberation”). but when you are listening to the record you clearly figure out that there are only two songs on it. and because of being pedantic sometimes i needed to do some research. the 7” was released on transsolar records and their website says that the 7” is called “the sin crusade” and there are two songs (“the sin crusade”, “airports”) on it. so somehow the packaging is really confusing. but nevermind.
there are quite a lot of THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY-7”s in my collection. because of being into SEPARATION and REFUSED a lot, i really was curious how the band of lars (strömberg) and dennis (lyxzén) will sound like. and i really liked their 60ies-punk/protopunk/garagerock a lot right from the beginning. i’ve seen them live a couple of times and it was great every time.
the two songs on the 7” are really good as well. i’m no expert on the 60ies original stuff, but somehow THE SONICS come to my mind, but the garagerock-influence is there already. if you see this record somewhere, it’s worth getting it.
