EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING REISSUES ON AARGHT RECORDS

Aarght Records is reissuing the three albums by Eddy Current
Suppression Ring -- the self-titled debut (2006), Primary Colours
(2008) and Rush to Relax (2010). The cover artwork for the first two
albums has been slightly remixed, but their high-flying finale has of
course been left untouched. All are unlimited editions on black vinyl.
No, they won't not be reforming, doing any interviews or playing any
shows.

 

EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING - Primary Colours LP/CD/CS 

In the tradition of the best of Australian rock’n’roll – Missing
Links, Easybeats, AC/DC, The Saints, Victims, X, Straightjacket Nation
– comes Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Working with a formula of
dedicated simplicity, ECSR take a brilliant half talking/half singing
vocalist, play one riff and a primitive beat and stick with it. It's
not all Neanderthal thump and grind on Primary Colours however,
there's plenty of melodic guitar chime and smart lyricism to go around
too, and 'We'll Be Turned On' (complete with a great Clean-esque
keyboard line) is one of the best garage pop songs in a long while.
Elsewhere, there's 'Which Way to Go' and 'Colour Television' which
roll Modern Lovers, the Fall, and Television into one, and add a lot
of trademark ECSR to create something that's not quite garage rock
(too smart) or post-punk (too fun). Why reinvent the wheel, when you,
like ECSR, can add some bigger, shinier rims to make it seem brand
new.
