Memorex - Glass Eyes

This group, which has been around for nearly a couple years now, has been on my radar ever since I realized it was fronted by David Lush, formerly of beloved local jangle-popsters The Airfields. This project takes a sharp turn into retrosynthtopia — it made perfect sense to see that the current live incarnation includes Ben Oginz and his Jupiter-6, as this occupies similar musical terrain to his Mystic Triangle project. (The live unit was rounded out by Nyles Miszczyk, playing guit and bass, though he too knows a thing or two about synthesizer operation.) Tasty stuff (and a stylish soundtrack to some 70's dystopian auto-eroticism) as the band played some tunes from their recent tape two, plus some dips back to their first release and a cover of an early Ministry obscurity that fit right into their sound-world.
