Child Abuse - Imaginary Enemy
Band name like Child Abuse is bound to turn heads and for all the wrong reasons, unfortunately (though far worse examples exist). Fret not, however, as the show they’re playing on Oct. 19 at St. Vitus indicates that CA is well aware of negative connotations – the event is both kids friendly and portion of proceedings will be donated to an organization fighting child abuse.
With that out of the way….lets talk about “Imaginary Enemy”, brand new LP from long-running Brooklyn trio. Imagine, if you will, a universe in which Tom Waits started a death metal band (with both Ornette Coleman and The Residents joining the lineup) and you can start getting an idea about the kind of mayhem taking place on this record. Its not metal per se, but the growls and the manic drumming point in that exact direction.
While its hard to say whether there any political statements included on IE (the vocals are mostly indecipherable and there’s no lyric sheet anywhere in sight), its absolute refusal to bow down to times could be seen as a political gesture in itself. To all those that grew on a steady diet of Locust, Melt-Banana and Flying Luttenbachers this record would be a welcome treat.
Imaginary Enemy is out on Oct. 18 on Skin Graft Records
