Here's some friggin' crazy music to kick off the new year: "The Sick Generation" is the new CD by NYC-based Charles Pierce's outlet End, a collection of sixteen electro-rock muzak pieces made up of music samples and references to sixties ez-listening oldies music, surf music, tons movies, tv shows and films and frenzy injections of everything every nostalgic person has memories of. "The Sick Generation" boldly ventures into excotic and historic audio libraries and archives that will make your bootie rock to the funky sounds of vibraphones, organs, horn stabs, orchestral arrangements, sitar, synth pads, trumpets and a bunch of rock drums, guitars, breakbeats, but it does so fearlessly and at a pace that won't allow for enough time to even comprehend what's going on... it's all thrown at you from every direction, shredded, mixed and remixed in a way that is very familiar to drum'n'bass artists and DJ's and making it a very exciting and up-beat record that sounds exceptionally modern for something based partly on such vintage material. The album is really mostly a remix album, featuring the skills of Foetus, The Bran Flakes, Messer Chups, Society Cleaners, Drop the Lime, Jason Forrest, Ning Nong, Duran Duran Duran, Mad/EQ, Hecq. Very original.
