Artist: KEIKI
Title: Waltham Holy Cross
Format: CD
Label: Cheap Satanism (@)
Rated: *****
Presenting themselves like a satanic pop duo, the Brussels' band Keiki are bringing to the attention of our readers their second album titled WALTHAM HOLY CROSS. Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock (voice and theremin) and Raphael Rastelli (guitar, programming and theremin) packed their album with noisy guitars, drum machine beats, theremin screams and above all, the distinctive Dominique's vocals which will make you recognize Keiki into a bucket full of CDs and not only because for how it sounds but also for what she sings. On WALTHAM HOLY CROSS you'll hear about Andy Warhol's mother ("Andy's Candy"), homosexual love between a mouse and a dragon ("Rainbow Cheese"), an English seaside town for the elderly ("Skegness)", the love of a butcher for a prostitute in an US mining town ("Lottie Johl"), cancer ("Forest Fire"), stalking ("Glue") or dissection ("Vital" ' a tribute to Japanese film-maker Shinya Tsukamoto). Musically Keiki mix 80s punk, 90s noise and alternative pop. If you like early Sonic Youth and early Siouxsie & The Banshees and you aren't afraid of a bit of originality out of control, you can check some tunes at their myspace page.
