The Art to make Music and to make it interesting is a job that Avant! Records knows very well. This music work of the post-punk due from Vancouver gives a perfect demonstration of the cure and skill of this label. The music of KOBAN is an hidden black pearl in the memories of the audience which still is yearning for punk-wave soundscapes. Smoothly ready to be a sound track for SM acts Abject Obsession flows in the stream of an eternal memento of vinyl and distorted guitar, pulsing bass and weird french voices seized and flogged by harsh synths. What is amazing for a terminal wave-lover like me is how this proposal so traditional and sadistically observant of the punk-wave rules is never boring and it thrives perfectly in its eerie garden.
