Big Black - He's a whore / The Model (7" single, vinyl rip). 1987

   While punk rock was always supposed to be about pushing the envelope, few post-punk bands seemed willing to go quite so far to creatively confront their audience as Big Black.   The group's guitars alternately sliced like a machete and ground like a dentist's drill, creating a groundbreaking and monolithic dissonance in the process. 
   Their use of a drum machine, cranked up to ten and sounding a tattoo that pummeled the audience into submission, was a crucial precursor to the coming industrial music scene.
   Big Black was a group who maintained firmly held ideals when it came to doing business; they paid for their own recordings, booked their own shows, handled their own management and publicity, and remained stubbornly independent at a time when many independent bands were eagerly reaching out for the major-label brass ring (from Allmusic).
   They released two LP's ("Atomizer", 1986 and "Songs about fucking", 1987). Both of them are punk masterpieces. 


   This single contains two killer songs from "Songs about fucking". "The Model" is a noisy punk cover of Kraftwerk's '70's classic.
