ZAHGURIM Moral Rearmament

CD album | gg195
Zahgurim was a TOPY-affilated band formed in the mid Eighties by Paul Ackerley and William Vince. They recorded one album, "Moral Rearmament" for Dossier side label Atonal. It was produced and mixed by Paul Ackerley and William Vince with Simon Crabtree and Julian Gilbert (both of Bourbonese Qualk) at The Old Ambulance Station, Old Kent Road, London on October 24 and 25 1984. This new and first digital edition celebrates the 30th anniversary of a classic Industrial album. A lot of percussion meets heavy Industrial beats, voices seem to come from nowhere and lose themselves in the sound. If you need comparison think Bourbonese Qualk, Psychic TV, Test Dept., Z'ev. Zahgurim later went on to form Left Hand Right Hand, but that's a different story. Tracklist: 1. Dropkick 2. New Flesh 3. The People's Temple 4. Panstwo 5. Shower Scene 6. Two Women 7. Belle Of Death 8. Dog Unit 9. Presence 10. Stimulation 11. Shower Scene 12. New Flesh. Price: € 16,-/copy incl worldwide shipping.

Der typische Industrial-Sound der 6 Tracks schwankt dann zwischen perkussiv-hypnotischen Rhythmen und albtraumhaften Atmosphären, die von halluzinierenden Vocals ganz im Stile eine Genesis P-Orridge garniert werden. Eventuell ist das Ganze mit einer Mischung aus PSYCHIC TV, TEST DEPT. und ZEV ganz gut beschrieben, wenn auch „The People’s Temple“ dann eher wie ein ganz altes DEATH IN JUNE-Live-Stück klingt. Auf jeden Fall ist „Moral Rearmament“ ein interessantes Album, was es lohnt, dem Vergessen für die Nachwelt entrissen zu werden.
