Plastic Noise Experience - Control
Electro, EBM Plastic Noise Experience. A very distinct sounding band, which I've been introduced to with their 2004 album - 'Machinenmusik'. Created by Claus Kruse and Stephan Klawa in 1989 the band (now just a project of Claus Kruse) has ten albums in their catalog plus tons of singles, EPs and other releases. But even with such deep roots in the dark electronic music, Plastic Noise Experience somehow doesn't have a big status in the scene that it surely deserves.

'Control', is a new EP released by Alfa-Matrix in September. It consists of 11 tracks + a video. The listener gets a glimpse of new material that will surely be released on an upcoming album. We also get four remixes by bands such as Armageddon Dildos or Vomito Negro.

So what's new in the Plastic Noise Experience camp? Not much, but in this case this is actually quite good. All the songs sound very analogue, very old school, almost 80's like. There's not many bands that sound like this anymore I believe. You can actually say that the sound consists of some part of the electro-clash movement, 80's EBM and punk rock but with all the harsh and grittiness you can get. You won't get any 4x4 trance anthems here. You won't get IAMX-like vocals here either. THIS is 100% "industrial" music.

Hah, even the Alfa-Matrix watermark ("this is the promotional copy...") is recorded with some distortion.

This EP is exactly what Plastic Noise Experience is. You get very club friendly distorted yet electro songs and then you get two ambient like tracks as well. The remixes are also done quite nicely and fit perfectly with the originals.

So. Never heard of Plastic Noise Experience? Here's where you start!
