MADONNATRON

MADONNATRON TRASHMOUTH, OUT NOW Vir­gin Scary: wild-eyed coven get into their groove.

Q (UK) - - Q Review New Albums -

De­liv­ered like a nail through a voodoo doll’s eye, the de­but from London four-piece Madonnatron burns with ma­lign en­ergy. Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan might have stirred a sim­i­lar psy­che­delic caul­dron with her Sexwitch project, but that seems oddly po­lite com­pared with this prim­i­tive garage clang. A prod­uct of the same South London scene that threw up Fat White Fam­ily, Madonnatron bear traces of Siouxsie And The Ban­shees, X, The Cramps and early Sonic Youth, although Head­less Chil­dren, with its gen­uinely ter­ri­fy­ing back­ing vo­cals, sounds as if it’s made largely from stolen body flu­ids and har­vested hair. It’s rough magic, but it works like a charm. VIC­TO­RIA SE­GAL Lis­ten To: Head­less Chil­dren | Tron | Mother’s Funeral
