This much is real: the indelible darkness, the deeply-felt dread. No affectation here. No bloody need.
This much is unreal: the unmusic (like the undead). Art-directed, not played. The glittering audaciousness of such an approach recalling earlier manifestations of DIY synthpop and even punk. In spirit, not in sound.
Black Plastic is (Lemon magazine founder and visual artist) Kevin Grady's monster, made flesh with the electrifying production prowess of arsonist André Obin. Behind deep-set eyes, the monster, like all God's creatures, must extinguish. Just not tonight.
Tonight is for dancing.
