Here comes the second chapter of Tru West`s DOWC saga, starting from where we were left at : the ritualistic afro march of Dj Sotofett marking the invasion of the wild over the falling western civilization.
The opening original `A Rock in a Cop`takes us back straight into battle. The struggling psychotic progression of Raffaele`s clarinet is a fierce resistance against the overwhelming tribalism of the raw drums. The escalation of violence and blood culminates with the desperate wrenching screams of Rufus.
`We Have Your Money, What Can You Do Now ?` is the soundscape of a post-apocalyptic scenery, dominated by wind and fire. The sound of sampled crockery suggests a shy presence of human beings left to a primitive condition, pillaged of their traditional comforts and technologies.
Flip side may leave you surprised after the engaging listening experience of side A.
Mass Prod drops a muscular techno tool softening and reducing Tru West`s original elements to a dreamy swinging background.
Harmonious Thelonious remix particularly fits the role of outro for this record. Sun rays finally bless the ruins of a wasted land. His progressive afro-wave interpretation leads the listener to a glorious sunset view full of hope and mysticism.
