Doctor Scientist/Octagon Control- Split 7". Doctor Scientist claims the A-side with four screaming synth-punk numbers that feature a melding of shredded vocals and chirpy - almost poppy - keyboards. They're like the Screamers recast for a more melodic, multi-tasking era. The Octagon Control side features two equally impressive songs. Slithering and ominous, a little more free form than Doctor Scientist, this band hooked me immediately with "Davey Crotchhitch," which is slow and dirge-like, with vocals that echo like cries from a gas chamber. THIS IS THE RARE COVER VERSION OF THIS SINGLE OF WHICH ONLY 100 ARE MADE. IT FEATURES A NICE SCREEN PRINTED JACKET WITH ALTERNATE ARTWORK FROM THE STANDARD COVER THAT WAS ONLY PHOTO COPIED!
