Estranged- Subliminal Man LP. Past and present members of Portland, OR hardcore mainstays such as Remains Of The Day, Hellshock, Warcry, Lebenden Toten dish out 10 tracks of icy, ominous post-punk. Since their last release, The Estranged have dialed back the explicit aggression of their early singles a bit, and dialed up the textured, atmospheric, layered sounds of primal '80s deathrock and post-punk. Think early Wire, Joy Division, Crisis and the Wipers, and then add musicians with the skill to bring something interesting and exciting to their sound. 'The Subliminal Man' was impeccably recorded at Type Foundry Studios in Portland and features eight new ones, a re-recording of 'Statue In A Room' (originally released as a split 7' with Autistic Youth) plus an absolutely stunning cover of The Flys' 1978 classic 'Love And A Molotov Cocktail.' 10 tracks in all and the LP includes a digital download of the album along with a printed lyrics-sheet insert.
