TOTAL CONTROL - Henge Beat LP. Sometimes it's great to accidentally stumble across a band when checking out other blog posts as was the case with Total Control. Total Control are a Melbourne, Australia based band who play an infectious/catchy as hell style of music that incorporates 80's stlyle postpunk/new wave and adds a garage rock element. Total Control's influences include The Wipers, Stooges, Mission Of Burma, and MC5. The eleven songs on Henge Beat make for a phenomenal album. Do yourself a favor and take Total Control for a spin. Great stuff. Beautiful art, and great 80’s s sounding tunes akin to Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Gatefold cover to boot. One of my favorites LP’s this year.
