In the Hospital Garden / Transformation
The third of March’s trio of Polytechnic Youth 45s, is a revisit to the always enjoyable dark electro world of Berlin’s mighty Detox Twins. The new record offers up a pair of killer synthpop gems which, in the words of the bands’ Mark Vorderhaus “drift into the arena of the unwell with their latest outing In the Hospital Garden, and pose the curious questions: Is it so unfortunate to surrender your mind to a permanent altered state? Can losing oneself irreversibly to a manipulated insanity, actually prove to become a rare and wonderful freedom? Attraction battles control as the transformation completes itself. The b-side, Transformation depicts the liberated insanity without challenge, now thriving and pulsating beyond the point of any return.” Two more ace tunes which precede a full length later in the year for Polytechnic Youth. Killer hooks from synth maestro Mark, aligned with glorious effect to Devi’s icy Nico-esque vocals. Another winner for both artist and label! A pressing of 250 copies. Hand numbered with sticker insert.
