Gang Gang Dance, 'Retina Riddim' (The Social Registry)

6
Retina Riddim
Critical Mass
Label: The Social Registry

by J Niimi

This multimedia assault, though high on concept, is the most suc-cessful representation yet of Gang Gang Dance's kaleidoscopic, neo-primitive, post-punk clamor. Keyboardist and visual artist Brian DeGraw assembled the 24-minute CD and half-hour DVD from shows, soundchecks, practice tapes, field recordings, live video, tour footage, and newly shot abstract vignettes. As the title suggests, there's more than a bit of synesthesia in play: the pulsing, alien sounds on the CD (throbbing, as in gristle) suggest the style of the visuals, while the film's lulling edits merge with the music.
