Kill Memory Crash
If most of the Ghostly International clique, led by sterling electronic producers Matthew Dear and Tadd Mullinix, is the resurrection/remix of all sounds Detroit, then Kill Memory Crash is the revival of nearby Chicago's Wax Trax! past. Kill Memory Crash mixes its heavy industrial vibes with newfangled IDM techniques, seeking to create something as progressively electronic as Ministry or Adult. The results, recently captured on American Automatic, are sometimes spellbinding, sometimes ponderous. With luck, the group's act will translate into a live performance that keeps the Poplife kids from wandering outside into I/O's garden lounge.
