CROC SHOP BIO / BACKGROUND:
Croc Shop formed in 1987 as Crocodile Shop and released their debut album in 1988. Lullaby, produced by Dave Fielding of the Chameleons UK was a dark guitar based work, that only hinted at what was to come. Between 1989 and 1990 they made a transition from goth-rock to industrial after the ongoing replacement of people with machines, releasing the two more electronic-based vinyl EPs: Measure By Measure & Technological Optimism. The pace picked up for the band in 1993, with the release of their CD-debut, Celebrate the Enemy. Produced by Sister Machine Gun's Chris Randall, the album was described by Alternative Press as a "hard and harsh blend of high energy rock with the melodic aspects of electro and the high angst of industrialism." A critically praised remix album entitled Crush Your Enemies, followed and inaugurated their stylistic experimentation.

In 1995 Crocodile Shop signed with Metropolis Records, and in the following year released their third disc, Beneath. Featuring the work of MickHale (vocals, programming) and vMarkus (keyboards, backing vocals), Crocodile Shop produced one of the best electro releases of the year. CMJ wrote that "The trio displays hints of punk, techno, pop and r&b on it's latest creation ... living proof that the DIY sprit is very much alive & well in the electronic music world." Their sophomore Metropolis release, Pain, took the basic sound of Beneath and expanded upon it, adding more ominous melodic hooks, intelligent industrial sequences and fractured drum'N'bass elements. The European issue of Pain was packaged along with a bonus live disc recorded in Germany in 1997. Two more remix CDs quickly followed, Metalwerks ('97) and Soviet ('98).

Core members MickHale and vMarkus were joined by Len9 (electronics & percussion) for 1999's Everything is Dead and Gone. This third release for Metropolis continued in their tradition of strong and challenging electronic music, netting the band a feature in Alternative Press. Outburn Magazine in turn hailed Croc Shop as "the leaders of the American electro-industrial movement." 2000 marked the release of Croc Shop's fourth release for Metropolis, titled Order and Joy, which reached #9 on CMJ's RPM chart. Side-Line Magazine deemed Order and Joy "Their best album ever. Croc Shop make a return to their industrial/EBM source," and promptly featured an interview with the band in it's pages. Later that year, the Wrong remix CD was issued in a limited edition of 999 through crocshop.com, the band's official web-site.

Croc Shop have also appeared on a number of high-profile compilations, including both of Cleopatra's "Tributes to" the Cure and Skinny Puppy. Three side projects have also been released by Mick Hale, (two albums of his dub-electro project Division #9, and one album of the collaborative band proGREX.iv, with fellow Croc Shop member vMarkus), as well as producing Hand of God's debut CD. vMarkus in return has released his own mp3.com/DAM cd called Subliminal Gravity, and Len9 has had a few compilation appearances with his own Mortmain project. The band has also done several remixes for a wide variety of other artists, including SisterHood member James Ray, Belgium's SA 42, California's Collide & Battery, and Ohio's dubok & Flesh Field, to name a few.

Throughout their career, Croc Shop have toured heavily in support of their releases in both Europe and North America. They have appeared with such bands as Front 242, Project Pitchfork, Nitzer Ebb, The Damned, Numb, Switchblade Symphony, Clan of Xymox and Rammstein. The band has been described live as an "audio-visual-assault" with their multimedia video projections, stage antics and lighting.

World, Croc Shop's newest release, is a highly accessible piece of electronic dance music. Synth-pop backings merged with new wave melodies and intricate beat construction will make even the most die hard Croc Shop fan think they've discovered a great new band. As Outburn Magazine recently reported "If there is any band that deserves to be held up to the ears of the masses and praised who's time has come, it's Croc Shop."

Translated is the remix cd for "World" that showcases the bands latest tracks & stylistic experiments.

Amazing.
I really enjoyed this record. A friend gave me a copy that he got and I have been listening to it over and over. This is what music is SUPPOSED to be. Two thumbs through the roof!

Aderrick

Must have
The CD is great. I just can't get enough of the hard hitting sounds of electronica. It's all about track #6 and #9 I have told my friends about this CD. I played it at a party and they agree.
Good Job.

the Danse Assembly

Kicking remixes offa Croc Shop's newest Metropolis Release
1 assemblage 23 remix – what you’d expect from A23: thick, 4/4 accessible & straight ahead future-pop synths with Croc Shop’s (almost) Peter Murphy-styled clean vocals on top!

2 division#9 remix – a side-project from Mick Hale of Croc Shop - this one leans towards the Electro-Clash sound, Retro sounds abound with D#9’s trademark drumNbass beats.

3 headache remix – Richie Hawtin influenced - Plus 8 styled Detroit retro feel to this, which lends an almost Depeche Mode vibe to the Croc Shop vocals + synth sample.

4 dubok remix – lush synth-pop with flowing synths & phat bass sounds, the most “smooth” sounding mix on this cd. Brings in a New Order feel, even!

5 hellraver remix – Harder & more aggro than the rest – very danse friendly & almost “instrumental”; all from NYC’s dj Hellraver (of Terrorfakt.) GREAT Kick drum sound!

6 flesh field remix (edit) – This is a shortened version from the full length (World Met 267). Brooding, cinematic & dark – would work well next to even Ramstien or KMFDM!

7 crüxshadows remix – An exclusive from this leading “Darkwave”/Goth act – an epic of a remix with a good solid “slower” sound to the title track. Good for Goth / Rock Sets.

8 out out remix – A Blast from the past Out Out comes out of hiding to deliver a sinister early techno sounding masterpiece. Cut up vox & an almost Acid House bass line propel this mix!

9 mortmain( ) remix – noisy & cut up to shreds, this one is (strictly) for fans of Venetian Snares WARNING: Spasm-inducing rhythms; lissen with caution!!!!

0 terrorfakt remix – a more syncopated & slower paced version of Hellraver’s remix above - a good "closer”.

+ croc shop live – 2 cuts recorded live off the sounddesk in Toronto - pretty raw one can only imagine the mayhem onstage durring the show!!!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

A band that could give New Order a run for their money any day.
If you're old enough to have been in junior high school when New Order was a big, happenin' thing, and you recall all those painfully awkward junior high dances with thumping, pounding songs like Blue Monday, you can now relive all that danceable, thumping "fun" but with a band that could give New Order a run for their money any day.
Delivering uptempo, body-possessing Electronic synthpop, industrial electroclash and trance, Croc Shop has all the ingredients for the perfect brew; all except the tacky 80's wardrobe. There's no doubt that this band is up-to-date, fresh and "culturally-relevant" to today's club scene. So if you're pining to bust a move, this is the companion you need.

Great cd. The mixes are varied enough to keep the listener interested throughout.

For those who are new to Croc Shop, forget most reviews of what this band "sounds like" and think Front 242. A LOT. I'm usually not in to bands that may sound derivative of other but Croc Shop, despite all their obvious Front 242 influences, makes awesome dance music usually surpassing their forefathers in quality and ability. Get this, get the other Croc Shop cds, get them all. If you don't like them yet, they'll grow on you before you realize.
