ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The second release from Glenn Branca's new record label SYSTEMS NEUTRALIZERS, "Euphobia" was recorded Live in the studio with no overdubs at SMASH STUDIOS NYC by Ben Lindell and Mike Fryer. It was mixed and mastered by Reg Bloor and Libby Fab.

THE PARANOID CRITICAL REVOLUTION, the project of guitarist Reg Bloor, has been playing the NYC and Northeast club scene since 2006. The self-released debut CD "Death of the Cool" came out in December 2007 just in time to play ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES, "A Nightmare Before Christmas" in Minehead, England. The band played at the South By Southwest Music Festival in March 2009. Their second CD "Euphobia" was released in 2010. It reached #1 on WXDU Duke University Radio's Loud Rock chart for the week ending August 8, 2010

In addition to PCR, Guitarist Reg Bloor has been playing with Glenn Branca (to whom she is married) since 2000. She played in Branca's Symphony No. 12, Lesson No. 3, his rock band Branca/Bloor, in his trio, eventually becoming Concertmaster for his Symphony No. 13 for 100 Guitars. She can be heard on Branca's new CD "The Ascension: The Sequel" and recently performed as part of the world premier of his Symphony No. 15 "Running Through The World Like An Open Razor" (Music for Strange Orchestra) in NYC. In the late 90's she was a founding member of the Boston-based band TWITCHER, who released the self-produced CD "Leg of Lamb of God" in 1999 and appeared on the soundtrack for the Troma film "Terror Firmer".

The album also features drummer Libby Fab who has since left the band.

"…leave(s) the starting gate with all pedals to the metal—especially the distortion and kick drum pedals—and the heavily effected screeching, flailing drumming, and calculatedly manic time mangling continue more or less unabated until the end."
Barry Cleveland - Guitar Player

"Seething with treble, technically formidable, and crashingly dissonant, Paranoid Critical Revolution was another of those acts that create far more of a racket than would seem possible for a two piece."
Nate Dorr - Impose Magazine

"It’s like part black metal, part no wave, and part nuclear holocaust."
MP Lockwood - No Core

"Viscerally powerful, musical, precise. Their wordless "songs" followed each other rapidly, no time or anything else was wasted."
Ken Weathersby - The Neutral

"EVIL guitar / drum sickness, a phenomenally loud shrieking beast...instrument as pure apocalypse."
Cloudboy - Rottenmeats

"Whoa. That was pretty intense, to say the least."
Mike Watt - The Watt From Pedro Show

"I'm digging the Paranoid Critical Revolution CD - (Reg)'s a killer gtrist and libby is amazing as well."
Thurston Moore - Sonic Youth
