Album Notes
Illusion of Safety Inside Agitator (Complacency)
The Chicago area's prime Noise-ician's new release is another in a never-ending series of uncompromising and exquisitely-crafted tonalities. Anyone familier with the previous releases from these reigning Kings of Pain will find this CD to be more thoughtful and conceptual than other offerings. The title refers to a favorite theme of founder/leader Dan Burke, namely, a ghastly glimpse into the aberrations of the human psyche. This collection of half-rhythmic beat/collages and half ambient-noise reflect the dichotomy within us all: the age-old struggle between the violent and the sublime, the Dark & the Light. The ambient passages represent the internal aspects of the subconcious mind, whereas the rhythmic/sound-bite passages refer to the outwardly negative manifestations of the conscious mind. Differing from most I.O.S. releases, this CD is more statement-orientated. Meant as sort of a follow-up to their earlier release. In 70 Countries (which is an audio analysis of state-sponsored torture around the world), Inside Agitator is a conceptual excursion into Burke's degree in Psychology. Though the level of difficulty in I.O.S.'s oeuvre keeps their local following relatively small, these seasoned experts have been in business for nearly 10 years and have released dozens of cassettes, LP's and CDs. They have toured the U.S. and Europe numerous times, recently playing to a national radio audience in Switzerland on their last Europ-tour. Exceptionally gifted within the genre they work, their unusual 'music' is an acquired taste and not for the faint-of-heart. Scott Marshall
