The 5 EPs

The 1994 LP D.I. Go Pop was a shot heard ’round the corner, if that: a lost masterpiece of evocative blur channeling Joy Division's melodic gloom through My Bloody Valentine's blissful noise-swarms, with sample loops outgunning the guitars. It was born from the prescient EPs collected here, all recorded by the London trio Disco Inferno between 1992 and 1994. Yearning vocals battle the din; "Summer’s Last Sound" is built on bass and birdcalls. Elsewhere, shattering glass forms a rhythm; song structures coalesce and dissolve. It's a chance for new futurists to discover what they're still catching up to.
