The Hood ‎– Cooler Than Thou (US 12″)

Straight from Discogs;

“John Hood was a legendary nyc party promoter-doorman and writer. The Hood was his project for the Beth B. film/soundtrack Various – Salvation! (Original Soundtrack).”

So you get some New York underground vibes with a emphasis on Cooool. Co-written and programmed by drummer and Swans member Roli Mosimann and produced by Ivan Ivan.

Breaks and heavy beats rebound over clear synth lines on “Cooler Than Thou”, the vocals remind me of Shriekback. Ground breaking stuff.

“Criminal Kiss” is almost proto industrial, very interesting, fast and very short. I’m glad the Extended Version (all 4 mins of it!) is here adding some Depeche metal samples, the definite version.
