TECHNO ANIMAL / Ghosts (1991)

Techno Animal don't play techno, thankfully. I fell sorry for anyone that picks it up thinking that's what they're getting. Techno Animal is experimental musician Kevin Martin with K. Flesh (Justin K Broadrick) on programming duties. What that produces is the kind of heavy industrial hip hop that JKB side projects are known for, with a harsh ambient texture that scares the hell out of many listeners. It's jarring listening at times, but it's also one of the better undiscovered and bizarre industrial albums of the 90s. If it came on in a darkened dance hall the room would clear, and anyone left would be the person(s) I'd want to make friends with.
