Viet Cong ...

Bildergebnis für preoccupations band

finished to  be a band with this name. There were too many controversy about her name remaining the original Viet Cong with these words: "We are a band who wants to make music and play our music for our fans. We are not here to cause pain or remind people of atrocities of the past". Viet Cong made one of the best records in 2015 and they went out of my radar since they changed their name last year. Now they want to be named by Preoccupations and nothing changed in their music since then. It is an forgotten masterpiece from last year's record. The LP with the same title has it all: powerful noisy post-punk songs, a little bit of psychedelic and futuristic elements that sometimes reminds to Blade Runner. If I got closer to this record it would be in my last year rundown. Pure music to pure people. Try this.

"Viet Cong made one of the best records in 2015" - I agree. I heard they were changing their name but didn't know what they were called now. Thanks for keeping us informed Walter!

Their 2016 album is one of my favorites of 2016 and Degraded made my To 50 songs. Their mix of Post Punk and (spot on Walter) Futuristic sounds is really well represented on Degraded. There's a level of nervous paranoia which always hits a sweet spot with me.
