I don’t know who Nina Harker is but I want to meet her. Subterranean French imrpint Le Syndicat des Scorpions (in cahoots with
La République des Granges and Animal Biscuit) present a much-needed vinyl pressing of this mysterious, difficult, sensory overload of a debut album… a kind of whacked-out hot-and-cold-wave sung in half dozen different languages, toggling between swampy sick-poppy euro-pop (‘Mussen Wir Noch Aufbluhen?’ splits the difference between Saada Bonaire and the uptight drama of a genuine NDW driller-killer), off-key minimal drum-machine death-folk (one tune sounds like AC Marias if Bruce Gilbert had forgotten to tune his guitar), and rarefied Vrystaete-ish psycho-ambience. Every track feels unique and the journey the album takes from beginning to end - culminating in the massed-vocal Iberian drone-scape of ‘Muto’ - is wholly unpredictable. Too good. Presented in a suitably chic sleeve with off-centre die-cut peephole. The kind of record you dream of chancing across thirty years after it was released but even better, it’s here, and it's now. Easy to forget… WE ARE LIVING IN A GOLDEN AGE.
