Caustic - I Can't Believe We're Re-releasing This Crap (CD)
Release Date: 03/13/12
Rare is the artist where every album, nee every song, is instantly and unequivocally considered a classic. Rarer still does that artist reach and maintain a peak level in terms of both popularity and critical acclaim. Caustic, undoubtedly, is such an artist, and Metropolis is now re-releasing Caustic's first two albums Unicorns, Kittens, & Shit and Booze Up and Riot, originally from the Crunch Pod label, in a combined and expanded 2CD version entitled I Can't Believe We're Re-Releasing This Crap. 2006's controversial (and quickly sold out) Unicorns, Kittens, & Shit established Caustic as The Artist To Watch For Awhile Until The Next VNV Came Out, with eternally classic cuts 'Emmanuel Lewis Handjob', 'MMM Papscraper I Love You', and 'Love That Taint' propelling Matt Fanale's trademark raw, punk electronic sound into the forefront of several sub-sub-genres of industrial. Booze Up and Riot, with its legendary title track and others such as 'Industrial Moustache Ride', and 'Mutilate' followed in 2007, creating even more legion of fan for Caustic. I Can't Believe We're Re-Releasing This Crap contains all of the original tracks from the two albums plus 10 bonus tracks originally found on various compilations, EPs, and other rare releases. Also included in the liners/digital booklet is a link for 20+ remixes, including the original 3 mixes found on UK&S from Mimetic, Keef Baker, and Cenotype, plus remixes from Grendel, God Module, Iris, Alter Der Ruine, XP8, and more. Guest appearances on the albums include the likes of Combichrist's Andy LaPlegua, Assemblage 23's Tom Shear, Chemlab's Jared Louche, and underground comic legend Doug Stanhope. Experience the magic and revisit Caustic's early, sublimely brilliant days of decadence, depravity, and dick jokes with I Can't Believe We're Re-Releasing This Crap. Then you can die happy.
