"The dystopian frontier is near, but never fear. In the new era of endlessness where we hide ourselves as humans among androids, there is hope. On Endless Bummer, the second album from Pink Skull, the producer duo of Julian Grefe and Justin Geller rip out the tracking chip and jump the grid on a quest for purity among putridity. Lysergic traces from Pink Skull's electro-fried debut Zeppelin 3 LP reappear on Endless Bummer in ghostly tape delays and trigger hits but this album favors the man-made over the machine. Grefe's vocals, both sung and sampled in harmony, humanize lead off track 'Peter Cushing' and 'Oh, Monorail', while the expanded 'live' Pink Skull line up of drums, bass, and guitar animalize the skittish acid tracks 'Chicken Inside Egg' and 'Gonzo's Cointreu'. Where Bummer mellows slightly, Skull's spirit animal Geller takes tracks like 'Wheet' and 'Fired, So Fired' into outer kosmische territories. The result of this balance parallels the Bummer along the various lines of PIL's Metal Box, The Orb's Pomme Fritz EP, the tropicalia Dada-ism of Tom Ze, and Eno & Cluster. Living / breathing electronic music made beyond the computer screen for bigger screens, Bummer could easily soundtrack a remake of Videodrome as well as it could a Kubrickian classic." Includes newspaper insert. Covers come in blue, red or green, each with a unique "bummer" word letterpressed on the front.
