Tbilisi-based Goslab initiate Gogi Dzozuashvili (Gogi.Ge.org), together with more Goslab members make up Post Industrial Boys, and this is their second album for Thomas Brinkmann's max.Ernst. It took over two years to collect all the snapshots and blueprints that finally assembled the Post Industrial Boys experience. This project is infused with deep drama, which sometimes sounds on the verge of fatalism and decadence, with Gogi channeling and directing the post-trauma with six different vocalists and other lyricists spread out over twenty tracks. The beginning of the Post Industrial Boys project began with the track "Benzilina" -- from the first solo Gogi project, recorded in the beginning of the '90s, somewhere in a Tbilisi squatted studio. This project was also probably the very beginning of the mutual playground and collaboration which later formed into the group Goslab. Post Industrial Trauma is a reflection of Gogi's collaborative spirit, embodying a collection of many different stories and dramas with one story blending into the next, creating a nice fusion. Amusing, easy-listening melodies and lyrics blend with a palpable modest sadness, creating a post traumatic carpet. This record is big on drama, like a movie based on a true story. Features songs from the likes of Thomas Brinkmann, Lou Reed (cover of "Walk On the Wild Side") and Kurt Vonnegut. Sophisticated and smoked out electronic crossover pop that will speak to fans of Mum, Gentle People, Saint Etienne, Farben, Stereolab. etc.
