"There's definitely something real big taking charge here! Mr. Raumschmiere flashes his two-finger British fuck-off pose as if it just took just two to do all the work - straight up punk attitude. His new EP/CD titled The Great Rock'n'roll Swindle doesn't just gleam with presence of mind but actually ends up being a great big lie. What we have here rocks and rolls in quite a major way. So where's the swindle? The opening title track knocks down pins as seldom heard before. It belongs in every real DJ's first-aid kit for those moments when the crowd is waning in need of a boost. The unmistakable gnarz-bass battles venomous melodies in a high-tech web. It's a track for all thugs with a prep-school degree. First slam it in your face and then think about it later. Sami Koivikko doesn't fuck around with the remix long, shamelessly plunging the scenery into a rave-mood without loosing the bounce. Up next and once again there's the techno-punk T.Raumschmiere: his fuck-off fingers pound the 'enter' key', hitting the system with flatulent bass noises that burst into soundscape crackles, which he probably borrowed from label-mate Apparat ? 'bow down big man to get your credit'! In the end Raumschmiere and Rechenzentrum wrestle for the correct anti-posturing of slightly dubbed basslines coming from the adjacent hall along with absurd quotes out of the clothing chest. You're even getting cut-ups from a metal guitar! Think they're having fun with us? The CD contains six tracks that have been released on different 12"es before, plus two new tracks. It does not contain the remixes, which are only available on the 12" EP."
