Alien Sex Fiend - Nocturnal Emissions Album
Surprise is Alien Sex Fiend's hallmark, and the 9 track album "Nocturnal Emissions", the first released on the band's own 13th Moon Records label, is no exception. Far and away their most futuristic effort, yet quintessentially fiendish, "Nocturnal Emissions" flows and feints with a seamless sense of cool. It's a curvaceous cybernetic jamboree, opening with 1996's groundbreaking single "Evolution", a dancefloor juggernaut full of otherworldly blips, bleeps and bastard beats and clearly the obvious precursor to this album's delightful mastery of techno/ambient sorcery. By closing concoction "Sticky" it's clear that the space race is on, the destination: your mind! As always, "Nocturnal Emissions" is only the latest launch pad for this band's ongoing exploration of the new sonic terrain. Evolve or die is the mantra of choice, and Alien Sex Fiend show no signs of extinction.
Trainspotter corner : The track "Garbage" is ASF's answer back to the band Garbage's B-side of the "Stupid Girl" single where Shirley Manson sings "You're an Alien Sex Fiend"...
