Pain Teens - Born In Blood Born In Blood
Pop Used - LP TR 03 Trance Syndicate
1990 Original With Custom Insert. “Despite The Grim Title And Disturbing Cover Art, Houston's Pain Teens Combine Elements Of Goth Rock And Industrial Noise Into A Surprisingly Melodic Melange Likely To Appeal Even To Those Who Might Not Normally Consider Themselves Fans Of That Kind Of Music. Which Is To Say, All Is Not Doom And Gloom And Clattering Percussion (Although There's Plenty Of Both). The Teens Have A Firm Grasp On Song Structure And Bliss Blood's Vocals Are Always Pleasing, If Somewhat Remote (Both Sonically And Emotionally), No Matter What Dark Topic She May Be Singing About. There Are Exceptions, Of Course, Like The Psychedelic Frenzy Of "Pleasures Of The Flesh," Where She Practically Spits Out The Lyrics, And The Driving, Quasi-Metallic "Lady Of Flame." If There's A Breakout Track, It's Surely "The Way Love Used To Be," A Haunting Ode To Romance Featuring Middle Eastern Strings And Tape Loops (As Do Many Of The Songs). "Desu Evol Yaw" Is Essentially A Backward Version Of The Same Number; The Music Surges Forward While The Lyrics Unravel Back. The Overall Effect Is Akin To Latter-Period Swans, In Which Jarboe's Smooth Vocals Added A Heaping Helping Of Sugar To The Band's Otherwise Strong Medicine. And Just As Swans Covered Brit Rock Perennials Like "Can't Find My Way Home," The Teens Offer Up An Elegiac Version Of David Bowie's "She Shook Me Cold." - Kathleen C.
