Collapsing Scenery - Stress Positions (2xLP - Green/White Swirl Vinyl)

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

Collapsing Scenery is the meeting of two fertile and febrile minds, Don DeVore (Ink & Dagger, Lilys, The Icarus Line, Amazing Baby) and Reggie Debris. Together they straddle the gap between music, art, film and politics, seamlessly moving between each with the same ease at which they traverse the globe, soaking up experiences and immersing themselves in different cultures. 

Since they formed in 2013 “under a pall of paranoia and disgust” they haven’t stopped moving. They’ve recently collaborated with Beastie Boys producer/collaborator Money Mark, Jamaican dancehall legend Ninjaman, and no-wave pioneer James Chance. The band also has remixes out or on the way from Genesis P-Orridge (Psychic TV, Throbbing Gristle), Jennifer Herrema (Royal Trux), Uniform, Youth Code, Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance), and more. 

The band’s debut full-length ‘Stress Positions’ (out June 28th, 2019) is a glorious collision of futurist electro, glacial goth tones, techno, and post-punk recorded using analog electronics: samplers, step- sequencers, synths and drum machines. 

Aesthetically it recalls the early pioneering synth-punk of bands such as Human League, Screamers, and The Normal, when the most forward thinking punks looked to the twenty-first century. Dig deeper and it reveals an articulate, highly politicized collection that’s far from nostalgia for the recent past. Quite the opposite: ‘Stress Positions’ is forward-facing with strong state-of-the-world lyrical content. 

Collapsing Scenery are entirely self- sufficient, sonic buccaneers sailing the seas with piratical intent.
