Cocaine Death is a compilation of three of Prurient's most sought-after cassette releases: 2007's' Cocaine Death, Caribbean Overdose and Tylenol Murders, eventually compiled as Cocaine Death for a CD release in 2008. This is the first time this collection has ever been available on vinyl, now fully remastered for the format. Cocaine Death brings together several strands and signifiers from the Prurient catalog, containing some of its most visceral and experimental works, alongside some of its most evocative.
From the arpeggiated/submerged noise of opener "Pretext (Bahamian Burial)" to the padded, pulsating closer "Postscript (Coke Cunts)" the material here explores the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape; escape being a myth. Cocaine Death (originally C-10 packaged in an envelope, limited to 46 copies) is one of the most sought-after Prurient cassettes.
The content is based on the glamour and destruction of toxic nightlife. Caribbean Overdose (originally a C-10, packaged in a standard shell package and limited to 100 copies) explores a different but strangely direct topic of the sexual reproductive life of plants. Further examination into the life of scientific advancement and education. Tylenol Murders (originally a C-10, packaged in an oversized envelope and limited to 10 copies) takes the sounds and concepts of the aforementioned releases and expands the sounds to further limits of cracked static, strained vocals and strange melodic loops.
