Tonight: Wolf Eyes and Absolute Body Control at the MHOW


The guy in middle is Fuckface. No really.

Noisemasters General Wolf Eyes graciously turn over the spotlight (or, given the circumstances, lack thereof) to Absolute Body Control, the icy-cold pioneers of Belgian electronic bummer-dance, formed more than 20 years ago and finally getting around to playing their first U.S. show. A sharp, throbbing early-’80s link to electronic, noise, goth, industrial, and Suicide-style art-punk, the reuinited ABC has been hitting the festival circuit for a little while now. With the stiff boogie of analog coldwaver Martial Canterel and the gurgling soul-noise of Carlos Giffoni. — CHRISTOPHER WEINGARTEN.
