Kebab – We Live in a System


Kebab existed within a weird junction between Europe’s waning post-punk explosion and the new wave of electronic synthesia. With a vocal sound obviously close to The Slits, the Belgian quartet remain more youthful, subtle, and haematic, fusing drum-machine maximalia with actue guitar riffery to create their strange sinusoidal centre. Remarkably, they listed Crass as a main influence, information I gleaned thanks to the beautiful Soft Spot reissue containing their incredibly rare Life is a Joke EP (1982), unreleased studio tracks, and their demo cassette. HUP!
