Review/ Dynamite Club: "Fusion Era"

img  Tobias
Okay, so Dynamite Club are neither the most eloquent, the most refined, the most tasteful nor the most beautiful band around. When group members really take their time, tracks will be two-and-a half minutes long. If they don’t, they’re half a minute long. Their songs are called “www.porn.net” or “Besame My Love” – we’ll leave the details of lyrical content to your imagination.

To dig up a good old chliched proverb, however, the music is what counts and the Dynamites have quite a bit to show for it. Their blend of Jazz, chilled-out Cocktail tunes, slapped Funk licks, Grindcore and Deathmetal is both a bloody, messy, martial and masochistic musical melange as well as a trivial, twisted, technically virtuoso tantrum and it is furiously fast and fericiously entertaining.

It is the combination of these different and divergent elements into a coherent and surreally charming cocktail which turns “Fusion Era” into a welcome diversion from daily worries: Put it on, pull up your stereo to maximum volume for twenty minutes and dance and scream on top of your lunges until everything makes sense again.

The pleasures of dabbling in deconstruction and mindblowing noise certainly enjoy priority above structural complexity or smart, minutely fine-tweaked arrangements here. What counts is not how much food for thought may be contained in these notes, but how much energy you can draw from them. Besides, in an interview, the band have already made it be known that they care little for starting fully fleged theoretical debates in the press: “Don’t know if our music is serious enough to warrant an offensive misunderstanding.”
