Imagine Steve Albini and Mike Patton running a demented circus (into the ground). Applied Ignorance features plenty of organ-dominated, scary, freaky weirdness here. Lots of shrieky fun, a veritable theater of phantasmagoria. Any vocals are near-incoherent. Lovely track titles, as well. Almost gothy in

Overview

Imagine Steve Albini and Mike Patton running a demented circus (into the ground). Applied Ignorance features plenty of organ-dominated, scary, freaky weirdness here. Lots of shrieky fun, a veritable theater of phantasmagoria. Any vocals are near-incoherent. Lovely track titles, as well. Almost gothy in parts.

Anyone who thinks new music is dead, scrape the smegma off your contact-lenses and check out these freaks from Oakland. The Phantom Limbs' debut album, ''Applied Ignorance'', just about captures all the carnival chaos of their legendary live shows (although you run a much lower risk of getting red makeup and Wesson Oil smeared all over yourself). All the best trappings of both punk and death-rock but weirder than either-- with manic fury, relentless drums, wicked guitar-feedback, some scarily giddy keyboard hooks, and a general glaze of disturbed humor. Ever see somebody laugh wildly and smile while their gums are bleeding? Yeah, that kind of evil-clown perkiness. Picks: ''Shut Up Old Man'', ''Shake-A-Baby'', ''Hot Knives & Hornets''.
