Ahhh....listening to this new single from London's Ulterior totally takes me back to my industrial/goth days! No, I never dyed my hair black or wore black lipstick or dressed in black dresses with leather and lace, but I found love for this kinda sound through Bauhaus (I heart you Peter Murphy) and Nine Inch Nails.... things of that nature! I went to a Christian Death concert once...... and there was blood on my hands! Saw Sisters of Mercy too!! I digress..... Ulterior makes me feel all dark and goth-like..... I love it!
Consisting of brothers Paul and Benn McGregor and with additional sonic malice from Mickey J Ellis and Paul Simmons, Ulterior release their malevolent second album The Bleach Room on January 7. The first single to be taken from the album is "The Locus of Control." In the words of frontman Paul McGregor the track was written "after a day reading medical papers and then seeing a piece on the news about religious female circumcision that angered me and disgusted me to my core."
