Blank-wave Arcade

Author: Keith York
10/10/2000 | Heckler magazine | Album Review
Sounding like something out of 1979, but in reality brand-spanking new on the scene, The Faint's latest release is rooted in pre-techno-pop 80's herky jerky power electronics. Showing familiarity with early releases by Human League (Reproduction, Travelouge) but with Gang of Four's attitude, Blank-Wave Arcade is the missing link between no-wave, new-wave and Richard Hell's "blank generation". It's hard to believe that 21 years ago synths and guitars were meeting in the wake of the Sex Pistols marketing of Anarchy as fashion. Here we are and it's as fresh as the first go-around when I was in middle school
