Whitehouse ‎– "Psychopathia Sexualis" (Come Organisation ‎– WDC 883027 1982

Back in 1980, the general population were relatively free from choice and information overload. Horror movies were still frightening, and one had to actively search out music such as this. Consequently music wasn't as devalued as it today, with the advent of the everything now culture of the post-internet world. Murderers were generally seen as horrific figures, but with the torrent of information, and understanding of Human behaviour, we now see these people as pathetic rather than just psychopathic. This lessens the impact of this record for the modern ears somewhat. Having said that, play this record to the most of the population of the iPhone miniverse, and you would still get disturbed looks of classic incomprehension. Yes, musically, it still has the ability to fuck up people's worlds, and make them wanna smash this cassette in fits of ignorant anger. Which is the main aim of Whitehouse's ear piercing noise. Most of the tracks are introduced by some eastern bloc sounding Psycho expert; probably Dr. Richard von Krafft-Ebing*. I dunno if it is he, or Mr Bennett who didn't know the real name of the Boston Strangler(Albert de Salvo). All the other killers get their birth names, except he?! Plenty of Wasp frying synth abuse permeates this tape, accompanying the standard crazed screeching from W. Bennett. There are plenty of uncomfortable moments, and room clearing cacophony;- guaranteed to form the ice at parties, or even better, start a fight amongst the Townies/chavs at the local discothéque. They don't make 'em like this anymore.........no, wait a minute, Whitehouse still make 'em like this. in fact so do, Ramleh, Consumer Electronics, and many many more do; not available in shops. *'Psychopathia Sexualis' is based on the classic medical work by Dr. Richard von Krafft-Ebing, but inspired by the '120 Days of Sodom' by the Marquis de Sade, whose spirit lives on…?
