Modern Delusion - Days Of Us 12'' [2015]


After two releases on Doomtown Records, Wasteland tape and split 7" with Chresus Jist, this synth-oriented, gloomy post punk trio managed to craft twelve memorable songs for their highly anticipated debut LP.

"Days of Us" captures bleak atmosphere and isolation caused by living in the big city on some shitty part of the world and the 4-track lo-fi production doesn't hurt either. Wide range of influences come from some classic synth punk sounds like Devo, The Screamers or Units and there's definitely some obvious influence from Yugoslavian post-punk/new wave scene and bands such as Paraf and some contemporary stuff not unlike Jay Reatard's Lost Sounds. But this is not straight up death rock, post-punk or goth revival band, Modern Delusion build up their own trademark sound with strong melancholic touch and vocals soaked in reverb backed up with punk attitude and primitive raw sound.

Silkscreened sleeves come in two different colors; red and grey. Artwork by Dirt Sleeze.

Also, there's a new band called The Celetoids featuring 2/3 of Modern Delusion plus drummer from Chresus Jist. The trio plays a frantic, nervous and rabid kind of furious punk rock inspired by the first wave of British punk and obscure KBD gems, even outsider punk weirdos like Rudimentary Peni.

The Celetoids debut tape called Pupal Stage is released by Doomtown a few days ago along with the new Generacion Suicida tapes and Cal And The Calories tapes (this one is on Doomtown's sublabel Outsider Tapes). Get the new tapes here. Stream new DT releases here.
