about

Re-Issue Of Classic Debut Album By London Outfit ROC

ROC REVIEWS

VOX
To account for them as just 'weird' would be top overlook the fact that they've succeeded in touching aesthetic bases as diverse as Madonna, Ministry, Prince, Jon Spencer, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Plastikman and Black Grape, while making a personalised musical statement about 'the-times-we-live-in' that's actually listenable. It could be one of those Portishead-type albums that comes in from the left field and looms massive. 9/10

MELODY MAKER
I think I'm in love with them, whoever they are, because they know me so well. And you. They understand you, too. You've never met but they have read your mind. In the moments when you stop thinking, or when your thoughts pass beyond reason, in your red mist, your grisly loneliness or your sensual bliss, ROC are there, unseen, sequinning your skin with electrodes fed directly into their tape machine. ROC operate in regions where language holds no sway

NME
An album that changes shape and discovers new disguises at each turn, that lyrically flirts with God but shags the Devil on the side, an album that refuses to allow any single mood to settle for long

WIRE
"ROC" is a brave piece of work

MUSIC WEEK
Album of the week
A storming debut album by this west country outfit who are impossible to categorise. The extraordinarily diverse set veers from electronic ambience to slick pop tunes. An early candidate for album of the year.
