On a new seven-inch split on Acid Etch Recordings, subversive ex-Whatever Brains synth-punks Bodykit and physical noise techno revitalizer Drippy Inputs offer smeared, decaying electronic punk outlined in jet black marker. Their freak talents are well paired. Playing fast and sloppy numbers with dance music conventions, Drippy Inputs, who also records and performs as Floor Model, is simpatico with other weirdo underground beat icons like Profligate and Unicorn Hard On. His tunes crank distortion to violent, deafening levels, yet they usually provide a shred of broken groove to grip, provided you can hold on. Bodykit is a bit more song-oriented, which isn't saying much—think shamanic punk tunes cloaked in thick layers of electronic debris. If you're looking to understand the ever-expanding relationship between punk and electronic music, this is a great place to start. With Mall Prowler.
