Cat #: SUB 40
The newest 7" from Sweden's Leather Nun features two compositions mining an atmospheric post-punk vein. "Primemover" uses a basic metal riff to underline restrained, understated vocals, while the flip maintains a slower tempo and showcases more demented lyrics. No revelations here.
-Steve Spinali (from Maximum Rocknroll #9, October/November 1983)
I'm not too hot on the B-side, but the A-side is killer. It's got a real heavy guitar that wrenches its way across the slow, tortuous course of the song, spitting feedback every which way. Added to that are Iggy/Bowie-type vocals, and production that mesmerizes and pulverizes your senses. This Swedish band has been around for years, and this is their first American release.
