five years in the making, the dangerous class is 17 tracks of audio madness bound together by themes of sex, drugs, and rebellion. a wild mix of live instrumentation, programmed electronics, and collaged sample fragments, the dangerous class is the soundtrack to a world of wayward youth given to deviance, chemical transcendence and violent transgression. the dangerous class is stitched together from the detritus of a century of recorded music, rampaging its way through countless sounds and styles - one moment it is double-time drums accompanying glitched-out rockabilly, the next swinging jazz scat overtop dirty, blown-out synths. almost no musical genre is left unexplored - surf, garage rock, speed metal, big band horn numbers, speak-easy jazz, techno thumpers, organ dirges, chamber music, bollywood sitar psychedelia, string ensembles, groovy lounge pieces and more. all of it woven into catchy pop-tunes where sunshine-voiced singers belt out infectious melodies while craggy old voices weave a narrative of decadence and forbidden pleasures. NOTE: due to an mishap at the pressing plant the tracklisting on cd does not correspond to the tracks listed on cover.
