"Twitchy Insomniacs Dub"

Fresh and hypnotic helter skelter for skeptic rock fans. Look for this EP to become a time-honored release within the Neutral Mute catalog and an instant favorite among the backlash massive. Ranging from restless electronic punk to twitchy insomniac dub, it's an amphetamine fueled cutting edge rock set with raw substance. Swaggering vocals vibrating with cynicism are set over a chaotic wall of rowdy mashed up musical eclectic-ness. Roc-Sac" packs alarming amounts of Nervous energy where rousing beats meet static distortion, dirty bass lines, and sulphuric guitars. - Insound

"Spartan Punkish Contstruct"

Energetic like coffee-drinking, Neutral Mutes Roc-Sac is informed by both the punk aesthetic (strongly filtered through electro sensibilities) and offbeat new wave attitude a la The Talking Heads. Raw, in-your-face attitude blending beat-ladenness and thin but gritty distortive guitar and fast push rock energy make Neutral Mute fun and punchy and boasting a bit of a sneer across the mouth area. The titular track on the EP, for example, is a streamlined, simple and simply effective skinny spear of grungy and crispy punk wave. King Killer is another lean piece that calls to mind Mindless Self Indulgence but with less bombastic stop-start and less over-the-topness. Neutral Mute generates a spartan punkish construct of slick beats and raw rawk guitar, with tons of tude, for a unique flavor that will find appeal in both the rock and electronic scenes. - Raves


Neutral Mute, Engine 7"
Neutral Mute, ROCSAC EP


Feeling a bit camera shy


ROC-SAC is the debut EP by Neutral Mute, aka D. McNany. Ranging from restless electronic punk to twitchy insomniac dub, the EP packs an alarming amount of nervous energy into its 14 minute duration. Frenetic rave-ups "Doo Right" and "Puls-Sac" set the pace, but "No No No" is the highlight. The song bears a slight resemblance to Faust's classic Krautrock ballad "Jennifer," but with an insistent, thumping one-note bass line which gives the song a manic gone-off-its-meds edge.
Neutral Mute comes to life on stage as a power trio courtesy of revolving members of the Run-Roc family which include Gerhardt Fuchs (Turing Machine) and Lance Carter (Bill Laswell/Sonny Sharrock) on drums.

This is Neutral Mute and Run-Roc's first record to be issued digitally, which is appropriate given that Neutral Mute's first 7" was the inaugural release on the label back in 2002. Since then, Run-Roc has emerged as Manhattan's most promising new label. []
