Having talked to Mike Crooker, the guitarist of this band, he describes Indian Rope Burn in one word, Irony, how aptly put. This release reminds me of a punky Thrill Kill Kult, with guitars and live drums. They poke fun of drug usage, sex, the MTV generation while putting out a very good, clean sounding product. The album liner is covered with bananas wearing condoms, and graphics of topless women cavorting around. Definitely a band who knows how to poke fun of themselves and life in general.

My favorite tracks include 'techno-boredom' which includes a background drumbeat sounding very familiar to the NIN Head Like a Hole backbeat, although heavily layered. Very good dancy track with Videodrome samples, and television generation lyrics. I also enjoyed 'crying muscle' an all spoken word sample track poking fun at television ministries, and their scam methods. If you like the light to medium guitar industrial sound, with a slight taste of dance and punk, check out this CD
