With "Psychodalek" Gangwar has totally completed their transition from a
beleaguered electro goth outfit to an upbeat dance club phenomena.
"Psychodalek" is meant to be listened to in concert with a companion novel
written by the bands lead singer. Both are an intriguing exploration into the
mind of schizophrenic living in London and at times both seem to be almost
autobiographical in nature. It is quite obvious the effect that the rave and
gabba scenes in Europe have had upon Gangwar. Long complex percussion loops
dominate the music and are extensively mixed with less blatant percussion
rhythms to formulate a steady dance beat that isn't overpowering or tedious.
The music could almost be considered a type of New Age techno, tempered by the
age of the artists and their musical origins. This allows Gangwar to forsake
the traditional tenets of rave music and explore more of the ambient trance
region while still heavily relying on vocal work to round out their music.
Gangwar is: James Ray, John Bainbridge & Damon Vingoe
