Experimental techno might be a fairly simplistic account of this vividly color clear yellow 7". Nothing else I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing can quite measure up to the level of audacity this single evokes. It's definitely not even vaguely in the industrial realm nor the dance techno genre but instead lies somewhere in the middle off to one side near the music that tends to avoid a category label. You can't dance to it, you can't meditate to it, in fact you most of the time begin to wonder if it's a government audio experiment that somehow escaped into European vinyl market to test it's progress on the masses. Whatever Smersh truly is escapes even me with it's bewildering and sickenly entrancing sound.

Smersh are: Mike "Specs" Mangino & Chris "Tickles" Shepard
