Digitalis Purpurea – 30 Hole & Fred Perry (EP – Danse Macabre)Posted on 02/07/12
Digitalis Purpurea is a flower our grandparents commonly knew as foxglove. The foxglove got transposed into a very weird music band from Italy. The debut album of this project is a kind of cyber-rock free interpretation.
The main elements that appear are the provocative and porn-minded lyrics. Over the years it’s a recipe that has been used and abused in the underground scene and yet it still fascinates some new bands and (hopefully for them) also fans. Nothing seems weird enough to this collective like symbolized by a few extracts of their lyrics ‘if this song had a dick you would suck it hard’ or yet ‘I’m the groom of sound and the lover of noise’. Digitalis Purpurea rapidly appears to be a hybrid between Lords Of Acid and Sheep On Drugs.
The debut songs are quite convincing. The mix of electronics, punk and industrial works perfectly on “30 Hole And Fred Perry”, “Pussy Is Pret A Porter, Girls Ass Is For Elites”, “The Sky Is The Biggest Cunt Of Them All” and “I Don’t Give A Fuck Ye-Yea-Yeah”. The titles say enough about the provocative fun of the band. Musically it moves all over different musical edges, but it simply adds to the force of the release.
I have a little preference for, “The Sky Is The Biggest Cunt Of Them All”, which reminds me a bit of Zombie Girl. Electronics and guitar are in perfect harmony while the unavoidable porn samplings are resonating in the background.
Digitalis Purpurea sounds like sex and rock’n’roll! The good-old recipe is still working today.
