"Whitehouse remind us what its all about with a remastered collection of classics spanning 1998 - 2007: Look up, look all around you, dump the fucking rubbish, and rise up. Listen to the sound of being alive...

Assuming that youve never heard of them, Whitehouse are thee arch, original power noise unit formed around William Bennett (vocals, electronics, percussion) and Philip Best (vocals, electronics) who met in London around 1982, and the pair would go on to establish one of the most notorious, probing, and necessary catalogues in the late 20th/early 21st century canon.

Other members joined them over that time, most infamously Peter Sotos, who appears here contributing lyrics to a pair of the collections most cutting numbers, Cruise (Force the Truth), and the 12 minute noise baptism Daddo, whilst the rest runs thru some crucial cuts such as the dance anthems Wriggle Like A Fuckign Eel and Cut Hands Has The Solution, the latter of which would prompt the emergence of Bennetts proceeding project, Cut Hands.

Still assuming youve not heard them before, well leave the rest for your discovery, as the hardcore fans will not doubt be able to recite the lyrics even in their deepest stupors. However they may well be attracted by Neil Summervilles new remastering of the original Denis Blackham work, and certainly by Mimsy Deblois collaged artwork." [boomkat]
