“.... das elektronisch anmutende Pulsieren ihrer Klangvisionen entführt in intergalaktische Räume, in Zeiten, in denen die ‘Krone der Schöpfung’ zu Staub zerfallen ist. In einer Alien-Disco voller LEMscher Lemuren zappeln keine eiweißhaltigen Ekelgeiler, die sich Menschen schimpfen, sondern höher organisierte Wesen aus reiner Materie. Das rituell-rhythmische Beben, Wummern, Knirschen und Stampfen ist weder industriell noch postatomar, sondern fremd und andersartig; seine schreckliche, erregende Schönheit liegt vielleicht gerade in dieser irgendwie auch beruhigenden Abwesenheit des Menschlichen (das hat fast schon wieder etwas ‚Humanes’). Sind das die Bewußtseinsströme eines Elektronengehirns? Metaphysische Landschaften?
Neben den MNEMONISTS streuen ZOVIET-FRANCE den wirksamsten Dünger für den Wildwuchs der Phantasie; ihre gleichzeitig hyperfuturistischen und urtürmlichen Klangbilder aus dem kollektiven Unterbewußtsein laden dazu ein, daß jede/r sie mit persönlichen Assoziationen illustriert. Solche Musik wirkt wie ein Attentat gegen den vorgekauten Stumpfsinn modischen Computergeratters....“ [Bad Alchemy über Zoviet France, 1986]
