PUNK PLANET, Chicago, IL (issue#57 / Sept+Oct 2003):

TURN PALE - 'Kill the Lights' CD

These guys are cranking the post-punk, plodding bass, evil-sounding music as dark as anyone these days.  I was taken back to the early 80's, when Christian Death ws shocking parents into states of doom, and The Birthday Party were pummeling us over the head with their distinct brand of battery.  These guys make Interpol look like wimps!  Nice and twisted for a spring night full of thunderstorms when your neighbors can't tell that you've got it up too loud.
