Bin Liner Records (who produce the popular Bored Teenagers punk compilations) are releasing Torpedoes’ third album Black Museum:
Things you need to know about this very special release by Bin Liner:
Black Museum is a 17 track double vinyl album (the first 100 copies come with free CD version of the album and free download).
As with the Damned’s Black Album the first three sides are the core ‘concept’ while on side four Bin Liner bring you the band’s previous double A-side singles (each available on vinyl for the first time)
The band hail from Portsmouth, England and the music is post-punk. If you enjoy Bauhaus, The Cult, The Damned, Killing Joke, MSP, Nirvana, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Skids and SLF.
The songs on Black Museum cover themes about Europe (it’s people, its conflicts), Brexit and tellingly personal loss.
Side One features lead single Song For Europe (an exploration of Europe’s recent history), the gripping World War II monster of a song Gas Chamber, then back further to World War I with the standout White Feather and the side closes with In The Sky Razor’s remembrance of close friends, as well as about one of the fallen from the previous songs on this side.
Sides Two and Three explore the darkness at the heart of Europe. Land Of The Summer (“God don’t want you for a martyr” is a classic modern observation). Album closer This Is The End brings us to an end of sorts … where Europe is now?
