Disco Inferno biography
DISCO INFERNO are one of the early post-rock bands that rose to proeminence on the English scene of the late 80s and early 90s. Initially a quartet consisting of Ian Crause (guitars, vocals), Paul Wilmott (bass), Rob Whatley (drums) and Daniel Gish (keyboards), the band soon became a trio when Daniel Gish left to join BARK PSYCHOSIS. The band debuted with a single release in 1990, soon to be accompanied by a full studio album in 1991. Along with the EP released in 1992, all these were later compiled in 1995 on the release titled "In Debt", which can be considered the best introduction to the band. After two more studio albums in 1994 and 1996 and more singles / EPs, the band split in 1996 leaving behind a short but influential catalogue and a consistent public acclaim.

Musically, what DISCO INFERNO did was to make the transition from the experimental and artistic side of alternative rock from the late 70s and the 80s (post-punk, dream pop, noise rock, goth-rock, etc.) to a new, enriched form of rock that was called "post-rock". This meant an emphasis on stern beats, exceptionally repetitive structures, techno-ambient sounds and a lot of sampling. The song-oriented format once broken, the pieces flow one into another hipnotically with very subtle variations, transforming their releases into one extended piece, providing an extended, continuous experience. While the classic post-rock from the late 90s and early 00s went much forther and offered a much more unified, easily recognizable trademark sound, the early English post-rock scene has to be credited with providing the essential breakthrough. DISCO INFERNO should be checked out alongside GLENN BRANCA, TALK TALK, BARK PSYCHOSIS, SEEFEEL, PRAM, STEREOLAB, .O.RANG etc., and they should also appeal to fans of Krautrock bands such as NEU! and CAN or to fans of recent post-rock bands who employ beats and electronica, like PIVOT, 65DAYSOFSTATIC, LYMBYC SYSTYM or KINDER.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars Browsing through my prog/rock collection of pretty well rated releases in this PA site, which I have acquired due to the same , I skipped some but left DISCO INFERNO-"The 5 EPs", 2011, which as far as I remember was recommended by fellow reviewer LearsFool, well Kudos!

For starters what caught my attention, I have to confess, is the fact that it is not stuck in the borders of the quiet repetitive Prog's protocols, which by itself, is highly refreshing. I will try to explain what is going inside this 5 EPs collection.

Kind of a mix between Nick Cave's up front, lo-fi recorded, explosiveness (his both highly refined yet raw Punk 80's music, not his untouchable lyrics of course), this happening here and there, some splashes of David Sylvian's Japan like mode of story telling singing, lots of trashy experimental electronics, trashy guitars, Sigur Ros' early and Cabaret Voltaire's polished "post-Punk" attitude, even "Zappaezques" gentle reminders and yeah, it has its TALK TALK kind of momentums (here and there).

It will show its timing in its music composition, so feel forewarned and be prepared for a joyful and amazingly "un-cliched" trip to those post 80's, less obsessed with what their ancestors craved for.... FAME!

Prog sub-genre wise, its experimental nature and focused carelessness could appeal also to the RiO enthusiasts but its post-80's touch, although perfectly suited, may scare half of them.

A daring array of songs that never cease to offer thrills and intelligent solutions, yet it will show its age more than once, as I have mentioned more than once. Aside from that, a keeper in my selection and the kind that makes you look for more of DISCO INFERNO's other releases.

****4.5 PA STARS.

Review by LearsFool
Collaborator Post/Math Rock Team

5 stars First of all: I don't even know how to start this review. I could say that Disco Inferno is one of the best bands you never heard of, or how post rock doesn't even begin to describe them, or how they're the best plunderphonics group ever without even focusing on being a plunderphonics group, or "Flipping faders, Batman! These three Brits covered so much ground and always sounded so beautiful and perfect!", or mentioning how this goes above and beyond the great experimental EPs and killer collections thereof in the '90's... or I could string all that together into one long run on of gush for these demigods.

Released over three years in original format, and first collected by an enterprising internet bootlegger in '99, these fifteen cuts touch a mind boggling myriad of genres and styles and master each and every one as they are subsumed into a eudaimonic whole. I'll just list: post rock, post punk, plunderphonics, electronics, britpop, noise pop, noise rock, acoustica, ambient, IDM, concrete. It was always ethereal, always experimental, always flawless. Nature and urban samples and electronic washes both surrounded and acted as the foundation for the band's exercises in genre busting, with tracks variously spacing out, chugging along like an '80's post punk band on Talk Talk, forming a pop song, or, by the end, just losing themselves in the set dressing. Ian Crause could gently and forlornly speak through the sheets of sound, or sing along when the song called for it. And on top of all that, "The Atheist's Burden" uses the electronics for rhythm, and "It's A Kid's World" drives on the back of pounding drums plundered from you'll-know-where.

This really is something else, with no words for it. Outclassing all comers, both from the genres they took from and from fellow EP wielding experimentalists like The Beta Band and Brainiac, this stands as Disco Inferno's completed magnum opus. And thank goodness that this collection eventually got an official release.

Thanks to harmonium.ro for the artist addition.
