As your attorney, it is my duty to inform you that it is not important that you understand what I'm doing or why you're paying me so much money. What's important is that you continue to do so. -- Dr. Gonzo
Ever wonder what the sound of your Dad shattering your mom's jaw with an axe-handle would sound like if put to music? Wonder no more.
Since 1978, William Bennett and company under the name of Whitehouse have been
creating some of the most intense and disturbing music ever. In most cases, they
make Throbbing Gristle seem like a boring Holiday Inn lounge act. The music goes
beyond confrontational, and into the region of rape, forcing mental images of
the most unpleasant kind on subjects you would ever willingly want to think
about. A look at some of the song titles (Ripper Territory, Rapeday, Great
White Death, and Dom) should be more than enough to convince you of this.
And why would you want to endure such things? Because it makes for better art
than 99% of the shit that's being pumped out right now. It forces you to think.
To take in different perceptions of the world you live in, and acknowledge that
for all the beauty that exists, there is a dark and very ugly side.
