With its righteous disdain for capitalism and the almighty dollar, Repeater sounds like an angrier American update of Gang of Four's Solid Gold, which had been made ten years earlier. Lines/slogans like "When I need something/I reach out and grab it," "You are not what you own," "I was caught with my hand in the till," and "Everything is greed" bear this out. Though not lacking any sense of conviction, Repeater honestly gets a little stifling. It's not too difficult to see why the band was allegedly lacking a sense of humor at this stage. They could have been yelling about filing their taxes; the yelling begins to fade into a din after a while. The title makes sense, if only by mistake. But -- and that's a big but -- Repeater nearly matches the Fugazi and Margin Walker EPs with its musical invention and skill, spewing out another group of completely invigorating songs, which makes the subject matter and finger-pointing a little easier to swallow. Few rhythm sections of the time had the great interplay of Joe Lally and Brendan Canty. Likewise, the guitar playing and interaction of Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto almost always get overlooked, thanks to all the other subjects brought up when the band is talked about. A guitar magazine even rated Repeater as one of the best guitar records of the '90s, and rightfully so. Anemic revs spiked by pig squeals (or is it a screeching train?) highlight the title track, one of the band's finest moments. (Don't miss MacKaye's vicious double-tracked vocals, either.) As always, MacKaye and Picciotto's noise-terrorism-as-guitar-joust avoids flashiness, used as much as rhythm as punctuation device. Sharp, angular, jagged, and precise. Other gnarling highlights include the preachy "Styrofoam," the late-breaking "Sieve-Fisted Find," and the somewhat ironic "Merchandise," which skewers Mr. Business Owner by asking, "What could a businessman ever want more/Than to have us sucking in his store?" Plenty of fans had to suck in someone's store to get this record, after all. [The CD version of Repeater added the 3 Songs 7" as a bonus, titled as Repeater + 3 Songs.]

Ian Curtis, poète industriel et universel

Le suicide du chanteur de Joy Division il y a tout juste quarante ans continue de hanter le post-punk et la new wave comme l’histoire du rock tout entière. En seulement deux albums, le groupe culte de Manchester a rendu magnifiques la grisaille, la dépression et l’industrialisation urbaine grâce à son leader charismatique, toujours aussi influent aujourd’hui.

The Cure : quand le rock se soigne au remix

Les Cure rééditent en version deluxe "Mixed Up", leur album de remix publié en 1990. Un disque ovni qui tenait à cœur à leur leader Robert Smith, comme en témoigne cette interview de l’époque.

Sex Pistols / The Clash, le yin et le yang du punk

C’est un peu comme Motown et Stax, Rubinstein et Horowitz, Miles Davis et John Coltrane : la tendance voudrait faire des Sex Pistols et des Clash des siamois quand on est plutôt face à des opposés. Le gang de Johnny Rotten et celui de Joe Strummer ont beau trôner sur le devant de la vitrine du mouvement punk, tout les séparait. Ou presque.
