They may have been classified as a Noise Rock band and band members themselves have thought have themselves as Punk Rockers, but in many ways they were a precursor to the Industrial scene that was about to follow. Singing about a myriad of disturbing topics (songs about mutilation were tame for them) they delivered with a blistering guitar attack pounded by loud drum machines. They never hit it big, but then again, they probably never tried to either.
