About Disco Inferno
Combining an affection for disjointed Post-Punk guitar sounds and a futurist's love of looped tape manipulations, Disco Inferno brought an unseen sense of adventure to the landscape of English music in the early '90s. Originally owing a bit to the minor-chord melancholia of the Durutti Column as well as the sound of the early Factory Records recordings, it wasn't until D.I. Go Pop (1994) that their unconventional sound experiments began to grab a foothold. Their swirling use of samples and industrial rhythms based on organic sounds, as well as the distant, muted vocals of Ian Crause, conjured up a more thoughtful and beautiful sadness. Their intelligent, melodic and wonderfully morose music came to an end with the band's disbanding in the mid '90s.
