From Bright Lights To Blackout
This limited edition single precedes their debut UK album, “Polysics Or Die”, with "Kaja Kaja Goo” presented as the A-side, featuring Nick Beggs on bass. The three bizarre creatures that make up the Polysics have an amazing sound that could do more damage than any H-Bomb. But, less can be said for the B-side track.
Think amusement arcades, bright lights and gaudy colours taken over by a load of punk kids, sky high on adrenalin and wielding baseball bats. If you're thinking of this, you’ll just about get “Kaja Kaja Goo” - a track that leaves you wondering what the hell just happened. A number that screams “electro-pop-punk” at you, and is brimming with fast, choppy sounds and bizarre noises. As for the vocals... let’s just say you expect heads to start spinning!
After “Kaja Kaja Goo” you’d expect something as equally screwed up, but “Black Out Fall Out” doesn’t live up to that. With a more “poppy” sound that is reminiscent of a computer game, you’ll be wondering if this is the same band. “Black Out Fall Out” lacks the venom, violence and sheer pandemonium of “Kaja Kaja Goo”. The keyboard work is good, but after a while it begins to drag you down.
