ALBUM REVIEWS : IN THE NURSERY - AUDABE
It always has been difficult for in The Nursery-fans to find their old stuff and even if they did, it was mostly at prices you can’t afford. Even if it’s very quiet on the front for In The Nursery-releases, our twins from Sheffield recently have released this new compilation. “Audabe” (the first track they ever played on stage) compiles everything which has been released between 1983 and 1985. True fans from the band know that this is totally different from what we’re used from Klive and Nigel Humberstone. In stead of their cinematographic (and often Wagnerian militaristic) sound, it feels like you’re listening here to some old band on factory. The 18 tracks on here (among liveclassics such as “Mystery” or “Deus Ex Machina”) refer a lot to the coldwavesound from Joy Division even if you can hear step by step how the band is evolving though. It’s clear that the usual In The Nursery-fan who loves their electronic neo-classical sound will be rather surprised when he hears this. But a coldwave-tip nontheless!
