Details Sketchy (Fifth Column)
by Nik Rainey
“We’re going down in history,” Dessau‘s John Elliott rasps, and I do believe he’s right. Details Sketchy, with its catalog of electro-clichés and indulgent guest appearances by every profitable combo in the genre, marks the point in time when the Industrial Revolutionaries, fat on their own success, have gone from wanting to tear the factory down, making an unholy racket with the wreckage, to merely supervising the assembly line. The days of raging against the pretty hate machine are obviously over – the works are now well-lubed and run on autopilot. Genesis P-Orridge has more interesting things than this residing in his colon. Kill it.
