120 DAYS - "Sedated Times"

Norway's 120 DAYS not only love to shed their clothes and get touchy-feelie with each other, but thay have also just released the fan-fucking-tastic new EP "Sedated Times" on Vice Recordings. Actually, it's a re-release, having originally been recorded in 2004. "Sedated Times" shows the raw origins of the band, whose 2006 self-titled debut by contrast showcased a grand, sweepingly epic rock sound. In fact, on the 2 1/2 minute post-punk track 'Justine', you wouldn't even recognize this as the same band who grabbed everyone's attention last year with the apocalyptic synth-rock anthem 'Come Out (Come Down, Fade Out, Be Gone)'.

120 Days - C-Musik (music video from "120 Days LP")

For a taste of what influences had an impact on 120 Days, they've posted this mix-tape tracklist on their myspace page. I must say, they have phenomenally excellent taste:

cluster - imsüden
neu! - für immer
silver apples - oscillations
spacemen 3 - suicide (live)
tussle - tight jeans
suicide - fast money music
bob hund - allseende ögat
david bowie - a new career in a new town
mental overdrive - new world
primal scream - detroit
jesus & mary chain - reverberation (13th floor elevators cover)
kraftwerk - metropolis
steve reich - music for 18 musicians
spectrum - how you satisfy me

And more reasons to love 120 Days...
