Jimmy Hack Up = My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult + Cabaret Voltaire
100% Illegal is the new sound collage project by local art-faux leader, Xkot Toxsix, AKA Jimmy Hack Up. The most recognizable selections sampled: The Cure’s “10:15 Saturday Night,” Depeche Mode’s “Dreaming Of Me,” Angry Samoans’ “Lights Out” and Nitzer Ebb’s “Murderous.” The skill of layering these samples, and mixing and mashing them together is spot-on. He has created perfect, twisted scenes of deathly screams, corpses, slaughter houses and horrifying laughter for any nightmare seeker suffering from insomnia. The repetitive, fluttery sound at the beginning of “Antichrist Superstars” is terrifying and instantly reminds me of American Horror Story. The highlight is the marijuana-drenched dub of “Puff Puff Spooner” and “The Age Of Drugs” with its crunchy, speed-injected industrial trail.
