N.R.F.B Featuring Frankie NW Stubbs

NRFBN.R.F.B (Nuclear Raped Fuck Bomb) is a collaboration of Frankie Stubbs (Leatherface), Jens Rachut (Kommando Sonne-Nmilch), Thomas Wenzel (Die Sterne, Die Goldenen Zitronen) and Mense Reents (Stella, Egoexpress). The 7 songs of this record, alternated sung by Frankie Stubbs, Jens Rachut and the female voice of Lisa Hagmeister are a wild and insane mix of punk rock with electronic influences, techno, flamenco-guitars and spoken words. Surrounded by strange lyrics and unbelievable stories in german and english this is perhaps the strangest independent/punk-record in 2011 far beyond any genre limits.

The highlights include the title track ‘NRFB’ where Frankie takes over the lead vocals, the song ‘The Tank Driver’, which is a command performance par excellence and the final piece ‘Schaffel’, a driving mid-tempo number even with flamenco guitar work. A great disc, which reveals its true greatness only after repeated listening. The cover artwork is a photograph of four military amputees using donkeys to assist in mobility and is an enigma in itself.

The CD (Available here) comes with a chic matte gold-plated pressure digi-pack with booklet text. The matte gold-coated cover of the limited LP edition comes coloured inner bag with lyrics in olive green / brown vinyl (Available here).
