We’re back with another Dinked drop, this time around Dinked #52 is the debut album proper from Canadian collective Crack Cloud! ‘Pain Olympics’ is released through Meat Machine Records on 17th July.
Like Psychic TV before them, Crack Cloud have a philosophy, and one that they are not afraid to wear on their sleeves. While their anarchic, phantas- magorical visuals, heavy use of symbology, and seemingly never-ending cast of colourful collaborators have often invited cult comparisons, this really does the collective no justice. There is no apocalyptic death drive here; no cult of personality; no hierarchy of power. While frontman and lyricist Zach Choy is in many ways the face of the group, the collective is one founded on equality, and in his cryptic lyrical blend- ing of poetics, polemics and personal experience, Choy is truly the mouthpiece of something far larger than himself
The Dinked Edition of ‘Pain Olympics’ is limited to just 500 copies and is presented on 180 gram dark green vinyl in a numbered, gatefold sleeve. It also comes with a download code and bonus 7″ single featuring 2 unreleased tracks!
