Complete your The Skull Defekts collection. The Skull Is A Temple.
The Skull Defekts did a few albums, a bunch of singles and tapes and toured Europe, China and finally the US in 2008 where we met up with Daniel Higgs in Baltimore. I had met him at All Tomorrow’s Parties a few years back and Fagge once swapped shoes with him in Spain. He joined us on stage the next night at The Black Cat in Washington DC. Higgs was a member of the band before any of us even knew it. It felt so natural to play together that we decided that the five of us should make the next Skull Defekts album. The Skull Defekts might be our strongest album musically. It is the album that might be the most composed one. It is well prepared musically and of course holds improvisational parts, but probably less than before. This is our last album. The Skull Defekts has been an important part of our lives.
Dances in Dreams of the Known Unknown.
Swedish quartet Skull Defekts have been churning out punishing post-punk in the vein of provocative bands like the Birthday Party and Jesus Lizard since early 2005. Though they’ve occasionally dabbled in out-and-out noise, the sprawling album THE TEMPLE sticks to the swampy, defiantly primitive rock & roll that characterized releases like 2007’s BLOOD SPIRITS & DRUMS ARE SINGING.

This album is a career highpoint for Sweden’s Skull Defekts, a group who have already paid their dues and then some in the field of strafing psychedelic noiserock. Readers – and I know I’m playing to the crowd with this bit because we have all your data – who enjoy acts from Sonic Youth to Factory Floor to Gnod ought to be all over The Skull Defekts.
