S.o.t.D. - Assassins (Assassins With Soul Mix) – 23 Skidoo

Assassins (Assassins With Soul Mix) – 23 Skidoo

I’ve been looking for this one on here for ages. Also released under the name Shugyosha Step. The best thing they did in my mind. They started out as compatriots of Psychic TV and the like, rather dark and dour. This change of direction in to what could almost be considered a breakdancing track was a shock, but a pleasant one. Like so many artists of that time and genre (Coil, PTV, Chris & Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire, Test Dept., etc.) their sound transformed in to something far brighter and frankly, kind of fun. It was a transformation that mirrored my own shifting musical interest, as I too realized that zoom was better than gloom.
