Iron Fist Of The Sun | Who Will Help Me Wash My Right Hand
New full length album by English artist IFOTS. Continuing on his path of exploratory yet focused industrial, and his trademark clean detailed power electronics that was first seen on his debut CD for Cold Spring, “Behavioural Decline”, “Who Will Help Me Wash My Right Hand” is a frantic mix of structure and chaos, less violent than previous releases but instead drenched in melancholy and bitterness. Available on CD and LP limited to 200 copies on yellow vinyl.

LP Track Listing:
Rock-A-Rolla: “Lee Howard’s music is a very loose and unpredictable adoption of the power electronics template. Who Will Help Me Wash My Right Hand begins with a bluesy, Coil-style bass loop jamming with the sound of ripping a gigantic piece of Velcro, and ends with what appears to be someone powering down the Death Star one generator at a time. Howard’s voice is a confused and exasperated human presence in the centre of it all, screaming into the transitory landscape as if pleading for it to cease moving. Where a lot of power electronics sounds like a soul shackled to stasis and isolation, this album is the opposite: a man caught in the blur of an ephemeral life, devoid of home and hurtling helplessly toward oblivion”.
