Sutcliffe Jügend | Offal
Post Industrial pioneers Sutcliffe Jugend take everything to a new level with the beautifully packaged album “Offal”. Available on deluxe double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, and CD in a gatefold digisleeve, featuring monochrome paintings by Kevin Tomkins.
With printed lyrics included for the first time, we get to the heart of Sutcliffe Jugend at their euphoric and vilifying best. Words that will make you question what it is to be truly human and not the conformist PC neo-liberal slave so prevalent and encouraged in the modern era.
The production on the album sounds massive compared to previous releases, giving the carefully constructed songs an intense, brutal and relentless environment not heard before. Kevin Tomkins’ vocals are pushed to new extremes, doing battle with Paul Taylor’s vicious guitar and synth work.
“Offal” features four epic tracks (55 minutes) of naked emotional release that will leave the listener breathless and gasping for more.

“Desde Mentenebre recomendamos encarecidamente “Offal” por ser uno de esos discos que te llegan al alma, pero no precisamente de la forma más ortodoxa, sino atravesando salvajemente tu caja torácica” (9.75/10, Mentenebre).
“what makes this particularly good is the massive production of this music. It immediately brings this noise to a whole different level… major league noise music”. (Vital Weekly)
“The work reveals a dangerous fusion between tormenting noise parts and weird vocal parts. This album reflects a great and possessed production”. (Side-Line)
“A solid work of cold industrial.” (4/5, Musique Machine)
“Offal” birgt absolut leckere Kost für Freunde harscher Klänge, die auch auf Aspekte wie Atmosphäre und Eingängigkeit spekulieren.” (8/10, Raben Report)
