Trevor Jackson (Playgroup / Underdog / Output Recordings) returns with the eagerly awaited second instalment of his Metal Dance compilation series !Drawing from Jackson's deep collection of original industrial, post-punk, EBM and new wave, the album is an inspired mix of sounds and styles, mining classics, dub versions, oddities and
secret weapons inspired by his formative clubbing years at many of London's seminal nightlife haunts.
Alongside more familiar names like Visage, Chris & Cosey, Front 242 & Ministry, the compilation includes unexpected outings by '80s artists Godley & Creme (with the obscure B-Side "Babies") and an early incarnation of Sheffield's ABC, Visa Versa, with "Riot Squad." As before, Jackson also places the spotlight onsome of the less heralded bands of the time and casts the net far and wide: Germany's Plus Instruments, Spain's
Diseno Corbusier offshoot Esplendor Geometrico, Italyï¿½s Neon and Yellow Magic Orchestraï¿½s Haruomi Hosono out of Japan all feature.
