Description
They take their name from the dolls of Hans Bellmer, the German artist whose highly charged work characterized Europe's interwar period and foreshadowed the impending cataclysm of World War II. There is definitely something of the reckless abandon of the cabaret in New York City's Bellmer Dolls, as well as the cruel probing of the surrealist, making the Weimar-era artist an appropriate point of reference for them. The juxtaposition of the dark and the sensual in their own work is expressed through pounding beat cut by bursts of feedback that sears like an exposed nerve. These Dolls boast a highly impressive CV of ex- Love Life (whose other alumni formed the celebrated Celebration), Universal Order of Armageddon, and Vanity Set members and Jim Sclavunous (known for his work in Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, the Cramps, Sonic Youth, and 8 Eyed Spy) is at the helm as producer, so it is not terribly surprising how cruelly effective they are
