Diode is Shawn Foree of Digital Leather and David Hansen of Worried Mothers. After nine records as Digital Leather, crafting lo-fi synth punk sui generis, Foree has formed what we’ll refer to as an “industrial shit-noise band” with Hansen.
The debut on Crash Symbols lurks in the future, but as an introduction “Peck On The Lips” is nothing nice mixed with the disturbances of a mind rotten to the core. While the rampage of “Peck On The Lips” might incur assumptions this is the product of menacing trips down substance abuse rabbit holes, Foree claims the record was done sober of mind and body. Knowing Diode transmits without ellicit assistance makes the industrial waste all the more ultraviolent. Foree howls and croaks like he’s dying an insect’s death under the squish of a boot only to be reincarnated in a lower class of centipede.
Crash Symbols has full length plans for Diode, but nothing concrete as of yet.
