Somewhere in the mid-1980s, the groups that would later be labelled as shoegaze were keen to throw away out the book on music production. Instead, they were concerned with creating Phil Spectoreque walls of sound with feedback and noise used as bricks and mortar of their edifices.
Errorr uses that strategy. Similar to groups like the Jesus and Mary Chain, the very first seconds of “Wrong Direction” also reveal an arrogance and a love of risk-taking that is strangely absent from most of modern rock’s presentation.
“Wrong Direction” sounds like a building caught fire, trapping the band members while they play their final tune. Or, alternatively, it may sound like your television set catching the signal of numerous stations all at once. Either way, it’s an entertaining experience.
