Psychotica

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): American Recordings, Ventrue

New York’s Psychotica admit that it’s their outrageous live-performance style that landed them at Lollapalooza. Yet their debut album, Psychotica, is similarly theatrical. Grounded in a hard Gothic crunch and enlivened by rap and industrial inflections, the songs don’t diverge much from the mascaraed glory days of Bauhaus. But flamboyant singer Pat Briggs and an ear-shattering bass track lend the cuts a spirited grandness, which is as entertaining on headphones as it is on stage. B
