The Disciples crew unearth the self-released demo tape from the New Orleans band released on cassette in 2016 before signing with Raw Sugar for their debut LP 'Spiralling'. Sounding as brutal as ever spoiling for a fight with a world drunk on the emissions of pig-headed monsters with their gutter politics.

Then again, from under the cacophony of industrial drum programming and no wave screeches, there’s a side of Special Interest who believe in the eternally elemental power of throwing shapes on the floor — they even have a scorched micro-meteor of a track called ‘DISCO’, and there’s no denying that the hardened bass-and-percussion rhythm of ‘Disease’ has a punk-accelerated 4/4 immediacy seeping out of its swampy distortion. Beneath the dirge of electronics also lies a sensitive core, which pokes out in the alienated melancholia of ‘(Fluid) Bound 2’ with its ice-cold synths, while the layers of harsh noise slowly peel away on the record’s closer ‘I’ll Never Do Ketamine Again’, revealing vocalist Alli Logout’s scabrous vocal.

The indistinct target of Trust No Wave is a broken status quo, a world born out of madness. For Special Interest, the greatest protest is to make a loud, screeching and relentless noise.

Recorded and Mastered by Jasper Denhartigh at Bird Island Recording March-May 2016
Originally self-released on cassette in 2016
Cut by Beau Thomas at Ten Eight Seven
