about

Dow Jones and the Industrials created roaring art-punk that collided with the confusion and celebration of technology. Their left field approach turned gnarled guitar riffs into unshakable melodies battered by synths and propelled with sharp lyrics.

In the late-1970s Indiana punk scene, the Industrials stood apart with a technically perfected yet manic approach to performance and sound creation. Their songs tore into the boredom and cultural blandness of the Midwest and paranoia of the era with crescendo tensions giving way to explosive drums rolls and throbbing bass as filtered through rudimentary samples and processing.

For the first time, this anthology brings together 29 remastered songs, including 1980 "Hoosier Hysteria" LP, 1981 7-inch EP, 9 unreleased studio tracks plus compilation, demo and live recordings.

"Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981" declares Dow Jones and the Industrials as ace songwriters and maverick studio producers whose execution and vision was not only beyond its time but remains completely relevant and cutting for today.
