When Laibach was founded in 1980s Slovenia, their Nosferatu-esque utterances and Sturm und Drang industro-wankery had revolutionary fire. Government officials shut down their early multimedia shows, and the group was banned from making public appearances. Laibach became a rallying point for dissent in Slovenia, and they were canonized as part of the national identity. Too bad they're struggling for currency in the post-Soviet political landscape. This two-disc outing (straight tracks on disc one, remixes on the second) won't help them get there. Their Ein-Zwei-Drei crypto-fascist house stylings (think the dance club from Vin Diesel's XXX) are too laughable to scare anyone but aging reds and Dick Clark.
Laibach get dark at Lee's Palace Wednesday (November 10).
