Description

For Dramatic Effect on CD

The Coinop Revenge is one of the alter egos of songwriter/producer Spencer Wysinger. In this incarnation, he focuses on the process of mixing Alternative tendencies with New Wave sounds. To give you an example: Cram a barrel full of synthesizers, guitars, overindulgence, lust, control and self-realization. Now throw the barrel down a flight of stairs. If you listen closely, you'll hear the Coinop Revenge's debut release, For Dramatic Effect. For Dramatic Effect quickly takes you through just a small fragment of this alter ego's mind, starting with heavy muted guitar riffs and eventually moving to techno beats and piano-centric melodic pop. The album makes it's way back to driving rock before dissolving into a solution of Aphex-inspired triggers. Once burned out on the caloric roller-coaster, the album crashes into a slow acoustic reprise of an earlier theme. Like a madman who screams his mantra only to find him five years later huddled in a corner muttering it in shame... and all of this happens in just 22 minutes. As Spencer himself says, 'It's better than blowing the cash on a cheap hooker... I hope.'
