Elliott Sharp/Carbon : "Tocsin"

(Enemy, 1991)

TOCSIN was mostly song-structures with very little formality - I had decided that CARBON should not hew to any specific agenda but should be the carrier of many mutant strains. Central to the bands sound was the use of extended timbres - sometimes to orchestrate a melodic or harmonic idea, sometime to function as the entire sonic hook. To todays ears, a pungent sound can function just as a catchy melody or lyric refrain once did.
