Review

Review Text Detroit: The Dream Is Dead compiles Blight's lone official release -- a six-song 7" released in 1983 -- with some four-track demos and a recording of a performance in Detroit, where the band writhed and seethed and stomped through their entire nine-song repertoire. A band from Lansing, MI that lasted roughly half-a-year, Blight produced a wailing din with guitars that resembled twisted scraps of metal protesting their decay. Tesco Vee ranted over the sludge with almost none of the humor in his recordings with the Meatmen (the song titles are indicative of this), though the pent-up sneering remained in effect. Blight could've just as easily named themselves "Dejection" or "Despair." Their version of punk rock was a hopeless, flailing version of early Killing Joke and Effigies, with PiL's lumbering dirge "Theme" as the greatest point of inspiration. Ugly, desperate stuff. ~ Andy Kellman
