Line-up (members)

  • Justin Broadrick : Vocals, Guitars, Drum Programming
  • G. Christian Green : Bass
  • Paul Neville : Guitars (Tracks 6 - 10)
The title Streetcleaner may have originated from the band Whitehouse, one of Justin's influences. On their Right to Kill album they have a song called The Street Cleaner which might have influenced the band to choose that for their first full length album title.

On the original copy of the CD, tracks 6 and 7 are read on the case to be one whole track but they are two individual tracks (as presented in the tracklist here.)

Tracks 1-5 were recorded at Soundcheck in Birmingham, May-August 1989, without Paul Neville.
Tracks 6-10 were recorded at Square Dance in Derby, May 1989, with Paul Neville.

CD bonus tracks:

11. Tiny Tears (3:24)
12. Wound (3:07)
13. Dead Head (4:07)
14. Suction (3:23)

These were recorded for an EP called Tiny Tears that was never released.

Re-released as MC and CD in June 1994 by Earache Records with inferior cover and back art.

Re-released on vinyl by Kreation Records in 2008 remastered by Mell Dettmer (splatter x250, orange/black blend x250, black unlimited).

Remastered and reissued in 2010 including a bonus disc of rarities:
1. Like Rats (Original Unreleased Mix)
2. Christbait Rising (Original Unreleased Mix)
3. Pulp (Original Unreleased Mix)
4. Dream Long Dead (Original Unreleased Mix)
5. Head Dirt (Original Unreleased Mix)
6. Streetcleaner (Live Geneva early 1990)
7. Head Dirt (Live Geneva early 1990)
8. Pulp (Rehearsal May 1989)
9. Dream Long Dead (Rehearsal April 1989)
10. Christbait Rising (Rehearsal April 1989)
11. Deadhead (Original Demo Guitar & Machine 1988)
12. Suction (Original Demo Guitar & Machine 1988)

The artwork used for this album is actually a screenshot from a scene in the 1980 sci-fi/horror film 'Altered States'.

The 2010 remaster combines the tracks "Devastator / Mighty Trust Krusher" into one track, as originally intended.

There was a music video made for "Christbait Rising".

Streetcleaner Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (90/100)

초창기 Napalm Death의 멤버였던 Justin Broadrick와 G. Christian Green이 결성한 Industrial Metal 밴드로 Industrial Metal 밴드 사이에선 Black Sabbath급으로 칭송 받는 밴드이다. 말이 그냥 Black Sabbath라는 게 아니고 영국내의 NWOBHM 흐름에서 파격적인 Heavy Metal 노선을 보여준 Black Sabbath에 걸맞는 비교를 Godflesh에게는 댄서너블하면서 Groove가 강조되며 타 장르의 결합과 함께 들려준 Industrial Metal 장르를 Godflesh만의 사운드로 정형화 시킨 밴드라고 할 수 있기 때문에 이 쪽 장르에서는 Black Sabbath를 비교해도 이의없이 칭송 받는 급의 대우를 받는다.

하지만 흔히 우리가 아는 Industrial Metal의 사운드를 알듯이 Godflesh는 일반적으로 아는 그 사운드와는 다르며 일반적인 Industrial Metal보다 상당히 진지하고 어둡고 혼돈스러운 사운드를 들려주며 무엇에 홀린 듯 이들은 조금 더 심오하며 실험적인 시도를 하고 있다.

모든 세션에 Effects가 잔뜩 들어갔지만 그 분위기와 표현력을 맞추기엔 여지없이 훌륭하며 단순한 Beat를 조금씩 집어 넣기만 할 뿐 기계적인 분위기를 그려 나가기 위한 Guitar와 Bass 단 두대로 이런 사운드를 내는 것에 경이롭기만 하다. Drum이야 이쪽에선 Program으로 찍는게 더욱 Industrial다우니 오히려 일반 Drum으로 녹음을 했다면 별로 였을 것이다.

Industrial Metal의 최종보스라고 해도 과언이 아닐 정도로 심오한 세계에 빠져 들고 싶다면 이들의 첫 정규앨범을 듣기를 권장한다.

어둡고 진지하면서 유쾌한 음악을 담은 명작.

익스페리멘탈 메탈이라지만 난해함과는 좀 거리가 먼거 같다. 오히려 되게 끌리고 재밋는 앨범인거 같다
level   (95/100)
brilliant, dark, heavy and fucking decent noisy album as well.
level   (80/100)
흐름을 읽었던 그들. 무척이나 진보적인 음악.
level   (94/100)
미니멀리즘을 표방하지만 그 안에서 괴기하게 일그러지는 베이스와 기타 피드백 사운드를 통해, 디스토피아적 미래상을 섬세하게 그려내는 것이 가히 예술적이라 할 만 하다.
