Madonnatron 'Madonnatron' LP
La Llorona, “the weeping woman”, drowned her children in a fit of madness. When she realized what she did, she took her own life. According to the legend, her ghost is said to haunt the rivers and lakes of Mexico, where she can be heard crying, wandering in the search of her kids. Hearing her cry is an omen of death. She will kidnap and take the soul of children who wander alone - believing them as her own - in an attempt to find her peace. La Llorona is Lilith, the ancestral deamon, the creature of the night, Lamia, the child-eater, the banshee and the hag. People who fall into her trap mistake her for an apparition of the Virgin Mary due to her charm and beauty.”
Much in the manner a devotional feline will proudly massacre vermin, leaving its sacrificial remains to fetter your hallway carpet, we bring you Madonnatron. Viciously audacious novices to electric noise we have crafted a merciless assemblage of leering distain, Erotomania, Genocidal Lament, infanticide, calculated Matricide, funeral dodgers, dystopian angst and surreptitious worshiping at the altar of Bastet to flavour this record. We won't be making you a sandwich motherfuckers.
MADONNATRON, by their own admission, started out with pretty low expectations (given that none of them could actually play their instruments). But, like label-mates Fat White Family & Meatraffle, it hasn’t stopped them rapidly becoming one of the standout bands of this “South London scene” that everyone’s talking about. They performed a live session on Marc Riley’s 6 Music show, without even having an official release & he’s just booked another session on the 6th of June. They’ve toured with The Moonlandingz & with Meatraffle & have some real nice festival slots coming in for the summer...
