UAIOE

Released

With the band’s creative core now fully centered on Sascha K and En Esch following Raymond Watts’s departure, KMFDM closed out their 1980s with the strong UAIOE, at once more focused on its shuddering blend of sampling, industrial-strength beats and generally dark atmosphere while able to explore even more styles via guest turns like Morgan Adjei’s deliberate flow on songs like “Murder.” But it’s the sharp sloganeering-party-amid-the-chaos numbers like the knowingly hilarious “More and Faster,” “Thrash Up!” and the title track that hit the biggest.
