Pete Swanson, formerly of Yellow Swans, continues to merge noise and techno with ear splitting results on the Punk Authority EP for Software Recording Co. Last seen blowing synapses with the triumphant Pro Style EP, a distinctive looking and sounding release for the Type label, Swanson evidently is looking to surpass that attempt to merge his background in ear piercing noise with the rhythmic tropes of techno with this four track release. Allegedly named in homage to the 80s Guttenberg classic Police Academy, the Punk Authority EP has wisely been daubed "deformed warehouse techno" by Software with a "vomited pulse half-heard through a Stuttgart toilet stall" at its heart. Such vivid descriptions are well justified on the basis of Swanson's productions, most notably the final 12 minute track "Life Ends At 30? which we advise you approach with caution (and the bass turned down).
