Pop 1280 (named after the bleak crime novel by Jim Thompson) lay down uneasy vibes of grit and grime centering around a disheveled future inhabited by 80's visions of cyberpunk and post-Orwellian visions of decay. There are very few songs on The Grid EP that couldn't conceivably back up a Snake Plissken knife fight or Robocop shootout. They've taken all of the queasy fumes of corporate takeover/civilization crumbling conspiracy theories and melted them together into a gang fight mosh pit circa 2099. As vital and essential as any in the rapidly expanding Sacred Bones EP series.
