I recall a few bands who drew attention of fans because of an interesting image related to UV rays reactive paint spread on the musicians' bodies. Punish Yourself comes from France and besides their typical stage image, they put lots of efforts in searching for new paths of improving.

Gore Baby Gore is the newest album by Punish Yourself, altho reviewed a year after its official release date. Thanx to the band who's been looking for promotion, I can share with you my views now :)
The songs are a bit different to those released on their debut album Sexplosive Locomotive, but this was announced in an interview we did last year with the band. Gore Baby Gore includes a variety of tunes, many musical styles and influences, from punk through disco, industrial to soundtrack-like songs.

I'm totally enchanted by Worms from the very first listening, with its dark intro and a moderate, almost trance rhythm. After watching Punish Yourself DVD I still have a memory of a woman featuring in a movie preceding Worms performance:"I never try anything. I just do it." Very suggestive! I liked also the song called Mothra Lady, altho we got some dance rhythms, similar to those in Gun track.

The tracklist is shared by a few songs kept in an atmosphere appearing usually in soundtracks (VIII (Strength), or XX (Judgement)). Other than that Sister Apocalypse includes a kind of psychodelic element (because of the saxophone sound) and looks like Punish Yourself was influenced by music of Angelo Badalamenti, known from, for instance The Lost Highway (dir. by David Lynch) movie. The Dexedrine Ritual sounds cool mostly to guitar riffs and the whole dynamics.

Get the CD and support Punish Yourself in their expressive activity, moreover you definitely should appreciate their devotion to painting their bodies (yes, this paint burns!) and successful attempts to blend many styles of music. It's also worth to mention that Gore Baby Gore is promoted by a very spectacular DVD video entitled "Night Of The Voodoo Gun live".
