Reverend Raul Antony Reviews Latest Single from Queer Noise Project STRAIGHT PANIC

Reverend Raul Antony provides commentary on “Boys’ Academy”, the new single from STRAIGHT PANIC’s upcoming Religious Liberty Task Force cassette.

Thomas Boettner conjures the iconoclastic anti-religious power electronics of classics such as The Grey Wolves‘ Catholic Priests Fuck Children and Con-Dom‘s All In Good Faith. ‘Boys’ Academy’ displays a more focused and mature sound from 2017 album The Satanic Verses, opening with Baptist Pastor Sean Harris’ godly anti-gay diatribe over emotionally looped and distorted pads, devoured by vintage flanged vocals and oscillated synth feedback. Throwback is the new black, so with the return of Reagan-era Christian moral hypocrisy in the political spotlight, it’s timely that we have a poignant response in the most brutal and personal form.

Listen to the full track at Heathen Harvest (WARNING: Graphic audio and visuals).
