Considering ‘Ad Nauseam’ is one of MonkHammer’s most anticipated albums of the year, there is a lot to live up to, and after the glorious, parping, fairground lunacy of the opening title track, what follows seems a little lost on first listen. Thankfully, Dog Fashion Disco’s greatest strength has always been their wild-eyed disregard for convention, coupled with lyrics that could generously be called questionable and a soundtrack-like sensibility to the concept of the album, and as such, it turns out ‘Ad Nauseam’ is a triumph of their own singular style. Allow yourself down the rabbit hole and myriad pleasures await. You want a 1920s cockney knees up? ‘Golden Mirage’. Creeping, nauseating terror? ‘Last Night Never Happened’. Romping hedonistic torture party anthem? ‘Lotion On Its Skin’. Introspective melancholy? ‘Baby Bones’. A pirate sea shanty? Why the fuck not!? ‘Only The Haunted’. DFD are certainly an acquired taste, but once you get it, pretty much anything they do will make sense… eventually.
