THE STRANGER, September 4th, 2003

By Kathleen Wilson

After their great rendition of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at a recent tribute night, I was excited to see Infomatik's first public performance as a band when they played a couple Fridays ago at Kim's (located behind the Oh Boy! Oberto Factory Outlet on Rainier Ave). I wasn't disappointed--their modern take on the darkness of the Joy Division sound is entirely fresh. And I'll say it again, their drummer Colin is an ace. Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death is, in the words of singer Spencer Moody, "shitty samples and a cheap guitar."
