Finding info on WaxTrax! affiliates Dessau proved difficult - maybe it's no coincidence that one of their few releases was titled "Details Sketchy". Their abandoned website's got a terminal case of webrot (Fortunecity's servers are still running?) and I can't find anything else resembling an official presence. In any event, the Nashville group intermittently released sludgy industrial rock between 1985 and 1995 that nicely anticipated coldwave. Throughout it all, their signature tune remained an inspired cover of Joy Division's "Isolation". Slowed down, the song's bassline remains as unnerving as ever, and Al Jourgensen's percussion and programming turns Ian Curtis' skittering panic attack into a pounding anthem of self-reckoning.
Dessau - "Isolation"
...And hey presto! There's a nicely dated late 80's video, replete with strobe light and VJ intro.
