was a big year for Front 242
: two major releases of new stuff, two remix releases, plus the wildly popular Lollapalooza
tour. Up Evil
was the first release of the year, in late May. It retains the brooding, menacing sense of Tyranny For You
, but less dance-y, more trance
-y, and smoother transitions within and between tracks. Crapage
formed the basis for the first maxisingle release, also titled Religion
Up Evil and its major successor, 05:22:09:12 Off, are probably best understood as a package: cover art, mixing techniques, and musical and lyrical themes closely tie the two albums together.
- Religion (Pussy Whipped mix)
If you replace each number in "06:21:03:11" with the associated letter of the alphabet, you get a naughty word.
