Also an industrial/gabba group headed by (or rather, pretty
much consisting of) a man called Johnny Violent. His real name
is Johnathan Casey, but it doesn't sound as scary. Typically 200
bpm, this music hurts your head if you fall asleep listening to
it. NME called Ultraviolence 'the most unlistenable-to band on
the planet'. An excellent accolade. As Johnny Violent, he
released 'Shocker', an album full of witty gabba (is there such a
thing? Listen to E-heads Must Die and Johnny Is a Bastard,
and of course there is a sampling of Van Halen's 'Jump' in the
mix at some point). 'Burn Out', the final track, is ever-increasing
bpm, finishing with 2,000,000 bpm. It hurts.
Ultraviolence Discography :
- Life of Destructor
(1994), contains the classic 'Hardcore Motherf**ker'
- Psychodrama (1995)

there is also
- Heaven is Oblivion (single)
- I, Destructor (remixes)

I would recommend Life of Destructor as a first-time album
to get, Joan and Hardcore Motherf**ker being by far the best
tracks. You can also find out about them from www.earache.com, their record
label, and also download stuff from emusic.com.
