ROBERT X. PATRIOT: a collaborator of The Electric Hellfire Club, Boyd Rice and Warcom, ROBERT X. PATRIOT made quite a name for himself in the mid nineties by appearing on such cult samplers as ‘How Terrorists Kill’, ‘Men and Mice’ and ‘Psychick Wolves ov Midgard’. Not to mention his own infamous and much sought-after ‘Dogs Leg Rising’ album, a rather tongue-in-cheek „tribute“ to the World-Serpent-Family, as such titles as ‘Freya Aswynn’s Basement’, ‘Hitler in Khakis’, ‘Ou est Klaus Nomi’, or ‘Vichy Toast Sunrise’ clearly suggest.  But the best kept secret about ROBERT X. PATRIOT probably is his long-burning passion for the synth pop of the early 80s: think Ultravox, Duran Duran and all the heroes of the Electronic New Wave movement.

Ironflame now releases a brand new single-edit of this track, remixed by none other than Berlin Italo-/Electro-/NewWave-eminence DJ Hanoben ( And by the way: the careful liner-notes reader will be surprised to discover which celebrity deserves credit for the lyrics and vocals of this dark techno/industrial hybrid.
