Buñuel’s album “Killers Like Us” – the third part of a trilogy that started with “A Resting Place for Strangers”, and then “The Easy Way Out” – is a killer addition to the canon of good music for bad people. Buñuel’s unpredictable amalgam of angular rhythms, drum salvos, blitzkrieg guitars and vocals that sound more like threats than promises is post-punk, proto-heavy and arty (as in avant-garde noise).
The band are named after the Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel, “the only filmmaker to first make his bones by making good on what happens when straight razors meet eyeballs”.
Buñuel are a near-super group of global significance boasting the sound work of the Italian trio of guitarist Xabier Iriondo (Afterhours), the bass of Andrea Lombardini, and the drums of Francesco Valente (Il Teatro Degli Orrori, Snare Drum Exorcism, and Lume), along with the vocals of Eugene S. Robinson (OXBOW).
“The ambiguity implied by the title where it’s not entirely clear whether the killers are similar to us or just appreciate us, is nowhere in evidence in the music, which sets out to say in as clear a way as possible: your death is an inevitable consequence of you, very precisely, being YOU”, comments Eugene S. Robinson.
