Silent Alarm
Silent Alarm
Bloc Party is an autonomous unit of un-extraordinary kids reared on pop culture between the years 1976 and the present day. They eventually concluded that their own attempts to imitate what had informed them could be innovative and fresh.

Styled more along the lines of a revolutionary cell than a band, Bloc Party approach the medium of rock'n'roll with the sort of high seriousness usually reserved for philosophy lectures. Yet on Silent Alarm, this "autonomous unit" of smart, wiry London youth don't just succeed in reinvigorating the artform--they come pretty close to reinventing it from the ground up. Whereas early singles like "She's Hearing Voices" found the band still attempting to chisel their own image out of familiar post-punk reference points--The Fall, Joy Division, and Gang Of Four, to name but three--newer tracks such as "Like Eating Glass" and the prickly "Price Of Gas" find Bloc Party pioneering a freshly-minted template of staccato percussion, expansive soundscapes, and cryptic lyrics that artfully straddle the political and the personal. Russell Lissack has forsaken that overdone hallmark of post-punk, brittle tortured-fretboard skronk, in favor of an effects-laden guitar sound that adds genuine prettiness to Bloc Party's edgy rush. But it's Kele Okereke's vocal that's the band's most flexible facet, morphing from frothing anger to breathless desperation. "Are you hoping for a miracle?" he bays, on "Helicopter". Yes? Well Silent Alarm ably fits the bill. --Louis Pattison

back when i was the official photographer for the motherfucker dance party, and before i got completely fucked over, i took this picture at their 5th anniversary party. so this is bloc party. first US show. at the roxy. i'm shooting from the stage, behind the band. for no apparent reason, he suddenly turned and beamed at me, and it was one of those moments i'll never forget. i'd never heard them before, and the show was incendiary. like, hairs on the back of your neck good. this one's also in the movie gallery, it's on the website splash page and there was some sort of rumor of t-shirts or posters that will never happen. oh well. it was a nice thought. btw, favoritest band picture ever.
