Singles Going Single #124 - Piedmont Charisma 7" (2001)

On "Red, Black, Khaki," Asheville, NC's now departed Piedmont Charisma demonstrate their skillful fusion of clangy, rhythmic post-punk, a la Talking Heads and Gang of Four with an updated, 21st century aplomb that really shines through. Love the crisp, prominent percussion on this one. On the the other side of the fence we have the Wire-y "Carheartt Cologne" and a quick, art-damaged slice o' psychosis called "Family Emergency." A sweet picture sleeve doesn't hurt either. Piedmont committed more material to tape than this single, which you can read more about on their Myspace destination.

A. Red, Black, Khaki
B1. Carheartt Cologne
B2. Family Emergency
