Many years ago, Rob Dougan was famous for his track Clubbed to Death, which seemed to be in every movie. It was lesser known he released an album around that time that was a brilliant piece of furious pain.
Years later, Rob Dougan released a new song. The beats were gone, an orchestra has grown in place, but his vocal and his pain remain.
Open Sore is great, painful, cathartic. A few years later still, today, and it’s coming out on a CD boxset along with other later tracks. We’re glad he’s back.
