Given that Croc Shop founder and driving force Mick Hale is a friend of long standing (dating back to his previous life as Mick London), as well as a former bandmate (in the conceptual Wire cover band, the Ex-Lion Tamers), I have avoided writing about the group through the years, lest my "objectivity" seem sacrificed. But the retrospective nature of begs for a reassessment of the band, and not only by this rock-roll Luddite: As the following 35 tracks amply illustrate,... Croc Shop has been an underground treasure for 17 years now (under many different guises, but driven primarily by Hale and his key co-conspirator v. Markus). Croc Shop have willfully carved out their own unyielding path through a twisted musical thicket that has seen them consume, conquer, and often reinvent elements of shoegazer rock, gothic ambient drone, crushing industrial noise, pulsating techno, pounding drum and bass, good ol'-fashioned disco sex groove music, and myriad other sounds, to arrive at something that is not only unique sonically (Hale's songs remain wonderfully melodic, soulful, and dare I say human - though I'm certain that's an adjective he'd disavow) and lyrically (far left of Ralph Nader, our hero's political views are needed now more than ever in these fascist times - and by the way, he'd like you to not eat meat), but ethically. That is to say that in these ever-more bought, sold, compromised, and commodified times, Croc Shop remains the rare group dedicated to its art, and careerism be damned. is a testament to just how potent that art has been, and hopefully will continue to be.
