What do you do when your washing machine fucks you over? When it looks back at you and laughs in your face as you try and squeeze your torso into a jumper that used to fit you before it was washed. When your black jeans come out light grey and your socks reduce down to the size of a walnut there’s only one solution. Drag the fucker out, drive it out into the middle of the woods and go to town on the cunt with tracked vehicles, diggers, hammers, saws and eventually dynamite. Who’s laughing now you pathetic pile of piss?!? You wanted more lunacy... you got it. You wanted shards of metal passing your face at 500 miles per hour - you got it. You wanted heavy machinery being operated by people who have no idea how to operate that machinery - we got you fam.

Welcome to the Zoo, reptile enclosure’s that way.

There's a line between being a little crazy (which can work nicely) and adding every lunatic thing you could come up with out into one mess. This is easily in the latter half.

Most of the music I listen to is just unmemorable and forgettable, but this one here was just unpleasant.

Well I do agree here, Will Atkisnson is known for his innovative creation and loved most of his previous productions but this one is crap production from him.

Funny track! Heard it a few weeks ago and it's definitely bonkers and over the top (as is the whole Victims helpline label), but I don't mind a bit of stuff like that now and again, it's a bit of fun. Reminds me a bit of Organ Donors tracks from around 2011-2013 :)

What an awful overstuffed track. When I heard the triplets I just wanted to scream.

Why all these negative comments???
I really like this. Absolutely crazy, it hurts your ears and you pretty much want to smash your head against the wall and wet yourself. At least that's what happened to me just now. :D

Edit: This is probably the most funny promo text I've ever seen.
Edit 2: And one of the funniest videos. ;D

I like it, except for the contrived big roomy melody in the breakdown.

Wish he'd go back to making goofy tech like Pat Butcher and Leave A Message though which was actually innovative at the time.

I've liked Will's crazy and 'fun' tracks, but I prefer his uplifting and melodic side, the bad thing is he produces more tracks like this one :/

Speaking as someone who likes to ironically listen to deliberately terrible dance music, I understand where @halcyonzocalo is coming from because this definitely falls into the "it's so bad/cringey, it's good" category. Sounds like Gladde Paling and Vieze Asbak if they made big room psytrance instead of techno and drum 'n bass haha :LOL:

But yeah, from a serious viewpoint it's a hard no. I prefer his uplifting stuff over any of his techno tracks, especially this one.

I imagine he gets huge responses from this stuff at events so probably encouraged by that and it works well for him as an artist. It almost feels like a brand he's trying to put on himself now, with all the crazy posts, videos, track names and productions. Guess he's kind of been like that since the beggining so wouldn't say its inauthentic, but for me it feels a bit forced and musically quite bad. He's got so many good 'normal' tracks that it feels a shame that this is more his angle today.

You can definitely make twisted, high energy music without turning exclusively to the gimmicks imo

This is what crowds want to hear at modern gigs now - thats why i stay away haha.

The track is just a mess....give me the old skool Bangin' style of Mauro Picotto anyday,if you want to go harder. At least there was still some structure.
