Album Review: Terrorball - How I Learned to Stop Worrying (2016)

Self described as "earth's penultimate sonic ensemble of one", Gareth Pemberton is a Hamilton (NZ)-based producer who releases music under the name of Terrorball. I’ve blogged about him previously on everythingsgonegreen. I really don’t know a lot about him, but he appears to be on some sort of relentless and unrepentant mission to bring disco back out of the closet, with the vast majority of his work having a distinctly old school retro-funk flavour to it. At last count, Terrorball had nine albums available as name-your-price downloads on Bandcamp, all released post-2011, with his latest work, the cold war-themed How I Learned To Stop Worrying, officially hitting cyberspace earlier this week … although regular followers of his work (on Soundcloud) will know that Pemberton tends to (advance) drip feed tracks at a fairly prolific rate, so much of this has been available for a while. Quite possibly the best thing to come out of the ‘Tron since, since, um, that last good thing, that other time.
