#378 Josef K – Crazy to Exist


In the annals of post-punk otherness, Josef K has long held a rather exalted place and here’s one of the reasons why. The jagged perfection of “Crazy To Exist”, one of only a handful of songs this Scottish band recorded in their short existence during the early eighties, still sound singular and not the least dated. I first got exposed to their music quite a few years back via the reissue of The Only Fun in Town, and the unrelenting sonic deviance of Josef K’s sound remains lodged in my head ever since. And every time I plug into the crazy rhythms of “Crazy To Exist”, a song filled with absurdities and the pale flowering of alienation, reality disintegrates. – Keith.
