Dark arts

How to characterise Dark Mark Vs Skeleton Joe, the eponymous debut from Mark Lanegan and Joe Cardamone? "Gothic death disco"? That label certainly fits opening tracks 'Living Dead' and 'No Justice' as well as it did pre-album appetisers 'Dark Mark Theme' and 'Skeleton Joe Manifesto'. But that only tells half the story of a split-personality record that grew on me and has continued to do so since I submitted my Buzz review.
