Modern age information society versus privacy in Post-Electro/Synth-Rock video.
Croc Shop was conceived in a flat above a record shop in West Berlin. They released their debut album in 1988, produced by Dave Fielding of the Chameleons UK, which featured a dark goth-rock based sound that only hinted at what was to come. Over the next few years, the band transitioned toward electronic industrial, after an ongoing replacement of people with machines. In 1993 they released their first commercial CD, Celebrate the Enemy.
2004 saw the release of Croc Shop's SEA (self-extracting archive), featuring a double-length CD chronology of the band's musical output. Pursuing other musical interests, the duo took a longer-than-expected break from recording together.
Some 15 years later, with the 'election' of and chaos caused by Trump, the band's political and creative fires were rekindled and they began to work on new material which resulted in the blistering 9-song album "Resist!" Released May 2020 digitally on all platforms; followed up shortly by "The Rest In Pieces," a 30-song "Rest Of" Croc Shop.
"Perpetual Sequence" is the 9th full-length Album by Croc Shop, featuring long-time members Mick Hale and vMarkus. The duo takes a decidedly Post-Electro, Pop & Synth-Rock approach on these 11 captivating tracks; with occasional nods to their goth-rock and electro-industrial origins.
Croc Shop has toured heavily in support of their albums, across North America and Europe, and have garnered loyal fans the world over. They have appeared on stage with bands such as Front 242, Project Pitchfork, Nitzer Ebb, The Damned, Numb, Switchblade Symphony, Xymox and Rammstein. The band has been described live as an "audiovisual-assault" with multimedia video projections, energetic stage presence, and bold lighting.
