Dublin postpunk / nugaze / electro artist Revolution Above Disorder presents the single , paying tribute to the groundbreaking band Television Personalities and the songwriting genius of Dan Treacy.
Revolution Above Disorder is the solo moniker of Vancouver-based Dubliner (, House of Dolls, ). Revolution Above Disorder’s music is a melting pot of post-punk, psychedelic rock and electronic music. This is guitar-based rock augmented by synths, drum machines and heavily treated instrumentation with haunting reverb-soaked vocals.
"The lofi outsider-art indie-pop of Dan Treacy's Television Personalities occupies a place in my heart all of its own. Stylistically all over the map, Treacy's four decades (and counting) of off-kilter demonstrations of punk and psychedelia are held together by the emotional depth of the songwriting and the vocal delivery, which sees Treacy careering unconstrained from acerbic, to playfully whimsical, to heartbroken and vulnerable. Beautiful," says Stephen Nicholas White.
This cover originally appeared on 'Mummy, Mummy Please Look At Me: A Tribute to the Television Personalities', released via Dandy Boy Records.

"Takes the prize for the perfect nugaze single... if White were looking for a sonic something that balanced out the familiar and innovative, something cold yet calming, something futuristic while rooted in retro electro, then he has solidly hit the nail on the head here" ~
"Vancouver’s cityscape may very well have a subliminal (if not plainly evident) impact on the dark cold and awesome prism through which he channels the better elements of such bands as The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spiritualized, Lush and Catherine Wheel" ~ Amplify Music Magazine
“I love working with Stephen. There’s a trust and flow that spawns a real magic in the music. You can hear the adventure in the songs" ~ Jason Corbett (ACTORS, Jacknife Sound)
"Vocally it’s haunting, and instrumentally, darkly compelling" ~
