8/10 Clinton Staff review, 18 March 2011

Umberto, Umberto they drink it in the um.. Congo. The premise behind this solo project of Expo '70 bassist Matt Hill is to re-interpret the classic 70's synth soundtracks by the likes of Goblin and John Carpenter even to the point that we have tracks entitled 'Opening Credits' (which comes across as a synth re-interpretation of Joy Divisions 'Decades', (The same melody - exactly) and 'End Credits'. What we get is heavily synthesized sounds, ethereal keyboards, eerie soundscapes - perfect horror soundtrack fodder. The boys in the office who are more aware of the Italian '70s and '80s "giallo" (horror/thriller) genre of film are in thrall to the accuracy of this homage. Whether its more than that and can be taken on its own terms by the ill informed likes of myself remains to be seen but what we have is an extremely accurate pastiche/ homage which will also appeal to fans of the similarly influenced Zombi and Chrime in Choir. Previously only available as a limited edition CDr and cassette tape via Sonic Meditations. This is a limited vinyl re-press of 500 copies.
