- Landing + Headgit by Githead
8/10 Brian Staff review, 10 August 2010
You've got to grasp opportunities when they present themselves have you not? Espying a pile of prospective review CDs I took the most interesting looking ones & recalled seeing the name Githead in a Wire article earlier this year. It's Colin Newman from (the band) Wire and Robin Rimbaud AKA Scanner plus 2 compadres. I would be expecting something a great deal more challenging from these arty behemoths but what you get for your wonga on 'Landing' is a clean, driving take on "indie" rock music, brilliantly produced and undeniably powerful sounding but somehow a little bland and pedestrian in structure for my ears? Bass player Malka Spigel adds a little bit of cool European chic to proceedings with her airy, detached vocals on 'Take Off' and others, plus there's a strong Stereolabean essence in the squalling motorik groove that is blatantly prevalent on much of the album. I reckon this CD would make for good background music in a slightly left-field designer drinkerie but as far as for thought-provoking home listening, i'm surprised to hear such revolutionary minds playing so damn safe! Certainly not offensive by any means however.
