6/10 Mike Staff review, 27 July 2011
This is nuts. First of all the artwork of the copy I'm reviewing has a load of random crap thrown in - a circle of foil and one of coloured acetate...a computer printout with a single strand of tinsel sellotaped to it, that sort of thing. The sleeve itself is a total thing of beauty, too, screenprinted onto sparkly grey paper. As for the record, it's a joyously experimental and totally weird experience based around turntables being powered by exercise bicycles! It was recorded live in New York. It's quite disorientating really, just lots of wibbly slowed down vinyl noises and the like. Brian just noticed that one of the records they're sampling is 'Flowers of Romance' by PiL but I'd not have known if he didn't point it out. This is very much on the noise art/concréte side of things which isn't really my bag, but it seems pretty expertly done. There's always something going on and it's confusing me and making me feel slightly queasy.
