8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 27 July 2011
Tipped Bowler Tapes hook us up with a 12" 45 loosely inspired by the club format and featuring none other than Tomutonttu and Leeds's very own astral pioneer Neil Campbell. Campbell kicks things off with stuttered interpretation of propulsive dancefloor format. Though the astral tomfoolery and skittish melodies remain a Campbell institution he does his best to instill the cosmic onslaught of 'Wet Wheel' with the sensibilities and form of a classic club track. As a result this is one of Campbell's most accessible jams that reminds me of Load records duo Wizardzz. Flip it and Tomutonttu's Jan Anderzén gets busy deconstructing the very foundations of club music, pretty much stripping it of all its principle elements and replacing them with totally fried digital squiggles and melodic abstractions. It literally sounds like a dude jamming along with a bunch of Commodore 64 games that are all playing at the same time and is delivered with Jan's usual attention to detail and humorous charm. Comes on purple vinyl lovingly packaged in a screen-printed sleeve.
