Brian keeps trying to make me listen to this record at the “right speed” of 45rpm, where it's a technicolour romp of bouncy “cosmic disco” that flashes by at a queasy pace, but you should try this shit at 33. Seriously, it's a squelchy dub-disco workout with weird detached pitched-down vocals and bubbling arpeggios and filthy primal dance grooves that's bringing to mind that amazing Aristocrat P Child tape on Sun Ark. Even when the swelling horns and hard soul vocals start cutting through on 'De Javu' there's still that hypnotic tribal disco stomp underpinning everything. It's one of those records where the bright, fun tones are the focus and at “full speed” it comes across like an ADD Apparat Organ Quartet tackling the works of Jason Forrest. Completely brash party mayhem with a spacey psychedelic hypnotic quality to it. Some of the beats and tones are pure '80s cheese-funk relics delivered with such aggressive conviction that it's hard not to get swept along in it all, but please take my advice and at least give the dubby 33rpm option a try. That's what's really getting my five stars. Oh, and there's an amazing gatefold sleeve with printed inners with lots of clean lines and bright colours from design titan Kim Hiorthoy, to boot. Luxurious indulgence all round!
