This is only the second release on Mute’s Liberation Technologies label and follows a promising start for the label which kicked off with Laurel Halo as King Felix. It came as quite a surprise to find out that Karl O’Connor (Regis) and Anthony Child (Surgeon) had began working again as British Murder Boys or rather BMB as they now go by. I recall reading an interview on the split with O’Connor where he said they had to go their separate ways because Child had been sneaking in subliminal flutes into their music without him knowing. Heheh. Anyway it’s a welcome return and its business as usual for two of techno’s most uncompromising artists.
The production on this sounds really top notch, the beats are chunky as hell with gloomy cascading drone-scapes and a pretty nasty aggressive feel although the tempo is moderate. Considering how much time has elapsed it doesn’t feel like any huge step forward, not that that’s a bad thing but I do get the feeling I could be listening to one of their older tracks. I guess it’s just “their sound” really.
‘In Another Country’ is a smart industrial clanker with off-beat drums like a much heavier Maurizio. As it unfolds there’s a distant sense of beauty that emerges from the darkness and all the sinister effects. It reveals a little more on each listen. All in all a well good 12”.
