8/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 June 2013

Oh god its Um. Its Um everyone. CLEAR THE BUILDING!!!!!!!!!!! Um is a madcap from Cambridge who isn’t Syd Barrett but could be if Syd Barrett was still alive, still making ‘music’ and mad as a march horse. This was originally released back in those sun dappled days of 2004 on a cdr and now it is available as a vinyl LP.

Its a smorgasbord of borderline idiot musical vignettes that occasionally hit the high water mark of fellow English eccentrics such as the brilliant Meadow House. There are plenty of tracks that recall the all-over-the-place home made dance music of the sadly gone Spymania label (which spurted forth Cassetteboy amongst others).

At the time of writing I’m struggling to find something as conventional as a tune amongst the flitting of ideas, though its more based around rhythms, bedroom produced slices of atonal pluckings with chanted vocals before the whole thing stops and another idea comes hurtling along. Somewhere between borderline chaos and the kind of blink and you’ll miss it idiot savant meanderings of Jad Fair.

An acquired taste perhaps but if you climb into his world you may be in there for a very, very, long time.
