- As Long As He Lies Perfectly Still by Schnauser
8/10 Mike Staff review, 16 April 2014
More psychedelic covers from Fruits De Mer. This one's by Schnauser, which sounds appealing to me, like a cross between a much loved synth twiddler and a friendly domestic dog. It's got a Soft Machine cover on one side and a Yes cover on the other. I'm on the Soft Machine one now, 'As Long as He Lies Perfectly Still' it's called, and I like what Schnauser is doing with the synths and the wah guitar, all very well measured and psychedelic without being overdone. It's a weird, stumbly song but warm and fluid in Schnauser's culpable hands.
The version of Yes's 'Astral Traveller' on the other side is totally likeable too, one part Morgan Delt, one part Syd Barrett, one part Magic Roundabout theme. The way the guitar, bass and organ textures are matched with one another is very satisfying and the wibbly psychedelic reworks are sufficiently different from the original for this to be a worthwhile exercise. I find these covers 7"s Fruits de Mer are so fond of rather patchy personally, but I'm happy to give this one my thumb of recommendation.
