Does Karl Hyde have the worst hair in popular music? Anyone who saw Eno/Hyde’s recent performance on Jools Holland will be wondering. Its kind of combed forward at the top, no fringe, semi mullet at the back and dyed a terrible shade of blonde. He’s grinning away on the inner photo to this companion piece to the duo’s recent album ‘Someday World‘ so he’s obvious ...

Does Karl Hyde have the worst hair in popular music? Anyone who saw Eno/Hyde’s recent performance on Jools Holland will be wondering. Its kind of combed forward at the top, no fringe, semi mullet at the back and dyed a terrible shade of blonde. He’s grinning away on the inner photo to this companion piece to the duo’s recent album ‘Someday World‘ so he’s obviously not letting it bother him.

Said album was a mixed bag. Good-ish but never really lived up to the backgrounds of both artists. Almost immediately I’m enjoying this more freeform LP a bit more. Opener ‘Return’ is a nine minute intense jam with frantically strummed guitars, electronic percussion and nice semi-distinct vocals. As different as chalk and a sausage is ‘DBF’ which is a afro-beat-ish funk workout of cut up guitars and electronics,  demi-reminicent of Eno’s Talking Heads collabs. “This is more like it” I hear you all mutter. I'm really not sure on the slow burning reggae -ish cod funk of ‘Time to Waste It’ with its horrible pitch-shifted vocal effects but its a rare mis-step on an album which shows the pair letting their (horrible and non existent (respectively)) hair down and going with the flow a little more than on the parent LP.

Hyde’s vocals are much better and less samey than on the album and the arrangements are much more forward thinking and daring. Sometimes even ol’ timers need to find their stride.
