- Evil by Konrad
More bonkers early 80’s electro-pop which someone, somewhere has decided will be a good idea to re-issue.
The package is lovely with a bonus 7” in tow. Konrad, seen on the sleeve implausibly in nuns outfit was some kind of Studio 54 dwelling eccentric, long since dissappeared but in true Rodriguez style was found when he posted a comment on a review about the album revealing his identity.
The music is like a kind of chirpy Soft Cell on ‘Music Scientist’ whereas ‘My Girl Likes to Buy’ is truly terrible - like Vincent Price trying electro-pop. The whole premise seems to be a kind of swing-like jazzy electronic music, Joe Jackson making music on early ‘80’s synths with lots of glitterball disco inflections. ‘DMZ Bolero’ at least has the kind of discofied strut of some of Chas Jankel’s experiments in funk.
