8/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 May 2015

It was whilst searching the internet for some Puff Tube song or other that once again the extent of John Peel’s influence became apparent to me. Basically, no Peel,  no Puff Tube - simple as that.

On playing this unusual compilation of early 2000’s oddballs Fish From Tahiti I immediately thought of John Peel. This would be exactly the sort of completely inexplicable music that he would champion. Comprising of various singles on various labels, the opening two tracks are muted dub overlaid with Japanese (Chinese?) dialogue. Strangely comforting. Phil’s ears pricked at ‘Earhats’ -a simple loop of some old jazz number or another that is effective in doing absolutely nothing but looping in an extremely effective manner - kinda reminds me of that Evolution Control Committee stuff. Elsewhere there are homespun loops, hazy hypnotic synth and extraordinarily mundane snatches of dialogue taken from language tapes and medical recordings.

Always unusual, always fascinating, comparisons are hard but I hear the cut and splice of People Like Us, Throbbing Gristle, Nurse With Wound,  early Anticon and a particularly English style of humorous weirdness.
