Vocoder heavy synth pop from two primary school teachers on William Burnett’s W.T. label. One half of Teachers is acid house and techno producer Tagwell Woods. Their debut 12” Boys is filled with soft experimental pop tracks via Kraftwerk single note melodies that gently rock you along before you realise they are rising to something much more party focused.

What do primary school teachers do when they knock off for the day? Cleanse their ears out of the relentless screaming and mop all the sick out of their hair? Well these two teachers also make a kind of pleasant drifting electronica after 3.20pm of an afternoon. The title is all a bit Operation Yewtree (or whatever the teaching industry equivalent is) but it's ok just so long as they leave titling their record after the little blighters and don't get any more involved.
It's a weird record as it sits in the mid-drift between electronic vocal pop and instrumental electronica but comes down on the side of neither. The pleasant upbeat pop has robo-voiced accompaniment but with the voice used as an instrument. Sometimes I find this a bit frustrating but at other times I let it drift over me and just accept that it's meant more as a soundtrack and they are not here to tell me anything at all.
It's a pleasant way to spend half an hour but maybe lacks anything to remember it by. Would certainly helps relax after a hard day stopping small people eat paint.
