You just know a record by Secret Mommy is gonna be a
bit off it's chump. Just got these eclectic CD's in on Powershovel (see: Directorsound
in Clint's pile) & this is possibly the sound of Joseph Nothing
headbutting Mochipet in the face then being sick all over Matmos.
The concept of sampling human activities is nothing new (here he's apparently
recorded professional athletes & gym compatible friends then cut up the samples into
a glitch-a-thon) & the tracks stutter & try to out-awkward each other
yet there's a freshness to this difficult but absorbing album, the kind you'd
expect from Mouse On Mars at their most abstract & playful.
