Liquid Liquid: Slip In & Out Of Phenomenon (Domino) Sorry to bore all the heads reading this mindless bit off guff, but just to re-iterate: Liquid Liquid wrote Cavern and Optimo, one which formed the backbone (bassline) to a certain Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five record that was dead famous back when hip hop and rap was good and worth listening to. This is yet another collection of reissued odds and sods- the three ep's essentially with some other additions. For the those still in the dark this is a motley brew of stripped down percussive punk-funk, stylistically more along the lines of a looser, sunnier A Certain Ratio, or a Rip Rig & Panic with less free Jazz skronk. Our Brian reckons it's had the widescreen re-mastering FX. I like the fact that I can have a bout of nostalgia about the early New York Noise style dance fad, bliss out to the dubbed out horns, melodica , scratchy bass grooves. One of my albums of this week of releases. Out of print for a while now, discover who The Rapture modeled themselves on, what that DFA label's aesthetic is moulded around. This is an important historical document, if you like PIL, Pop Group then you be feeling this.
