By Wire Happy
This CD is a strange one. Basically Wire Happy is a guy called Kevin who sits at his fourtrack machine making recordings of very short length and fitting lots onto an album.
These short little bursts of electronic magic are overdubbed with fuzzy vocals and all kinds of samples, this stuff is really odd but impossible not to like.
He's got good ideas and lays them down in a real sleazy underground sound recording. The humour of the record is shown throughout as well with the odd cliché and the odd bit of cheese at times, it is obvious that he isn't mega-serious, but still enjoys producing and listening to all of his work.
It really does sound like something that could be the soundtrack to some weird British Indie film, the film would most likely be about drugs and women with facial hair. I don't know it really is a strange one is this, but a damn good strange one.
I like things a bit different, and this is definitely different, maybe a little tiresome after 23 tracks but still entertaining after a play through of it. As we enter the mind of Wire Happy, there's no escape!!!
