    I was just listening to Mark Lamarrs "God's Jukebox" radio 2 show (very good by the way) and I heard a track from a '97(?) album by Elmo Williams & Hezakiah Early called "Takes One to Know One". It was stunning! So I just ordered a still sealed vinyl copy from the US . God damn t'Interweb....no wonder I'm constantly broke....

    Anyway, there's only two of them drums/guitars playing some fiery rough n ready blues! Sort of like Black Keys I suppose but much earthier, grittier....and better!

    Well guess what...

    The track I adore - the best rocked-out 3:40 of lunacy I've heard in ages - "Gum":

    Well nothing else on the album is even remotely similar!!!



    The whole album is united by extremely staccatto combination of synth, live instrument, scratch and mixback/sample work, but most is much more downbeat, some even downright easy-listening/ambient here and there.

    About 80% of it is good,less atrio of fillers - "Toner" , the completely pointless "Scum", which is at leastrelieved by its brevity and the really-couldn't-be-arsed closer "Sleep Warm" which outstays its 4:41 welcome by about 4:40 and is left out of the Japanese release for some explicable reason...

    OK, I'm beinga tad too negative; what remains is a damn-good EP's worth of enaging, fun electro pop, with that characteristically Japanese sense of child-like playfulness, which here comfortably manages to avoid tweeness - sitting somewhere between Nobukazu Takemura and Hyperkinako in that respect!

    "Gum" aside - which is the album's "Marmite" track anyway I suspect - what remains: "Sensuous", "Fit Song", "Breezin'", "Wataridori", "Omstart", "Beep It" and "Like A Rolling Stone" seemingly reprise Cornelius' earlier works without revisiting old ground, and in their genre frankly take some beating. Visceral pleasure aside, many - notably "Sensuous" - are also great little "impress your mates" hifi work-outs, recording quality is good (Warner Japan), production values are high, stereo imaging first rate and highly separated, and dynamics frankly scary in places

    If you think this might be for you, do listen to samples first - easy listening it ain't...
    But equally, if you don't have a big shit-eating grin on your face by the end of "Gum", report to your nearest undertaker toot sweet...

    Nice write up.... my experience of what I presume to be Japanese electropop is limited to the soundtrack to the Playstation game "Vib Ribbon" provided by "Laugh and Beats" the game itself is a mind- . never mind the music..

    Great game that! I ahd a mate at uni who had it, played it many a time after the influence of...er chemicals. Very cool how you can use your own CDs too. I was under the impression that that game is a bit rare and rather collectable these days (I could be completely wrong on that though)....
