Criminal clonk

Bracing vigour & spikiness in this exemplary, lithe exhibit from Strut's forthcoming retrospective of Ze's punk-funk/no wave/cowbell clonk - by a group overlooked at the time by at least one of LMYE's co-authors, despite his ownership of Mutant Disco (& who, indeed, are still obscure enough to not make the Ze 30 cover ahead of even Marie et les Garcons...).

Exemplary except for the criminal harmonica breakdown at 1:55 (& again, only worse, at 2:24), that is... Disco re-editors*, start your engines!

Comically hostile review by Metal Bastard Goes Soft here.

* Talking of whom, try Mau: he almost redeems fairly loathsome Fleetwood Mac track with some lovely Swedish "violation" (those hi-hats & keys!). His remorseless eclecticism also takes in Black Sabbath, Buddy Guy, Cocteau Twins, Bruce Springsteen &, most successfully, Roxy Music...

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
