Superb LP From Lidell. Everything from bent dancefloor wobblers, chewed up jungle beats, drones to murky blues funk.

What a load of shitty noise, my 3&5 year old kid's could make music better than this cack. I'm so happy I only paid a quid for it out of Poundland, worst quid ever soent.

Jamie Lidell's debut, MUDDLIN GEAR, came via Warp and Spymania, Squarepusher's former label, and it's the latter influence that shows. It's chaotic, filled with random squelches and noise, such as on the vocal snips on "Untitled" or the electro overload of "In Inphidelik" or hard rock interlud of "Da Doo Doo." Many tracks, though, do show a jazz influence. "Said Dram Scam," for instance, amidst the untidiness, maintains a fascinating drum pattern, while the bass on "The Cop It Suite," seems transported straight from a smoke-filled jazz bar. "Daddy's Car" has a hint of the R&B soul for which Lidell would become known later -- though filtered and set low here. But he tries his hand at other styles as well, from the pure drone of "Dröön_99" to the barbershop quartet of "Daddy No Lie." An interesting start, no doubt.
