Starting out with the positively lovely "Iambic 5 poetry", we can definitely hear a softer side to TJ, if you can say there is one (especially after the Miles Davis-esque freakout that was Music is Rotted one Note). Of course, saying that, we launch straight into "Fly Street", which is another wacked-out drum and bass exercise. More eerie jazz with "The Tide" & "Splask", to straight-up funk of "Two Bass Hit". "Varkatope" is another great drums'n'acid workout. We close with "Gong Acid", which is, given the rest of this great EP, a bit of a disappointment...

Worth seeking out.

There are some albums to buy for one song, and this could be one of those. It's not that the rest lack beauty, but that Iambic 5 Poetry is brilliant. This is a rare song which I can enjoy after hearing repeated for hours - the blend of drums, bass, chimes, electronics and spooky whispering feel like they should go on forever. You can focus on something different each time, thanks to the layering of sounds.

Fly Street seems flat in direct comparison to Iambic 5 Poetry. The Tide is interesting, feeling quite cinematic, something from a spooky chase on foot through a foggy night in some metropolis. Splask feels like free jazz plus electronics, and doesn’t quite catch my ear. 2 Bass Hit (Dub) reminds me a lot of Primus, mostly due to the funky basswork. Varkatope is a really interesting track, with weird bass and creepy electronic keyboard type sounds. Gong Acid is comprised mostly of percussion, with minimal electronics in the background, sounding a bit like more traditional Japanese drumming to me for some reason.

In the end, I keep coming back to Iambic 5 Poetry. The rest seem to rely on a single instrument or sound-set, none as beautifully complex as that first track. I’ll listen to the whole mini-album, but the first gets the most play from me.

This EP just fucks with everything else. Music is one rotted note. Never mind Can & PIL and never mind Drum and Bass, this is the business!!!
