- I love Namlook and this one I recently got from a friend who had nearly 50 fax albums I didn't own so my hard drive had a real treat getting them all. we were round his house listening to some random tracks from all the various albums and suddenly track one from this album came on and I was instantly blown away. Pitched up vocals make the talking sound alien like and anything from fax sounds like it was recorded on another planet anyway. Just love everything about this album. Another classic timeless album that will keep me coming back again and again. Check it out.
- This collaboration between HIA and Pete is one of the more organic of his releases with a noted artist: you can hear the touches of both, yet are pulling in the same direction. Full of kitsch 70's style bleeps/blips, and 90's drones.. gotcha. Based as a concept on the utterly fab U.F.O. series from the early 70's, which kept us wee wan 'uns glued to the telly on sunday afternoons, while mum was bending your ear to go out and get some fresh air. HIA has a reputation rooted in the ambient dub scene of the early 90's (how disappointingly THAT fizzled out ), whilst Namlook is, well, Namlook. Expensive to buy, but an investment; both musically and collector-ly. Recommended.
RIP Gerry Anderson, Pete Kuhlman.
- If Aliens listened to music this is what they would be bumping in their spacecrafts.
- I think Tim's comment is quite apt. Lots of pips, squeaks and bops overlay a spacey fluid background broken with melodious and synth riffs just before things become trying. Overall an enjoyable listen
