The Pop Groupからファンクとフリージャズを抽出しモードとしてノスタルジックな映画と美術のエッセンスを散りばめた類稀なバンド。インプロに終始した断片も多いが、ポップスへの憧憬目線も有るところが素晴らしい。21世紀版を是非見てみたい。

T. Rex, D. Bowie, Velvet Underground, B. Enoと、ファン目線のカバーを臆面も無いアレンジでリリースし、其れが最高に似合うバンド。様々なビジュアルセンスは群を抜いていたし、この格好良さは、王道も何周かしてさらに新しいとはセンス=選択能力の高さだと、馬鹿なオレでも分かるEP。

集積され反復する音の断片は後に音塊となり、音楽となるも、後に静寂となり、記憶となる。Post punkの極北に彼らが挑んだ功績は多大だ。Brian EnoとRichard Jamesを繋いだWireの半分は彼らであり、Domeであり、Cupolその他であるのだが、Wireの夜明けが素人同然だった事を改めて鑑みると、オレは20年後の今も自分自身の可能性を否定出来ない。此の事がロックンロールの本質である事を稚拙な音楽人に大声で言っておこう。さらにはWireの残り半分の様に、ポピュラーミュージックとは不可分の関係である事も。

Thanks for Mr. Okuzumi.
