Boomkat product review for:

people like us & wobbly - Music For The Fire

Plunderphonic goddess Vikki Bennett links with her American counterpart Wobbly aka Jon Leidecker to create an album of obsessive sample contexturology. Between them, Bennett and Leidecker have fashioned a vast back catalogue of dadaist sample collages, shredding the fabric of popular culture via fractions of extracted audio and visual nuggets that strangely and humourously reflect the world about us. Their work has been recognised by many of the world's leading art institutions including Tate Modern, The ICA, Pompidou Centre, Barcelona's Sonar festival and the excellent WMFU radio station, where Vikki holds a regular show. As the artists themselves explain "'Music For the Fire' is a plunderphonic concept album depicting the lifespan of a relationship, as told through samples of hundreds of different songs and voices who had no idea they were all telling the same story until they were all spliced together", the end result is a relentlessly fractious affair, commanding your attention like some illicit, under-the-counter Hanna-Barbera production that's been left inside a vat of lysergic yoghurt for the last 40 years. Commendably, they do manage to stick to the narrative of their mandate, which will become clear with repeated listens, but the initial thrill is evocative of some half-remembered hallucination that never quite makes itself lucid, retaining a Lynchian sense of humour and febrility that'll warrant much closer scrutiny. In other words, it's a chuffing mental listen that you'll get a massive kick out of if you like Ergo Phizmiz, Girl Talk or Matmos.
