Boomkat Product Review:
After 30 years spent sitting in a San Francisco basement, this incredible lost opus from disco pioneer Patrick Cowley and Indoor Life's Jorge Socarras is finally unearthed and given a much needed lease of life by Stefan Goldman and his Macro label. This is some prime wavey-disco and proto-techno gear, produced between 1976-79 at a time when Cowley was starting to get recognition for his synthesizer driven disco tracks and edits, but also studying electronic composition in San Fran, concocting with Socarras an ahead-of-its-time blend of avant-synth-pop and disco-electronica which recalls or even prempts artists like Talking Heads, Units, The Human League or Chris & Cosey. The much-talked about 'Soon' is quite astonishing, sounding like the pair have been devouring Bowie, Kraftwerk and Eno, while 'You Laugh At My Face' imagines Martin Hannett working with Units three years before it never happened. The OTT enunciations of 'I'll Come See You' uncannily approximates a whole wave of 80's pop and new-wave disco, while the crazy thrills of 'Eddie Go To My Head' almost feels like the Talking heads experimenting with Hi-NRG before 'Cars Collide' rocks out with shredded California punk guitars and camp sneering vocals. Oh yeah, and then there's the insane kraut-rock-disco head melter 'Robot Children' sounding like Kraftwerk jamming with Conrad Schnitzler, or hypnotic traces of Severed Heads style synths on 'In And Out' made only a few years before them, or the remarkable synth-on-tape pop-experiment 'Burn Brighter Flame'. This album has rightly been causing a stir with record buyers everywhere, filling in theoretical gaps between many influential artists but standing on it's own as a perfect example of what's lurking between the cracks of pop history's hidden record shelves.
