Boomkat Product Review:
Luc Ferrari’s sensually-focussed early ‘80s work ‘Sexolidad’ appears alongside a killer, technoid piece rife with metallic vocals and electro rhythms on vinyl for the first time.
Perhaps not the one to play anyone who says avant-garde music isn’t sexy, the full orchestration of ‘Sexolidad’, while intently focussed on the corporeal and the carnal, is probably only going to turn on a niche group of french pensioners.
However, ‘Dialogue Ordinaire Avec La Machine’ (1982-83) is a real wonder, mixing a punny conversation (in french, but we can chuckle at the translation) with cut-up rhythms and progressively weirder vocal processing that eventually ends up keening into chaotic dissonance and electro-dub rhythms recalling Pan Sonic or Muslimgauze jamming with Suicide and Craig Leon. Seriously! Aye, you’ve found our kink.
