Boomkat Product Review:
Erstwhile Depeche Mode producer Alan Wilder’s industrial jazz-noir salvo of 2000 returns to circulation with bonus tracks.
Recoil’s fifth studio album features a heavy roll call of guests including the possessed spirit of Diamanda Galás and 1940s gospel singers Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet lending to a cinematically rich record underlined by bass guitar from Curve’s Dean Garcia. It was inspired by Wilder and his partner Hepzibah Sessa (Miranda Sex Garden) witnessing a Tornado Bomber hitting a hillside in front of them during a trip to Scotland, and thus has somethgin of a Ballardian/Cronenbergian appeal to its lust for life/death with clearly resonated with that sexy bastard Trent Reznor as it was notably played prior to NIN shows on their 2000 tour.
The original album’s 11 tracks, including the Moby-paralleling Blues-electronic fusion ‘Jezebel’ and the particularly Barry Adamson-esque drama of ’Supreme’ are now supplemented, via digital version, by ruder jungle rework on ‘Jezebel (Filthy Dog Mix)’, and Moby’s appearance on a rework of the 1992 blues-electronic fusion ‘Electro Blues for Bukka White (2000 Mix)’, plus entirely exclusive bonus cuts such as the sleazy ‘New York Nights’ and hollering swagger of ‘’Don’t Look Back’ calling to mind Kid Koala in its scratched-up sampledelia, while ‘Black Box (Complete)’ perhaps hews closest to DM’s output of that ‘90s era.
