En el numero anteriores recomendaba el primer disco de Slapp Happy / Henry Cow “Desperate Straights” como uno de los mejores discos de progresivo vanguardia en los 70s. Deceit pudiera decir que es el mejor disco de Progresivo vanguardia

en los 80’s donde se mezcla todos los experimentos y radicalismos politico de Henry Cow, Art Bears con los nuevos sonidos rockeros y punk de fines de los 70s. Charles Hayward en la percusion y ex - Quiet Sun (Manzanera-Eno) es increible detras de todos esos sonidos percusivos junto a la colaboracion de Charles Bullet y Garet Williams en las letras y demas instrumentos. Un album que en estructura es menos experimetal que su primer disco pero que a la vez es

mas complejo y exigente.

“Sleep es el primer tema del disco con sonidos a lo Peter Gabriel III y Johnny

Warman. “Paper Hats y Shrink Wrap” tiene el sonido percusivo y experimental

de Negativiland y Biota. “Triumph, Radio Prague y Hi Baku Sho” son temas con sonidos experimentales en la onda de Fred Frith solista. SPQR, Cenotaph, Independence son mas comerciales con toques de rock 80s a lo Camberwel Now de C. Hayward. “Makeshift Swahili y A New Kind of Water” son los mejores temas del disco que mezclan la furia de bandas como Killing Time, John Zorn’s Naked City con sonidos intrigantes tipo Residents y Snakefinger. Un disco recomendable dentro del genero avant pero que lamentablemente es muy dificil de conseguir debido a la poca distribucion.

well, what do we expect paper hats? or maybe even roses? the sound of explosions? oh no. is this any easier? comfy? climax? ego? decorations up or down? the sound of explosions? what does this tune signify? what is its meaning? is it really that straightforward? or are our ears beyond words?

history repeats itself remembrance sunday a war to end all wars and the war that came after that to keep freedom's flag flying

lest we forget the glorious dead poppy day remember poppies are red and the fields are full of poppies

and when the lights go on again all over the world and when the boys come home all over the world rain and snow will be all that fall from out of the sky a kiss won't mean goodbye when johnny comes marching home

I don1t know either, what is the answer? we were told to expect more and now that we1ve got more we want more, we want more

we have moved from a to x this welfare state is our progress the size of it all carries us along more equals better, it1s what we want our energy is endless it seems it1s there when we need it it we1ve got men on the job

we finance clinics to research a cure for cancer, our least vague fear a new kind of water a new way of breathing always somehow a wonder cure all turns up when we need it we1ve got men on the job

you know from experience the creature comforts, a house that1s warm your body would choose all this of course! it1s innate, we1re selfish but what if there1s not enough to go round defence is needed we1ve got some odd men in odd jobs

we have moved from a to z this nuclear state is our demise fly away peter, hide away paul who can watch as the earth burns, shatters and dies? failsafe, foolproof, we1ve heard that before good sense is needed let1s hope we1ve got men on the job

the size of it all carries us along more equals better, it1s what we want you know from experience your body would choose all this
