Tetsuo / Brondie - Love For Debbie 3" CDr





The first track is long and live, sounding like an extreme re-work of Cautious Lip, as if that screaming finale of Debbie Harry's had been gleefully extended distorto stylee. Sonics 'top end' surfing the microphone in unholy screeeech. Under this a mutant Youth Nabbed as Sniper / Art of Noise percussive fusion skates around as Japanese samples are leisurely thrown to the lions – My Love For You Is Like A Claw indeed – simply marvellous stuff from Tetsuo... The remainder of the disc is by a lo-fi Japanese tribute band called Brondie who come across like a phase fx-ed karaoke. Three short(ish) tracks that have a strange ‘heard through a wall’ aesthetic, as if you were listening to a recently unearthed early demo tape. A great subversion of the tribute album available from those lovely people over at At War with False Noise, while stocks last that is...
