Techno Animal – Flight Of The Hermaphrodite

A natural one to follow Davis’ ‘Rated X’, especially considering how  Kevin Martin used the aforementioned Miles track to end the first disc of his’Jazz Satellites Vol 1′ compilation; with devastating effect.
Here Kevin Martin and Justin Broadrick go for monomaniacal, super heavy Zombie Trip-Hop that totally stands apart from the countless bland tracks that came under that dubious genre title. Acid squelches and sampled blasts of horn sections pepper the track throughout; with it eventually quietening down a touch, sounding like something from ‘Ambient Works Volume 2’ with beats.
Great track.
Unfortunately, the monomaniacal feel gets a bit much for the rest of the first half of the album, ‘Re-Entry’; with the outfit using the same blunt instrument to get their message across. However, there are some amazing, tripped out soundscapes on disc two.
From 1995.
