Alan Klien ofStratis is responsible for this electronic disco library music atrocity. It’s the kind of laughable crud you’d expect to hear in the disco scenes from ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’, with the evil Madonna prancing embarrassingly amongst a legion of leather jackets , Ray Bans, and hair styles with their own personal ozone holes.
Having said that, I really enjoyed listening to this, in an ‘Incredibly Strange Music’ kind of way. Its so bland it makes elevator music sound like The Stooges; but isn’t that some special form of Avant Garde statement? Wasn’t the Beatles most experimental act splitting up so that Macca could form Wings? It’s far too easy to fly the flag for Coltrane, Nurse With Wound, and The Los Angeles Free Music Society(LAFMS). It’s far harder to have this on your coffee table and explain it away.Its a cop out to cut phone conversations short because you’re listening to the ‘Trane’. Try saying, “Sorry, my ‘Too cool for skool’ buddy, can’t talk right now because i’m listening to the 96 Eyes album”. Now that’s challenging.
