Your Future Our Clutter (Update)
This here blog was quite possibly the first website to post a (rather half-assed, let’s face it) review of the new Fall album. It seems only right that Bubblegum Cage III should be quick off the mark with some comments on the bonus tracks that come with the vinyl version, which just (finally) got released.
They’re great! “986 Generator”, which might just be the best thing on the whole album, consists of little more than a signature MES rant, a menacing kick-drum stomp, a few banjo licks and a very familiar slide guitar part (a segment of this track also crops up at the end of “Y.F.O.C./Slippy Floor”). “Get a Summer Song Goin'” is pretty damn good too – a mid-tempo, fuzzed-out avant garage number with a magnificently anomalous techno bridge.
No MP3s for you this time – that would rather defeat the purpose of vinyl-only bonus tracks, wouldn’t it? But the LP’s well worth buying – because it’s bloody great and it comes on excellent-sounding heavyweight vinyl.
