This is amazing for me and never fails to rev me up. These guys have so much flexibility and skill. It's backed by one of the best tunes too.
Saw these guys from Tokyo live at Lovebox 2009. Very very good , different taking regular instruments and producing kind of elecktro rock. Very very amazing drumming for a full on 30 minutes. If they play near you these guys are well worth a look !
Editors note : It seems that after 12 years the club (GUANABARA) is no more and it has made way for the Tropicana Beach Club.
Fantastic album. I guess i missed the moment the first time around, i was far too busy being busy. Luckily i walk to work now and charge myself up on this synthony. If ever an album allowed a man to say "hey this is what i can do.shut up and listen' then Perfecto Fluoro is that album.So...Shut up and ...
New Order and Joy Division were and still are are, for me a massively influential group for myself growing up in the 80's and 90's and for a whole generation pre and post emergence of the rave scene. From 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' to 'Blue Monday' (which still sound great) , you only have to look at the British music scene now to see the influence they still have - check out The Editors for a very Joy Division vibe - namely 'Munich' to Black Kids to many electro acts / dj's around for miles.
What always was great for me in purchasing a New Order (or indeed Pulp) album was the fantastically gorgeous artwork of the album sleeves that could only ever be Peter Saville design....From album covers to other Factory Records projects - you will find his mark on it. Personally I find his designs to be fresh, intelligent, polished , colourfull (mostly) and though I am sure many others would describe the postmodernist influence in his work etc etc...to me they just look amazing and he just seems to really 'get' the bands and the music he designs for.
A huge favorite electro group of mine and an admired designer - both excellent in my opinion... but find out for yourselves. Best tracks:Theives Like Us, Fine Time,Regret,Ceremony,True Faith,1963...and the list goes on..
