Blunt translation of latest review.   Leave a comment

“PETE UMNO PRESSURE

Pete Um’s songular short stories of almost noise-core shortness actually demand in the rarest cases more time for verification on our part. When he e.g. in “floorclothes”* (as a Genesis P. Orridge as such would understand it) in “The God Of War” calls “Mr. Tony Blair” in a short mantra, no further minutes of filler are needed. Pete Um presents himself here as the master of the uber strangeing* of cantilevered Vaudeville/Air conglomerations and through this he reaches a partial depersonification and an onomatopoeic utopianism, as perhaps only the Residents have ***** him during their best moments. One may also gladly label something like this modern Krautrock. At any rate, Gagarin Records serves as exactly the right place of refuge for this pictoral music existing in a world of wonder to the power of 18. (Gagarin Rec.) Donis”

* a direct translation. I think it might be as meaningless in German.
***** no idea.

Felix says that this guy is of the opinion that some of my songs could be hits if they weren’t so odd.
