The Modern Lovers` “Egyptian Reggae” elopes with Landscape`s “Einstein A-Go-Go”, shacks up in the B52`s “Mesopotamia”. George Clinton`s “Atomic Dog” snarls at 4E for pinching its Electro P-Funk bone. Balearic (i.e. synthetic) brass blasts between Plaid`s A.I. and Panda Bear`s harmonies. A mad Jazz. Fusion like Level 42 on nitrous, Wally Badarou with a kazoo. The Suns Of Arqa`s “Sully`s Reel” and Sherwood`s Dub of “Acid Tabla” given a Shangaan lick and clip by Nozinja. Vocals like Lydon`s best muzzein and at least one part Eno & Byrne`s razored groove.
I said, “Nathan, there`s a lot of Eastern hooks on here. You been on holiday?”
“Yeah, but nowhere as exotic as that rooster.”
