No matter the ridiculousness of the music (be it pop, rock, techno, dub, house, industrial, new wave, psychedelic -no particular order), This band from Screen Gemz, Freur, and both the pop and techno versions of Underworld, created some of the coolest and refreshing music that stands the test of time. Albeit recent fans out there now only have ever heard the newer Underworld (1992 - 2003), it's nice that us old school hardcore fans are still here, nods Bill Skulley. Those old tapes and vinyls are worn out!!!
The re-release of Freur's Doot Doot was a wonderful surprise as most of their stuff is super rare. It's a truly extraordinary cd for it's time and reminds me of how much I truly adored Duran Duran's Rio when I first listened to it. Karl Hyde just has a rapturous voice to listen to, not unlike Simon LeBon.
When the Dubnobasswithmyheadman cd came out in '94 I was totally thrilled they didn't give up, and honestly I was ecstatic with the album...a most brilliant album...one that will never leave this boy's cd player.
I RECOMMEND ANYTHING BY KARL HYDE AND CO.
