4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 29 Jan 2003
Format: Audio CD
I was expecting to loathe this, not having listened to it in some time & an unadmirer of Ryder's charmless Black Grape. But I found myself having that Proustian thing & being surprised at how good this album was...
The late, legendary producer Martin Hannett did what John Cale mostly could not on the patchy 24 Hour Party People debut- taking the strange indie-funk of the Mondays & giving it a groove. Of course lots of people were doing similar stuff before this: The Wolfgang Press, The Woodentops,A Certain Ratio, 23 Skidoo, Gang of Four, The Slits, This Heat!. A listen to Can's 1972 classic Tago Mago (featuring a song called Halleluwah!) will demonstrate that the Mondays/Madchester thing was a slightly ignorant media creation.
But the songs here are fun, and the album has dated better than the over-rated Stone Roses debut- which has about as much resonance for me as the second James album & appears less original the more I hear 60's compilations like Nuggets. Brain Dead quotes a line Jagger spoke from Altamont (see Gimme Shelter) & Performance references the classic Jagger-starring film of the same name from Nic Roeg & Donald Cammell. Mad Cyril sounds like a funky mess (the Peel session is even better), though Moving in With is a superior song (Ryder offerring a nursery rhyme chorus: turkey-lurkie etc- the kind of inspired stuff you'd expect from Mark E Smith).
Lazyitis drifts into the post-modern, quoting bits of Ticket to Ride, Family Affair & David Essex (!)- though Fat Lady Wrestlers appears to sum up the album best (especially if gazing at the pornographic image on the sleeve!).
