BBC Review

Luke Vibert makes most musicians seem lazy. The good friend and sometime musical sparring partner of the Aphex Twin has recorded 15 albums in a plethora of styles, and under nine different names.

The cheeky title (linking the Cornishman's hometown with the two birthplaces of dance music) is an indication of the playful sense of humour, and retro tendencies, on display here.

Several tracks on the eclectic CDR are reminiscent of earlier Vibert incarnations. At various points he summons up the spirit of '87 ("Argument Fly" and "Chicago, Detroit, Redruth"'s acid house); '93 ("Radio Savalas"' intelligent techno); '95 ("Rotting Flesh Bags"' trip-hop) and even '76-meets-'96 ("Comfycozy"'s cocktail bar Weather Report-goes-drum'n'bass).

There are plenty of ravey touches (speeded-up vocal samples, synth stabs), stacks of electro and a hell of a lot of acid! In fact, your enjoyment of this album may depend on your tolerance for those famous squelchy Roland 808 and 303 sounds.

Much like Charlton FC's seasons under Alan Curbishley, the album starts strongly before tailing off somewhat. "Breakbeat Metal Music" hits the dancefloor with speak and spell samples, funky breakbeats and bustling bass; "God" is queasy, tripped-out coma-hop; and "Rotting Flesh Bags"' wah-wah keys and trippy flute get horizontally funky.

Not every track hits these heights. There's too much downtempo electro for my liking, and acid extravaganza "Argument Fly" seems to go on forever. But if you're an acid house granddad who's not quite ready for the pipe and slippers, this may be just the ticket. --Ben Wood

Format: Audio CD
Anyone who's a fan of Luke Vibert's work so far, will love this. In short, the tunez continue Luke's amazing habit of somehow combining disparate elements into a unified, and incredibly satisfying whole: atmosphere, fun & humour, abstraction & weirdness, ghostliness; all meld together with the usual verve. Luke Vibert's sense for melody shines throughout, and as ever there's just so much to listen to, so much there both in the foreground and the background. Luke's trust in subtlety and purity means he's never scared to leave a melody or sample bare, simple and harmonically uncluttered, and yet in other parts the rhythms, tones and melodies meet in the middle to create great landscapes of infectious sound. I'm only half a dozen listens into this album, and already totally absorbed by it, with every tune seemingly a corker; the music is joyous and uplifting, yet mysterious too. Drum programming and production are of Luke's usual standard: enough said!
Thanks, for yet more magic, Luke!

Please note that the description above is wrong. This is the fourth album to be released under the name Luke Vibert (the first two were 'Big Soup' on Mo'Wax, the second was 'Yoseph' on Warp) and the second for Mu Records (the first was 'Lover's Acid'). It could even be the fifth if you include download albums (see 'Compilation Tracks For Which I Was Never Paid' available at bleep.com, featuring tracks released as Luke Vibert and under his aliases Wagon Christ and Plug).
Anyway, I haven't heard this album in full but I've listened to the samples here at Amazon and it sounds like it will be another cracker for Mu, unlike some of the strange nonsense he has released as The Ace Of Clubs recently. Inevitably with a guy who reckons he could produce an album a week, not all of it is going to be great. I'm all for experimentation (hell, I'm the most open-minded person I know musically speaking), but sometimes you have to get a grip or you're in danger of sliding into unlistenable prog-electronica wa*k as Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Mike Paradinas are all prone to doing at times. Luke Vibert has always been the sanest and most accessible of the four and I guess he is welcome to occassionally go 'off the reservation' for the benefit of people who like that sort of thing, as long as he returns to making the stuff I like as Luke Vibert or Wagon Christ and ensures that the really weird stuff is released under other aliases so I don't buy it by mistake.
Anyway, this sounds like it should be a really good album and people like me who love Mr Vibert's music (or at least the stuff that doesn't make you feel you're losing your mind) should go to bleep.com as they can download all of his early Wagon Christ work, fully remastered, which was deleted when the Rising High label went under, plus the 'Compilation Tracks' album I mentioned, some other rare Luke Vibert and Plug EPs and the collaboration EP with Jean-Jacques Perry called 'Moog Acid'.

I wouldn't recommend this album to Wagon Christ fans because it lacks the quirky feel of Tally Ho! and Musipal and sounds like quite a lot of other dance or electronica (it is far more "conventional" and repetitive, for a start). I know this is being traded under the name Luke Vibert so perhaps it is best not to make such assumptions about it. A couple of songs contain samples Wagon Christ fans will recognise but there are no real stand-out tracks. Yes this album is very polished and assured but it just doesn't grab you in the way his other, earlier work does.

Luke Vibert '- Chicago, Detroit, Redruth 13 July 2012
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Luke Vibert's salute to the origins of techno and house, CHICAGO, DETROIT, REDRUTH, starts off with a worthy piece of melodic breaks, "Comfycozy," which wouldn't have been out of place on a Wagon Christ album. "Brain Rave" and "Argument Fly" gets back to the acid that Vibert now associates with his own name. The acid finds its way into tracks throughout the album, as a matter of fact, making those in which it doesn't quite show up all the more unique. "Breakbeat Metal Music," for instance, with its vocoder explanation, is so simple with its exploration of the beat that it works beautifully, while "God" gets all blissed out, with appropriate samples. "Rotting Flesh Bags" is actually much more pleasant than its title suggests, and "Swet" works up exactly that while paying cheeky homage to The Jetsons. This is an album that goes places.
