Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There have been a few compilations of Josef K - `Endless Soul', `Young and Stupid' - as well as reissues like `The Only Fun in Town' and several live albums, but `Entomology' feels like the definitive compilation of the shortly lived/hugely influential act known as Josef K. As several have pointed out, this is very much a companion to last year's compilation of Postcard-era Orange Juice, the fantastic `The Glasgow School.'

Josef K were label mates and relatives of O J, their darker cousins if you like - as with OJ, they had clearly listened to `Spiral Scratch' and the angular joy that was Television, but unlike OJ, they were a bit darker. Their name, stemming from Franz Kafka's `The Trial', is a hint at the fact they were probably closer to the long-coated acts with a hint of the gothic at the time - `Drone' sounds like the missing link between Joy Division and Swell Maps, while the syn-drum elements and wild guitar are similarly JD on `Sense of Guilt' - one of several tracks stemming from the aborted debut album `Sorry for Laughing' (I'm also reminded a little of Paul Haig associate Billy Mackenzie). It's interesting that both Josef K and OJ abandoned their debuts, which fortunately labels like Domino are making available again.

The 22 tracks here stem from those treasured Postcard 7"s, the aborted debut, the debut proper `The Only Fun in Town', and concluding with their 1981 Peel Session - so utterly comprehensive then! Josef K's influence turned out to be quite vast for such a culty band, rumoured to have been the least favourite of the acts put out by Alan Horne. They were part of Paul Morley's New Pop formulation, touched on in the sleeve notes from Mr Morley (mine aren't complete and are sadly just an excerpt as I am working from a promo copy).

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. J. Cole on 27 April 2008

This is a quirky little number, a sumptuous compilation of leftfield pop gems that makes one murmur, `So that is where Franz Ferdinand got their ideas from...' Josef K famously committed career suicide by aborting their debut album Sorry For Laughing which stayed unreleased until 1990 but six blistering songs from it are found here along with six more from the `follow-up', The Only Fun In Town and three from a 1981 John Peel session. The highlights of this collection, for me, are the four remarkable Postcard 7" singles, the electrifying Radio Drill Time, the poignant It's Kinda Funny, the insouciant Sorry for Laughing and, my favourite, the jangly, plaintive and enormously uplifting Chance Meeting. The album is beautifully packaged in an eye-catching cardboard cover and the sleeve notes, worth a read depending if you are in the mood, are written by a deliriously over-the-top Paul Morley in the form of his life. I'm slightly cross that this bunch weren't my favourite group at the time but I'm happy to make their acquaintance now. Hurrah.

I was not overly familiar with Josef K before listening to this CD, but as I am exploring the Post Punk of the early 80's I thought I would give it a try. Josef K are an underrated and under represented band of this era, and the CD does them a lot of justice. Josef K are a bit Joy Division, a bit Orange Juice, a bit scratchy, angular pop, but these elements jell in a unique and exciting way. If you are not familiar with Josef K, or have a gap in your CD collection just waiting to be filled, try this. Josef K do not disappoint.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. W. Garratt on 16 July 2007
Format: Audio CD
Sporting the same name as the hapless bank clerk of Kafka's "The Trial", and suddenly being thrust into the limelight twenty-five years after their demise due to an entirely different Franz - Ferdinand that is - Josef K released just one album and a handful of singles in their short life, this collection brings together that material, as well as tracks from their unreleased debut album and the band's notorious Peel Sessions appearance. And what of it? Whilst fitting very neatly into distinctly post-punk brackets of the time, it's thrilling stuff. The aggressively dynamic driving drums, catchy muffled bass hooks, shimmering reverb-laden guitar harmonics and off-hand rasping vocals all recall early Echo and the Bunnymen, or even a melodic Joy Division. But more than that. This isn't just a rushed cash in of vaguely-Franz-related dated inconsequential tosh, it's a well-compiled, lovingly presented snapshot of a short-lived dynamic rock band.
