Bought this album a few years ago when I had exams to revise for and needed something to keep me attentive. This album is perfect for that, interesting jazzy electronica that moves from silky and seductive songs like 'venus' to higher bpm numbers that I now listen to when cycling. Still one of my favourite background albums.

Purring� 20 Feb. 2004
By Daly Mavorneen, - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
How to explain this master jazzy sampler? His compositions are not provencial, they take you places far away! For instance, "Venus" is a juant through saturday-afternoon black and white science fiction films; "Carwreck" sounds, well, crunchy-metalic. A message-as-medium undercurrent clinks through "12 Points Off Your Licence" as a musician "plays" two vodka glasses! The last 8-minute perfomance peice, "Going Down" is definately reminiscent of the sounds and feelings of going down the drain, all muffled notes and gurgly ambience.

FP has a lot of nerve (and humor) to throw hip-hop beats, electro, and cat-purr sounds all into one mix! Somehow, despite the diverse ingredients, he brews up an incredibly pure sound while adhering to his fun-first mantra. Acid jazz with the humor that should be inherent in this type of musical pastische: "Datz Jez Musick!" the cover proclaims; inside there's mock adverts for the "Royal Uterus Constablulary" urging "Strangers Say No! To Children." That's the perfect provenance for Xploding Plastix's live-instrumental jazz, still humorous, i.e., "Having Smarter Babies" from 2002's Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents.

In his later works, Le Banquet Cassio, One Day, On, Plod, Fast Asleep, and Ultimately Empty Million Pounds, London Dj James Braddell's jazzy computer collages have the shuffling beats of a Vince Guaraldi Peanuts score Peanuts Portraits: Peanuts 60th Anniversary and the long, long, long playtimes of a recalcitrant Herbaliser!

this should be THE standard for electronicjazzsoundscapes 18 Mar. 1999
By GianToed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this cd has inspired me. i bought a four track, a sh** load of used records, and (almost) a $ampler, so i could achieve something similar to funki porcini. the result...?
pathetic.
but this cd IS what to aspire to when thinking about the possibilities of the fusion of new technology with some mundane sounds (both musical, human, environmental, and those just made up by funki).
this is by far the best that fp has dished out. "Let's See what Carmen Can Do" is a distant second, though still interesting. It's a little too conformist to the rest of the genre. As the title of "Carmen" suggests, it seems as though Funki Porcini is less centered on an individual artist, and more like Soul II Soul in that it's inconsistent enough in style to suggest the possibility of various artists that come in and go out under the guise of "Funki Porcini"... but that's just my theory. "Love, Pussycats & Carwrecks" is rich in texture and feels like the subconscious music of God. It leads you on a journey through moods and emotions and frames of mind; something to be listened to in its entirety as the context of the work as a whole affects one's perception of the individual pieces and, likewise, the possibility of transcending the reality you're in right now. You'll never hear anything quite like it. It is reminiscent of Miles Davis' classic "Kind of Blue" album in its quietness, subtleties, and its capacity for being a classic/standard.
BUY IT. SUPPORT GREAT AND UNUSUAL MUSIC!
ps. the only thing that may top this album, if not "an empty million pound" or whathaveyou, is if funki porcini combined talents w/ Paul D. Miller: DJ Spooky. That would be the best of both worlds!! a true dialectic of emotion and the cerebral!! GREAT ART!! well, one can only hope.

Funki Porcini - Love, Pussycats & Carwrecks 12 May 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Funki Porcini's second album, Love Pussycats & Carwrecks, starts off with the feline and sensuous "Purrfect," an auspicious start if ever there was one. "Groover," however, starts in with the off-kilter jazz, with some sweeps that sound almost like a dying vacuum cleaner. Indeed, Funki seems to move away from the smoothness of his previous album and more keen on introducing elements of noise. "Last Song" has plenty, as does "12 Points Off Your Licence," with its modulated horn stabs and compressed squelches of sound. He seems to be exploring the idea of sound: "Carwreck" has a skittering energy, while "Elephantitus" wanders from one idea to the next. "Venus" hearkens back to the earlier album, though it does embrace some of the chaotic zeitgeist. "I'm Such a Small Thing" takes the ambient tack, and "Going Down" takes out the album in that mellow, sleepy vein. While not as immediate as Hed Phone Sex, this album certainly offers its own pleasures.

Funkindeed! 14 July 2005
By Steven B. Nichols - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is not boring, just-sits-there, does nothing, predictable music... This is unexpected, moving, busy but calm, very fun music. Call it trip hop if you must. I'll just call it good. He (Funki Porcini is DJ James Braddell) does things with this music. It's active. Even the slower numbers like "Going Down" make you work, but it's not i-hate-this-job-work, rather this-is-interesting-let's-see-where-it-goes-next-work. If you want to call it work and I don't so I'm not sure why I did. So many DJ's and bands just sit there doing nothing. Some uncatchy beat over some droney tones. Boring. Buy this CD if you want to actually hear the musician musicianing. Namaste.
