Product Description


Despite being a pair of stoners from Hull, Baby Mammoth are scarily prolific. Since 1994, this unassuming down-tempo duo have released an astonishing seven albums. Motion Without Pain--their seventh long player for hometown label Pork--is probably their best so far. It takes up where 1999's Swimming left off, mixing glistening guitar licks with chunky down-tempo beats, swirly ambient synths and humorous vocal samples. This time, Mammoth main men Blissendell and Burdall have opted to add zippier beats and chunkier breaks, resulting in a far more focused album than previous releases. In fact, it's the more up-tempo tracks here that work best. "Tasty Maloney" pitches a particularly funked-up, chunky breakbeat against shimmering synths and a haunting trumpet solo, while "Pacific Glitter" mixes sunny Mediterranean guitar riffs with stripped-down beats. Mammoth even find time to go all drum and bass, on the outstanding title track (think LTJ Bukem with hammond organ solos and blissful guitar solos). Like their good friends Fila Brazilia, Baby Mammoth seem to be getting better with age. --Matt Anniss

A jewel in the Electronica crown. Although the cheeky, perhaps even scatalogical (Motion Without Pain?), track titles are present in true Pork style (see stablemates Fila Brazillia for more of the same) this is a classy piece of work from the boys. Sparsely effective samples and jazz-funk guitar licks underpin and overlay shimmering but never overdone layers of synth and beats. Coolly jazz-led overall, the mood shifts into a more kick back and chill out groove with the marvellous Ebb and Flow. I nearly dropped a rating star due to the very slightly abrasive Pigs in Space, but the sheer frequency of spins this album gets in the player despite a burgeoning number of worthy contenders in this genre bags it top marks.

I CALL IF DAFT UNDERGROUND FUNK. These guys are just awesome like their buddies Fila Brazillia. You won't find yourself being upset by buying this. It is a naughty little funk classic. Only the Bristish really know how to pull out all the stops when it comes to eccentric funky breaks. Grab a copy you might just like it?

One of the best Pork cuts. 19 Jun. 2000
By Alexandre P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Baby Mammoth remains one of the yet undiscovered wonders of the acclaimed Pork Records (together with Fila Brazillia and Bullitnuts). Classified as lounge music, electronica or electrofunk, theses bands have long ago discarded any of these sordid labels, creating something fresh and undescribable upon each release. Active for many years and records, Baby Mammoth's latest release is "Motion Without Pain", and it shows they have done their homework. Opening with the Moby-esque "Elephunk", the album is a complete delight, combining different styles that match perfectly, like the funeral like trumpet and the up beats in "Tasty Maloney", or the overused sample from "Aquarela do Brasil" in the wonderful "The Ghost of Henry". "Ebb & Flow" begins with a menacing speech about the human nature, only to dissolve into a charming bass-based tune. Enjoy without pain.

Speechless 20 July 2001
By Justin M. Klotz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Is this funk? Is it techno? Is it downbeat? No. This is a different, more interesting beast. I would called it funky existentialism. The music is amazing and captivating, but never makes you get out of your seat. Perfect. Ebb and Flow has a long sample from the movie "Network" that basically sums up the whole album. If you've ever seen the movie, it helps define this music even more. Basically, this is funk for the human collective, the one world/one business culture. But instead of fearing and fighting it, Baby Mammoth says, "Ok, here's how it is...let's get down."

First and foremost, if this is the first time you've checked out Baby Mammoth, you need to immediately add every CD by them, fila brazillia and Bullitnuts to your list.

Baby Mammoth have a multitude of timeless, indisputably amazing Cds that border on trip hop, funk, etc.

This cd is certainly a little more repetitive than other Mammoth releases, but still has that signature chilled out excellence. One thing I absolutely love about Baby Mammoth is that they don't spare the live instrumentation. Most of their music is frought with beautiful guitar licks, saxaphone solos and flutes, etc.

All the while, they craft beautifully executed electronic beats and rhythms in a way that only they can do.

Check it out, order their entire collection, because as these cds become unavailable, an entire segment of music will be going with it, because they make some unique sonic excellence.

I only gave it 4 because there are better Mammoth Albums.
Baby Mammoth - Motion Without Pain 22 Feb. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Motion Without Pain brings out the funk in Baby Mammoth. On the first half of the album, their tempos are slightly more upbeat, and they seem to be encouraging the listener to shake things up a bit. "Tasty Maloney" is bright and bouncy, buoyed by a horn sample, while "The Ghost of Henry," takes an old music sample that sounds like it came from the heyday of Coney Island and loops it over some loping beats. The second half slows things down for the most part, but throws in some breaks here and there (like on "Pigs in Space") for variation. More tasty Pork chops for your tongue!
