Like Brazillian New Wave Jazz... 6 Jan 2005
By squarehawk2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...would be the only thing I can think to call this. All the elements - lush female voice, jazzy instrumentation - give the music both a catchy quiet Funk feel with a New Wave vibe.

Although there is a little punch to some tracks, most of them tend to be atmospheric instead of dance punk material that was associated with their label, Factory Records (Joy Division, New Order, Marine, Section 25, ACR, etc.). Many times the group was considered by others an offshoot project of A Certain Ratio because Simon Topping had a large hand in producing the group's records for a while ("Boy" being co-produced w/ Steve M. of Carabet Voltaire).

But the group really stood on their own despite whoever had a hand in them, and instead of falling for an all out post-punk style so popular at the time, they made original music that was exotic.

After the brief period of the Swamp Children, members continued to record together until the name Kalima for Factory Records.

Pick it up if you're looking for something different from the standard fare that pop music makes. And check out the comp. "Fruit Of The Original Sin" for another killer cut by the band: "Flesh".

Early Kalima & swing out sister fans take note! 15 Jan 2006
By Swing Out Mister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You will love it, it's angular jazz funk and still freshly weird!

Only complaint: WHERE is "FLESH" as the other reviewer pointed out its absence as well.

that song is so freaking amazing with its weird sleazy 70s porn groove and Ann Quigley's tripped out overdubbed moaning and the out of key saxes--somewhere between A Certain Ratio and Throbbing Gristle w/ Astrud Gilberto in bondage thrown in. Fabulous and sublime cut from 1981 no less! (all while the world slept)

It has to be heard to be believed and would've MADE this CD perfect.
