Luke Vibert aka Wagon Christ is back (once again). Behold. The only man to have recorded full length albums for Rephlex, Warp, Mo’ Wax and the mighty Ninja, the Cornwall School’s answer to Marcel Duchamp (only kitscher), the man who put the sticky wet patches into ambient, the magic tricks into drill ‘n’ bass, the rip into, erm, instrumental hip hop, the only living musician trying to keep Vicks’ market share up.

What can we possibly tell you? That "Saddic Gladdic" comes on like the Jackson 5 being beaten to death by Speedy Gonzales at Butlins? That "Shadows" uses an organ sound so utterly mournful and yet also utterly ludicrous you want to weep and laugh while making your testes dance up and down? That "UBFormby" sounds like Scratch Perry dubbing up the entire city of Blackpool? That "Nighty Night" features a Motown bassline and someone playing a tune on a violin made from a live cat? That we really have absolutely no idea what we’re talking about?

"I’m Sorry I Make You Lush" displays all the trademark Wagon Christ tricks - woozy, gaudy, beautiful kitschtronica, the tightest, tidiest funk drummage and anus-wobbling sub bass. But there is, of course, a little more than that. Mr Vibert does it again – before you know it you’re gulping down endless handfuls of sugar-coated avant garde pills and not even noticing the levels of cleverness, the sheer range of inventiveness, the subtlety of this West Country music machine.

The child who is heard glumly complaining that he wants to put on some music in the opening of Sorry I Make You Lush will have trouble getting through Wagon Christ's album, as will anyone else who is expecting the niceties of conventional choruses or melodies. But when one realises that Wagon Christ is yet another alias for the guru-like Luke Vibert, you know not to expect these things. Even coming from Ninja Tune, a label famed for its electronic eclecticism, this one still sticks out as being left-field. All the usual Vibert staples are here: fresh beats, a mix of squelchy analogue and digital sounds, speech samples. But rather than Mr Scruff-style light-hearted funky dance, the impetus here is on creating a firm groove. The songs range from some credible hip hop-style funk on "Kwikwidetrax" (complete with totally incongruous children's voices), to spacey atmospherics on the opening "Saddic Gladdic". The best is saved until last with what can only be described as a cross between updated Motown and Cornelius. The basslines are supple, the production is suitably spacey and atmospheric, and though some cuts may drag on slightly too long ("Sci-Fi Staircase" being the worst offender), they are all refreshingly funky and danceable. --Thom Allot

I've been a fan of Wagon Christ aka Luke Vibert aka Plug etc etc. since I heard his genius "Drum and Bass for Papa" LP. This LP stands up to that one, and his other true classic "Big Soup". All the Vibert trademarks are there...genuinely funny samples, expertly sequenced loops and (as a result) hooks to die for.
Unlike his contemporaries like u-ziq and Aphex Twin, Luke hasn't got bogged down in trying to make really complicated 2,000bpm polyrhythmic beats that you can't dance to..he just lets the beats roll and concentrates on building fantastic melodies, and making coherent tracks that are just a joy to listen to.
In dance music terms he's a veteran now, and really deserves more recognition outside the whole "Dance" cul-de-sac. This is the kind of music you don't need to be a rabid clubber, nor a dieheard Vinyl junkie to enjoy...its just darn good electronic music written by one of the great unsung heroes of his generation.

Wagon Christ is an interesting musician, recording under many monikers for many labels. For Ninja Tune he writes what could be classed as cheesy music but beyond your initial reaction are a whole host of hugely inventive ideas.
Sometimes the album will depart into Aphex influenced lunar acid as on 'Sci Fi Stair Case' or 'Sorry I Make You Lush' .'Im Singing' has Luke singing on it I think for the first time, 'Shadows' has a beautiful female vocal on top of lush strings. Other elements in this album include funk and hip hop. A very eclectic album by anyones standards. But ultimately Luke Vibert has created a sound all his own... kitschtronica!!
For me this is his best album since Throbbing Pouch the man is an absurd genius....

I'm left with the feeling that I've heard it all before, 80's synths, chopped up layered samples, it reminds me of early Paul Hardcastle in places. The collages of sounds he creates do amble along in a kind of uniform but nonetheless interesting way, but on the whole its hardly unique or inspiring. The album highlights would have to be Shadows and tracks 9 and 10. Ninja Tune fans will rave about this....but in an attempt to be more objective I'd say its nice background music, but its not great and certainly nothing to get exicted about. The BBC will probably use it for Gardening programmes....

I was very excited about this album, but it has been very disappointing.. I know that you can't expect artists to produce the same style on every album - they need to explore and progress, however, while this album is technically brilliant, it lacks those powerful tracks, such as Fly Swat, Memory Towel, Step to the Music, Musipal, Bend over and All of it is now. Of course that is my taste but without these types of tracks the album sounds very bland and repetitive, it just lacks that wacky creative edge.. Have tried listening quite a few times and the songs just don't catch...

a.k.a. "Sorry I Make Chemical Brothers Look Crap" 24 Oct. 2005
By uncut76 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has to be Wagon Christ's best album yet. It's rare to find an album that manages to incorperate a sense of humour and 'wackiness' without sacrificing any integrity. For all the weirdness and funny noises, this album seems to mainly be all about the grooves. "Shadows" is a gorgeous track, unlike anything I've really heard before. "Wide Trax" is a shimmering, sloping monster of a track. In fact listening to Sorry I Make You Lush is a bit like walking into an Aladdins cave of breakbeats and found sounds... every track has something to offer the listener. Definitely recommended for anyone who can't be bothered with Basement Jaxx/Chemical Bros. style play-it-safe dance music, but who still wants to dance.

FEELIN' KINDA LUSH!!! 27 July 2004
By D. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sorry I Make You Lush! is a continuation of where Wagon Christ's phenomenal Musipal left off, with elements of his equally impressive releases, Tally Ho and YosepH. Wagon Christ a/k/a Luke Vibert has produced yet another masterpiece that utilizes hiphop/funk sounds, acid jazz embellishments, funky basslines and familiar samples! This one isn't as hype, or groundbreaking as the aformentioned classics by W.C.--and it's much shorter in duration as well--but that doesn't take away from the quality of the music. Wagon Christ has once again demonstrated that he can create a damn good party CD! Highly Recommended!

let's have some fun... 15 Dec. 2004
By a_hermit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wagon Christ, well, we all know and love him, even though he would damn us all to hell without a care. He returns with this foray, an experimentation in electronic music that is just dying to wake our inner child ...all highly emotional and I think that the secret to his success is that he doesnt limit his creativity in the studio, he will just go off on to whatever tangent strikes him. This album to me seems like a dare to go where no man has ever gone. I love listening to it, although a couple tracks seem a little distasteful... "The funnies" is a sample nightmare... Ubformby is just too alien, and repulsive...

The rest of the album is why I wrote this...

it is really fine, fusion jazz, space age, club music for druggies. It's vibrant, melodic, striking, daring, creepy, sick, and downright lush...

The first track, Saddic Gladdic, it begins with a child begging to hear music.

What is he trying to say through this? And the intro? He's happy about something, and this music is just bouncy and lovely, I think hes trying to tease us because he thinks he knows what we want out of our music... well, he knows what "I" want.

The 4th track "Shadows" reminds me that there are hidden aspects to everything we perceive in life, and that there is a dark and light side to everything.

Well, its a great album, its a sonic journey of discovery, much like you would usually aspect from Luke Vibert.

So, maybe I'm lushing too much, but this is how I feel about this album. Alot of critics on this site condemn this style of music and call it fruity and leftfield, inaccessible, crackpot, whatever. Everyone should have a taste of this.
So Lush its sticky 14 Jan. 2008
By Alexander R. Neild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow, this is one cool album. I've heard all of Viberts contemporaries, like Richard D. James(AFX, Aphex Twin) and Squarepusher to name the two most popular. But this man is so very different. He doesn't try to hide the fact that he likes down tempo beats and funk, he embraces it. So here we have a guy whos friends with arguably the weirdest people in the music industry, but instead of being all out weird(like Aphex's "Milkman" or Squarepushers "Red hot car") he does it thru his sampling. He chooses the weirdest synths and voices ive ever heard but manages to make them flow great and be really relaxing and at the same time make u say "this is weird, but i can realate to this".

This is a great short album, I suggest buying it. Im not one of those people who like to bash the modern commerical electronic artists like daft punk and chemical brothers. They have their place in my collection. But if you wanna hear something very different and not the norm. THEN GET THIS!!!!!!!!! plus it makes me want to dance in a weird way.
Beyond excellence as a whole! For first-timers and fans alike, S.I.M.Y.L. is a win-win for everyone even at 10 tracks 10 Mar. 2013
By Visual Bureau - Published on Amazon.com

"Sorry I Make You Lush is a more ethereal, Tally Ho! comeback album from Wagon Christ or Luke Vibert. Thankfully, this status still stands on its own ground with excellence as the album contains some of his most dynamic, rhythmically enlightening, and beautiful pieces put together. Even if the vibe maybe given seems animated because of the album artwork and promotion, this element about it does not deter the celebratory nature for what it is. With songs like the joyous and funky Saddic Gladdic, hazy I'm Singing, the hauntingly excellent Shadows, and the intense Ubformby, you can expect yourself a vibrant and enriching musical experience beyond the parallels found in today's electronic scene that the thoughts, Art of Noise, Pop Will Eat Itself, and Llwybr Llaethog (from Wales) will come into mind. A few albums do stand out under the 5-star status and this is one with pure meaning. Do not miss this one, or even Musipal, in your collection."
