Product Description

BBC Review

Rambling Fall frontman Mark E Smith is perhaps not the first person that springs to mind when you think about shaking your stuff on a Saturday night.

Then again, neither are Düsseldorf experimentalists Mouse On Mars (a.k.a. Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma) - which is what makes this collaborative project so fascinating.

For the first single from Tromatic Reflexxions, the trio's collective debut album, is 'Feldermaus Can't Get It,' a song that references Johann Strauss and The Tick while successfully melding stuttering basslines, sinewy electro and Smith's sprawling verbal outpourings.

The single suggests that MOM's ever-mercurial vision may be closer here to the skewed pop of their Radical Connector LP than their more recent (and more bombastic) Varcharz.

Certainly Tromatic's second track, 'The Rhinohead,' bears the same accessible production tropes, with its plodding beat, textured, shifting pop-rock structure and - gasp! - melodic chorus from Smith.

But neither MOM nor Smith were ever going to be satisfied with a play-it-safe album, and after the visceral club-punch of 'Flooded' (a retelling of one of St. Werner's dreams where a rival DJ - Sven Vath, specifically - stole his slot and he was compelled to flood the club in revenge), Tromatic moves swiftly into more adventurous territory.

Abrasive synth stabs and tortured machine squeals decorate the plodding groove of 'Family Feud,' while 'Serious Brainskin', features heavy rave-horn blasts; 'The Young, The Faceless & The Codes,' meanwhile, could well be the acid track the Happy Mondays never made.

The thud-thud-thud of 'Speech Contamination/German Fear Of Osterreich' and the affable 'That Sound Wiped' bring the party back momentarily: but the trio soon amble off again down their own strange paths.

'Chicken Yiamas,' sees Smith finally let rip over a shuffling chicken-shack blues; 'Jbak Lois Lane' is a recording of Mark either trimming his hedge or mowing his lawn - or both - while dropping casual conversation ('I know bigger f*!kin' fellas than you') with passers by. 'Dearest Friends,' is another total anomaly, matching Hawaiian guitar to a tale of departed friends.

Don't expect to hear any of these on commercial radio anytime soon.

A few strong tracks, several fillers and a slew of eccentric surprises do not a great album make. But while club fiends might prefer the steady pulse of the singles, fans of Smith and/or MOM will probably get a decent kick out of the rest. --Paul Sullivan

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Find! 3 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Until a week ago I didn't even know this existed, being a big Fall fan I can't believe this one got past me. This is terrific, Mark E Smith is on top form (and he sounds like he's having a lot of fun) and so are Mouse on Mars, I've heard some of their earlier albums and liked them but I've not listened to anything by them for about five years. This is as consistent as anything I've heard them do and as good as any electronica you'll find, taking in dance genres and spitting them out with their own unique messed up vision, there's some seriously funky stuff here. Dance music is all about repetition after all, and it just drives Mark E Smith forward beautifully, an inspired collaboration.

I find it hard to believe any Fall fan wouldn't like this, maybe if they hate anything electronic then possibly. Even so, if your one of those people, give this a go and you might change your mind. As good as a great Fall album (of which there are many) and terrific electronic beats. More please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decongestant 4 Nov 2008
By Neil
Format:Audio CD
Decongest your ears with Von Sudenfed. Mark E Smith rants over the German garden hedge - he is the DJ as humour abounds and battles with realism. The surreal music of contemporary Europe and the history of its past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year? 7 Aug 2007
By Betsy
Format:Audio CD
I've been a mouse on mars listener for 10 years now, and it's always a surprise for me listening to a new record by them, but this is really something. I'm so happy of having this album, i am a more happy person since this came out, it's organized chaos, the ghost in the machine, eclectic calculated sounds vs rants and fun fun fun, believe ive listened ALL of the good 07 albums, lcd soundsystem, year zero, amon tobin, battles,arcade fire etc...and this is the best so far...
