5.0 out of 5 stars So good!, 10 Oct 2003

Simon J. Whight "fourfourfun" (Manchester) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Power Clown (Audio CD)
Of Fila Brazillia's actual artist albums (leaving the astounding Brazilification and Another Late Night compilations aside), this and Maim That Tune are my favourites. Further along in the timeline than Maim That Tune, it offers up a more polished sound and varied. All bases are covered, the 'Whooo hoo! The album's started!' firing latin funk of the opener Bovine Funk, the almost swinging 60's of Here Comes Pissy Will which halfway through morphs into a dramatic orchestra electro track (nice tangent there!). Throwing Down A Shape is just one of the best chilling tracks ever, starting off with a booming standard electro break before softening into a beautiful stumming guitar led track. President Chimp Toe is also another class track, almost Bond like strings lead into another chilled guitar led track, just plain gorgeous for chilling. Tunstall And Californian Haddock has a wonderful continental latin vibe to it before it leads onto the wicked Feathery Legs. I'd kill for a copy of this track on vinyl. It kicks off as a funky breaks number before halfway through introducing nice house beats, a lovely synth line and little crowd whoops of delight. A killer track! Latin, funk, house, 60's, psychedlic experimentation, jazz, Fila have got it all going on.
Overall a wicked package, so many varied sounds on here, Fila at their best in my book! Talking of books, with the CD, each track has a 2 page comic strip dedicated to each song ... just so you can find out the story of Pissy Willy, or in Firelanes, why its not a good idea to cane Death and the Devil at cards. I find it hard to pick a best between this and Maim That Tune, they both shine in different ways. Best idea is to pick up both albums! More than just your ordinary chill out album, full of personality and originality.

5.0 out of 5 stars power clown, 5 Dec 2011
This review is from: Power Clown (Audio CD)
A superb album by the duo from Hull. The cd starts with the excellent 'bovine funk' and glides through various genres with simplistic ease. The highlight of the record being 'throwing down a shape' which fuses industrial sounding beats with melodic piano loops.

4.0 out of 5 stars Off beat electronic music, 30 Mar 2006
By 
This review is from: Power Clown (Audio CD)
I heard many Fila Brazilia remixes before I went and got a album. The first one was Power Clown and I was surprised how consistent and beautiful it is.
I love music you can put on and just let it ride, without having to skip bad or "weaker" tracks. And this is one of those albuns were I can do it.
It includes some very funky tracks, some mellow electronic tracks and even some humor mixed in. The final result is you want to listen to it again.
I would recomend it to everyone who likes electronic music, but also loves alternative pop/rock, because this is not pure electronica.

5.0 out of 5 stars THEY ARE THE MUTS NUTS, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Power Clown (Audio CD)
You cannot beat Fila B. This is another one of their best albums. Jazzed up with eccentric sounds and melodies they truly rock the show. If you appreciate these guys and underground beats then you need this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars More genious from Hull's finest!, 30 Jan 2002
This review is from: Power Clown (Audio CD)
Another tremendous album from Fila Brazillia!
This album is a cheeky little number - favourite tracks have to be President Chimp Toe (Beautiful genious) and Speewah (Get the funk out!)
Once you have discoved FB you will have to buy the entire collection - if you haven't got this one yet GO BUY IT, definately one of their best!
...the accompanying comic strip illustrations for each track are wicked!
