4.0 out of 5 stars I have to correct the previous reviewer!, 23 Jan. 2005
This review is from: March (Audio CD)
This is certainly a great buy for anyone that enjoys the music of Matching Mole.
The band only made two studio albums (Matching Mole and Little Red Record) both of which I have to say are deeply inspired, original and eclectic musical experiences. The previous reviewer suggests that one or both of these albums are "uninspired", this really could'nt be further from the truth, where the posthumously released live albums are essential listening for fans, they're actually more "prog" orientated as opposed to the very "ambient" nature of the studio albums.
Matching Mole were a very unique band and anybody wondering what Soft Machine would have sounded like in the event of Robert Wyatt not being un-ceremoniously sacked from the band will experience that insight by listening to the music of this band (particularly the first album), "Little Red Record" was produced by Robert Fripp and featured a guest appearance (on Gloria Gloom) by Brian Eno, this album, while displaying an influence from these two luminaries, is the Mole's most consistent work.
Anybody wanting to start a collection of this band's music should, in my opinion, start with Little Red Record, then the first album, follow with the exceptional "Radio 1 sessions" and only then buy the two Cunieform live releases.
Finally, I feel that I should make it clear that I'm a massive fan of the band, bought the original albums when first released and listen to all five CDs on a very regular basis.
