Format: Audio CD
Back in the glory days of sixth form (and a regularly abused common room) there were a certain group of girls who would always criticise a predictable range of rock music for being "depressing." Perhaps the music the `grungers' listened to at the time - Radiohead, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins et al. - was gloomy, but what those girls didn't consider was that making music which evoked gloom might very well have been the primary goal of all the bands they sneered at, so that to label them "depressing" was to in fact congratulate them on an artistic vision well realised.

I'm sure Bohren & Der Club of Gore are no strangers to this kind of short-sighted criticism that fails to take them on their own terms. Their music, spanning a 17-year career and five previous LPs, is not exactly the kind of thing you'd hear playing in shopping centres and department stores around Christmas time as part of the network of Pavlovian stimulants intended to encourage nothing so much as an increase in consumption. Often misleadingly described as dark, or noir, jazz, it's a music that probably takes more inspiration from doom metal and sludge than it does Miles Davis or Ornette Coleman, with heavy, brooding bass, splintering drums, and chords (played on a Fender Rhodes and other electric and electronic keyboard instruments) that sustain for a mini-eternity. What Bohren do with this music is create an atmosphere that is at once desolate and menacing, and in their latest album - the appropriately titled `Dolores' (read dolorous) - they have become increasingly proficient in marrying this atmosphere to melody and movement.

Although it should be made clear that this is not melody and movement in any traditional sense.

My first foray into the Club of Gore and what and adventure it was. Impossibly dense and ridiculously slow, this funereal sound of apocalyptic jazz and rock dynamics should be required listening if the world does eventually implode.
