Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Though the programming complexity of Tom Jenkinson's debut Feed Me Weird Things looked to drum and bass for its inspiration, his softening of the genre's base elements with gentle analogue keys and restless bass guitar proved irresistible to listeners of all percussive persuasions upon its original release in the summer of 1996. But this is a story of weird things, not one of beat pedantics and low-end theory, and Feed Me... is indeed as odd as they come, ranging from the warmth of the guitar intro which introduces "Squarepusher's Theme" right through to the rattling rhythm section which accompanies the emotional Aphex noodling of "Theme from Ernest Borgnine". Stepping like a bass guitar-equipped Wagon Christ or Boomerang with a sense of jazz purpose, this is an album that far exceeds the sum of its parts and as such reaches the heady heights of seminal status. --Kingsley Marshall

'Feed me Wierd Things' is Tom Jenkinson's first full length offering (his only for Rephlex) and its importance and influence cannot be underestimated. From an obscure upbrining as a Jaco Pastorious inspired Jazz muso, who could have predicted how fundamentally Mr Jenkinson would stir the worlds of dance, Jazz, fusion etc. music. This album is perhaps his most important, and certainly his freshest, most varied and continually inspired. From the memorable opening of 'Squarepusher Theme' with its high octane, impossibly intricate drum programming and Jazz styled live bass we are aware we are listening, quite genuinely, to 'sound like sound never sounded before' (to quote Richard d. James). Almost every track is a new revelation, a new revealing of the possibilies inherent in jazz-dance crossovers, and Tom Jenkinson delivers what he promises. Tracking through this album reveals such variety of mood and substance: the faintly haunting 'Tundra', the jazzy kitsch of 'Smedley's Melody', the industrial tersity of 'Dimotane Co.' or the suburban gloom of 'U.F.O's over Leytonstone' etc. etc. etc... As a personal reccomendation try 'Kodak' which is one of the most perfectly crafted dance tracks I have heard in a long time. This album offers a glimpse into the originality of Tom's mind, but cannot predict the radical departures he would embark on with each new release. Even if many people who really should have heard this album have not, it has developed a strong following and is well on its way to proving a landmark of 90's underground music- check it

Have you ever wondered what it's like to hear the feeling of flying at speed through the most beautiful, wild, deserted landscape ? Buy this for Tundra and lose yourself in the haunting, nostalgic melody - it will stay within you for a very long time. When the ethereal, church-like organ starts up it's as if you stopped the engines and started to fly or free-fall into the Tundra, it's a very romantic moment... As the track fades away you don't want it to end, ever.

.....stop looking and start buying here. This is an incredible album. I know people harp on about Big Loada and all its' glorious blah blah blah... but it's nothing - NOTHING compared to this. I mean - listen to the first track - jazzy broken drum n bass with a fretless bass solo. What? Tom Jenkinson can play bass at incredible speeds - is fluid and fully versed in jazz phrasing. Combine that with some of the most advanced programming around and you have an album that will make you want to buy everything that this bloke's ever written. There will always be the comparisons to Aphex - but, to be honest - Squarepusher is a lot more....'charged'. Erm....I know that might be controversial - I like them both....look - the crux of this waffle is - IF YOU'RE ON THIS PAGE - YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY SQUAREPUSHER - SO START HERE!

I won't repeat other reviews in describing the nature of the music, which I'm no expert in. However I would thoroughly recommend this album as one to get you started on Squarepusher. I bought Hard Normal Daddy and Ultravisor first and found them harder to get into. Feed Me Weird things is more consistently appealing, with interesting fast jazzy beats and melodies. With the exception of a few seconds of noise somewhere on the album, I would even play it in polite company without fear of "that weird experimental track" having them complain. If you're wondering how to get into this genre of music, go for this album!
