Those who have always disliked the word genre-conventions are kindly asked to read on! Because whatever has been written about the rules of rock’n’roll or typical patterns in electronic music – it’s reduced to absurdity on this record. It’s the EP’s great secret that you won’t find disdainful electro-clash, but instead an advanced and almost artistic approach by producer Powell from London. The first beat of the first track »Fizz« is based on a shaking rockabilly-rhythm, which superficially doesn’t seem to offer any kind of variation. However, in the background, you’ll hear obscure sound-snippets, vocal samples or just dangling guitar-chords. »Wharton Tiers on Drums« (Wharton Tiers is regarded as one of the most distinguished drummers and producers in the circus of rock) leads the chain of associations towards artistic guitar music. Theoretical Girls, No Wave, Thurston Moore plays Free Jazz, etc… The track begins with electronic noise being abruptly interrupted by vocal-snippets, becoming rhythmic and walking their way all over the track. The distorted New-Wave-guitar is used for embellishment once more. »Beats« completes the b-side and picks up the rhythm and overall sound of the previous track, only that it goes backwards, and thereby thwarts the usual conventions known from electronic music. This music does for Techno what »No Wave« did for rock music – I’ll just call it »No Rave« for now.
