Far from the stroboscopic effervescence of the golden eigthies,
the British Alig (alias John Pearce), former instigator of
a funny pop music mixed növö-dub combo called Family
Fodder, comes back as Johnny Kash with a new muse : the superb
Norwegian singer Anne-Marte Rygh for a completly timeless
recording, more stamped with mythological images than with
Oedipus enrolls its silk carpet for us, which is tranformed
into a flying carpet for a weightlnessness journey across
an oriental garden. Real zen and almost ritual music, this
self- spell ceremony manages to make a blank in our minds.
This kind of shamanic trip hop has the mystery and wisdom
of an antique oracle.
The percussions from North Africa and Persia meet the accordion
and european folk music : polka, tango, fado, even country
western music. Anne-Marthe / Alig duet's minimal trance starts
from the inmost and connects to the world beat in order to
rediscover the sensuousness and flightiness of the first loves.
Oedipus has also contributed to the No More...
No Mouroir compilation (IPS 1301).
