play.com has 4 of their albums for £5 so i just wanted to know what they sound like and which album is best
their most consistent effort for my money. The tracks with Fontella Bass are staggering, and Burn Out is epic.
Motion is also very good (it's worth buying for Channel One Suite alone) and the new one, Ma Fleur, is decent as well. I suppose what I'm saying is buy the lot. Except the remix album and Man With the Movie Camera, which you can probably do without.
I've seen them live a couple of times over the last few months and they've been very good, too.
electric cinema i hope...i get confused :(
but the best way I can describe it is as hip-hop influenced jazz with electronic splashes. Loads of big soprano sax solos, grand strings, sumptuous double bass, ridiculous drumming.
Roots Manuva also appears on Every Day, by the by.
