|THE PILL BOX|
A CATALOG OF CULTURE & BARBARITY
I heard Wigwam on this show on BBc6 Music the other week called the Freak Zone (horrible title), and they sounded really fresh, kind of Canny, almost dubby, lots of spaces (like J Martyn), almost early DAF/Mute even. I know Julian Cope likes them and I seem to remember you reviewing them in the NME circa 1978 (God I'm old)
You can find Ian's Wigwam review from '79 here: http://members.surfeu.fi/mmerilai/wigwam/bibliography/penman_nme210779.htm
Back in the day, did you ever write for the named-after-a-Duul-track UK fanzine "A Short Stop at the transylvanian brain surgery"...?
You can also get some of their songs on i tunes etc. As I said, I'm really old, so I think my nurse might have overdone my afternoon tamazepam 'n' acid dose when I said they sound like early Mute or DAF. On closer inspection they are NOTHING like them! Incidentally, did you know the great Kim Fowley originally tried to set them up as the Finnish Beatles?!Post a Comment
