Johnny Domino, Rabbit themes (Artists Against Success) CD
The first full album from AAS might well be the one that violates
their eponymous manifesto. Johnny Domino peddle a cheerily ironic pop
formula: Joy Division meets Mario Bros electro, embracing cheese
melodies and the ghost of Half Man Half Biscuit on the way. "Sonja"
buzzes with thick electronic organ tones and a relentless beatbox
propels the monotone vox; "Vengo!" adds a ouch of Cable rumble and
some subdued Elastica punctuation; "Are you prog?" is a bendy indie
number elevated by the incorporation of some classic Bullseye lines
and in "The Udigawa Contract" they contrarily "choose not to choose"
over a slicing, squealing riff and the odd sci-fi effect. A really
nice way to kick the new year off.
