Josso

Mike & Rich - Expert Knob Twiddlers

Recommended Posts

I love the whole cover art as well... poorly masked Richard with white border is hilarious. I agree totally with Josso about the warm and alive feeling. Some of µ's single stuff doesn't have it for me.

 

 

That just made me laugh:

one thing I find interesting is that Vodka seems to use every drum sample used on Melodies from mars...

Best album of all time. If Voyager had happened a bit later, this would have been on the golden disk.

vodka is such a perfectly named track, that track just feels drunk... makes you wanna stumble around stupidly even if you're sober

I own this album but am embarrassed to say I haven't listened to it that much.

Do I need to redress that?

It would be pretty sweet if they re-did the cover to model after 'New Downfall'. Call it Michael & Richard

Listening to this for the first time in years. Soooo good. Criminally underrated. Are there any u-ziq albums that have a similar vibe? I'm not familiar with any of mike's catalog, embarrassed to say.

Ban yourself.

 

Wtf Lane.

 

(p sure EKT is 80% Mike P. Honestly just discogs search Paradinas and get every release under his various monikers).
