7 / 10 When they put their suits on, they say, Paul Martin and Tyrrell become Interfearence. Yet while such sartorial self-discipline may be at odds with the loose-limbed, beat-heavy psychedelia they construct as Interfearence, it at least helps them differentiate from their industry day jobs. Paul, you see, is an A&R for Talkin' Loud, Tyrrell's a producer.

To that end, it's easy to view this project with scepticism: it could be so contrived, so - how do you say? - Gay Dad. But it's not, because like all dance acts worth their weight in bpms, Interfearence have nothing to say (save from wanting to take us to a magical place during the chunky house of 'Wonderland') and cater instead for the base instincts of the dancefloor.

It's a test of one's stamina, certainly. Over 70 strength-sapping minutes, Interfearence successfully infuse various rhythms - from tribal rumblings to mutant techno - with bristling Neu! guitar and rubber funk ('Religious Revolution') or, on 'Never Changes (Part Three)', meandering dub and hippy rhetoric. There are plenty of ideas on display here - more than enough to warrant the pair's extracurricular activity and silence the cynics - though a little editing wouldn't go amiss.
