El Baile Aleman / My Life With Jesus

It's hard to know which of these records is more blasphemous.

It’s hard to know which of these records is more blasphemous. OK, Geez’N’Gosh have mechanical Christ artwork, brutal replicant gospel and mashed-up monks. But Seqor Coconut (there is, you suspect, no ‘Conjunto’) brainwashes Kraftwerk’s finest songs into wearing the ruffled shirt and fruit-filled headdress of Latin American cabaret fun. Needless to say, Uwe Schmidt, man of pseudonyms behind both recordings, must fear for his mortal soul.

‘El Baile Aleman’ (‘The German Dance’) is, however, more perplexing, something that people who are post-everything – including rational thought – might find pleasant accompaniment to a couple of motor-oil martinis.
