To Rococo Rot

ABC123

Of all the crazy conceptual albums made, To Rococo Rot’s ‘abc123’ must be one of the oddest. It’s an homage to the Helvetica typeface (as used by Marks & Spencer and Microsoft!) on its 50th ‘anniversary’, all delivered through the power of minimal, analogue electronica. The German trio try manfully to make it exciting. It isn’t.
