Two kings of the indie dancefloor unite for a warm, timeless take on 20th century pop and rock
Ten Benson : Robot tourist
the world may have failed them, Chris Teckkam and his cohorts are at least staying true to themselves...
No matter though, for while the world may have failed them, Chris Teckkam and his cohorts are at least staying true to themselves. 'Robot Tourist' is another slice of psychotropic pop, where Teckkam wails his strange tale of technological woe over a colossal glam-rock stomp like a man who has not the vaguest concept of defeat. Also included is a "Night Version" of earlier Benson single 'Evil Heat' which, perhaps for the first time, allows you to have a more detailed idea of what they're on about, and a truly deranged fuzz guitar assault on 'I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside' which is frankly upsetting.
Terminally uncommercial perhaps, but a work of something approaching visionary genius.
