Echoboy : Frances says the knife is alive
that [a]Echoboy[/a] - aka former [B]Hybird Richard Warren[/B] - does Kraut boogie at its most alluring and 'mystical'
So committed to the Krautrock campaign are the men and women of Mute
that a recent memo circulated in their north London bunker instructed employees to grow their hair and, where possible, beards an incredible two-feet in length and to nurture that just-slept-in-a-bed-of-orange-peel-and-sawdust look that was all the rage in Dusseldorf in 1974. Unwisely, both Echoboy
and the Appliance
team have short hair, but it can grow. The good news is that Echoboy
- aka former Hybird Richard Warren
- does Kraut boogie at its most alluring and 'mystical', although this Mute
debut isn't quite as marvellous as his earlier, hard-to-find offerings. Typical.
