Speaking of Hot Chip, what’s up with Joe Goddard? Did he have a therapy-induced breakthrough whereby he realised he just wanted to make piano-driven life-affirming house with his buddy and everything else was a massive lie? This sounds like it was conceived after a Paradise Garage epiphany in 1987, cocaine falling like snow and... hey, there’s Frankie Knuckles: “HIYA FRANKIE!! Yeah, we should totally work together.” Whatever, I’m grateful.
