To Rococo Rot


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.
