K-X-P - 'II'

While we’re all for experimenting, this obviously has no place at any party

K-X-P - 'II'

5 / 10 Some of this Finnish band’s second album is the best kind of storming krautdisco. It makes you feel cool, like you’ve discovered an underground club where everyone believes it’s the 1970s and there’s an afterparty at Throbbing Gristle’s warehouse. The beat pulses seductively on ‘Staring At The Moon’. ‘Flags & Crosses’ sounds like a nasty Bee Gees. But then it all goes a bit wrong. ‘Melody’ packs its pompous intro with (eeeewww) horns, while ‘In The Valley’ adds silly pagan chanting. The first bit of ‘Dark Satellite’ bears the influence of DJ friends Optimo with a killer spacey womp but the second part features WOODWIND. And while we’re all for experimenting, this obviously has no place at any party. Ever.
