I absolutely love all their other CD's, but this one is bad.
Format: Audio CD. Since the beginning of the electronic music era in the early 70's many musicians and composers began searching out ways in which to combine it into other established mediums instrumentally. It wasn't until later in the 70's and more over the early 80's that anyone really ever thought of bringing other styles INTO the electronic genre. A whole subgenre of new wave called synth pop was born out of this concept and a good deal of it was actually pretty poppy stuff designed for radio airply.
In Switzerland in ,born out of this whole crossroads of musics came Dieter Meier and Boris Black with Yello,a group who would go on to have one major hit that would put them on the map but at this point were very much an obscure group little known outside of European countries.
That being said no one could ever accuse them of not being musically eclectic but the significance came with how the went about it. Predating Art Of Noise's blend of a few live instruments with synthesizers and tape loops. One of the things that destinguises Yello is that they seem to be more obviously influenced by early hip-hop.
They use funk groove oriented rhythmic patterns on a lot of their music and many of the lyrics are spoken or "rapped" as opposed to sung. Sometimes the music is plain innovative and other times it's sly parodies on the culture such as "Coast To Polka",a tongue-in-cheek reminder that polka beats were as important to disco based dance music as funk was and often not as often discussed in the broader relm of Eurodisco.
The opening "Bimbo" and "Night Flanger" are snazzy jams,based to some degree in the same mixtures of funk and lite reggae influences that charactarized early hip-hop,the latter with a strong bassy shuffle and that video game electronic style. That reggae flavor pops up more obviously on "Rock Stop and extends to the Caribbean funk flavors of the closer "Bananahs To The Beat",with it's jumping multiple synth bass lines and multi tracked and somewhat askew bass vocal harmonies. There's also "Bostich",a strong electro funk proto dance number with a garagey flavor that was at this time unique for electronica.
While other tunes such as "Megneto" and "Blue Green" have more of a cinamatic and textural atmosphere more typical of European electronica this album with it's bumping and unique uses of rhythms and electronic accents was an important progression at this time. Caught somewhere between British acts that were far better known and had more credibility such as Ian Dury and Soft Cell,Yello added a quirky and left of center wit to their lyrical AND musical humor and this ended up being the beginning of something really new and ear catching-as it was for me.
This album was, I think, first released by the residential Ralph label in correct me if I am wrong, but at least they DID release it! At first listening me as a Residents fan was pretty much disappointed and began to have suspicions that Ralph was turning "disco" or "commercial" which would have been anathema. Even though the flip side of the first 7" was no problem the rest seemed a little too "trendy" to suit the Ralph league.
After repeated listenings however i discovered the innovativeness and the daring avantgardish mixes and ideas, even though the beat in some instances still disturbed me. After the many years that have gone by the ideas are not new anymore, neither is the way of creating music as Yello did new. These recordings today are but historical archives of a synthesizing pop culture that has turned over into digital sampling.
Although these pieces are very 80ish in most regards, they have that playful and respectless attitude with them that signified the Ralph artists.
