80s electronic folk funk
About half way through this we are properly in the 80s retro section of the second gig (28 March 07). Just as the punk revolution of 1976 was to topple prog, so the indie movement in 1989 was probably looking to bulldoze precisely this variety of sleek, white linen suited, sunset-in-Miami gloss. I think of the number of times I use the word "industrial" for Improvizone, while this is hardly Jean-Herve Peron. Phil Manzanera/801 more like. But, just as any old alcohol at a party will shed people's inhibitions and make them sociable, so all sorts of dreamy wash will do the job as unintrusive ambient-with-beats bar background music. I like it. I don't care what it is, and I think it does what Improvizone says, depending on which bit of the tin you're looking at.
