310, Prague rock e.p. (white) 12"
Following the vinyl kleptomania of the recent Black Helicopters'
record, Leaf again ransack the vaults of popular culture, again avoid
serious copyright difficulties by keeping the label white and
again limit availability (1000 copies only). This record is the UK
debut for production duo 310 although they're 2 albums old in their
native USA. Fellow Americans might spot the phonetic gag in the title
when I tell you that this release splices up a Jurassic Park mix of
prog rock dinosaurs---one track each for Genesis,
King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and, yes, Yes. It's crazy, but
it just works---a snippet of interview opens each track and 310 blend
segments of 6 or so songs with a crunching beat, reverence and
gravitas. A colossal task and a spot-on result. Best for me is
"Trustus," the Floyd remake.
