Hilarious Draft 7.30 review

her you go...

Autechre Draft 7.30

1/5

This really does say it all. Apparently, it's alleged that
certain "fans" of techno warblers Autechre believe the
band's name to be a half-assed acronym for Audio Technical
Research. Thats what it says here. This being the case
(which it isn't), one listen to the godawful blipping and
burping that issues forth when this album is played burns
the question: what, exactly, is being researched here? As
the sound of flatulent elephants farts its way into earshot,
one assumes that whatever is being researched, no cure for
cancer resides therein. The Fact is, Autechre arrived at
their name the same way 7000 monkeys apparently arrive at
Shakespeare - by bashing randomly on a keyboard. Their, erm,
'music' seems to harness this very same process. Even the
track titles bare a worrying randomness about them: '6IE
CR', 'Tapr', 'VL AL 5' - each one like a sodden sock being
dragged "significantly" across a carpet by electric ants,
while TV repairmen suffer heart attacks from the surrealism
of it all. A research exercise into a listener's patience,
hypothetically it would take seven monkeys a mere seven
minutes to come up with the cacophonous belching this album
presents. Words really do fail; so, in summary, I should
like to bash at the keyboard and see what happens...
&^_WANKBUBBLES&^!! Well, whaddya know!

The fucking server appends a .x to the end of the filename
for some reason... take that off so it's just monkey00.zip
and you should be able to open it. It's great fun with one
or two friends and some substances to abuse.

If you can find it somewhere, Babble by Korenthal Associates
is also very cool. You load up four different text files and
it randomizes and intermingles them in real time, and
there's an interface so you can go hmmm, a little less
Charles Manson, more George Bush, a touch more William S
Burroughs...."

All these word randomizer programs are old Dos things! It's
like when people got Windows they lost interest in cool
wordplay!

THANK YOU!! Or... that goes to the writer of the review. ;)
I almost started to believe I was the only one being
disappointed at this album (together with a lot of other
"crap" from Ae lately; Confield, Gantz Graf, etc...)
Damn, it´s sad to se artists once so good just totally fall
down like this.

well he was hardly dissapointed with the album... he
probably hated it before he even reviewed it. I'm sure his
review for much of the ae albums would be the same.

and personally i'm far from disapointed, its my fave ae
release at the mo, i can't stop listening to it!

as for where the review came from, it came from a shitty
free music magazine called The Fly... i think its primarily
for indie music.

well reading his review it comes across that way... that he
would say the same about most ae releases.

and considering it came from an indie music magazine i very
much doubt he really gave it more than 1 listen (if that)
