Editorial Reviews

Five years after the 2000 debut album of Mr Oizo, ''Analog Worms Attack,'' Mr Oizo returned with his second album, ''Moustache (Half A Scissor)''. It was heard by a young man in LA by the name of Steve Ellison. Steve is now better known as Flying Lotus and his label, Brainfeeder is re-releasing ''Moustache'' in an edition of 1000 vinyl copies. It's a thing of amazing, demented beauty which Ellison felt deserved to be heard again and reassessed.

Mr. and Miss. Oizo:

I am going to carry the child for them.

My balls are heavy with sweat. Sweat for Oizo.

I THINK GOD HAD A HAND IN THIS.

Here is a list to discribe Oizo-

1. When They Called Him a fake.

2. Bottom Totem

3. Animal Counter-Attack!!!

4. PRESS and HOLD

5. A Tissue For Her Slobber

6. Time To Get Dizzy In The Back Yard!

7. Violent Menace And His Spooky Stare.

8. I Make Stuff Up.

9. Play in the candy fountain.

10. Piano teeth.

...........

Mabe I am going in the wrong direction here.

I like it, It is really nice on the ears. With plenty of things to keep you interested. Sick beats in great harmony.

Buy this album or die in a car fire.

xoxo

LUCA MAINI's igloomag.com REVIEW ::

(06.07.06) Back in 1999 Analog Worms Attack hit me like a baseball bat on my gums, I was still listening to some hip-hop and that record deconstructed pretty much all the musical standards I knew at the time, plus there was the huge surprise hearing an album that was so distant from the huge success of the Flat Eric TV commercial. Moustache (Half A Scissor) is not as striking for me, but only because after a few years I'm used to extreme stuff; I think that an average F Com listener would be very unsettled instead.

This time Mr. Oizo gives his interpretation of disco music, and it's like taking dusty old tapes of Studio 54 music, chopping them into little pieces and then reassemble them randomly. As several interludes reclaim, "this is computer muuuusic!" The result is a noisy hardcore version of Akufen music: intentional glitches everywhere, hiccupping beats, surface noise boosted to the maximum and still this messy demolished disco retains a shadow of rhythmical texture. You could almost dance to tracks like "Latex," "Nurse Bob" and "Square Surf" (if only they would last more than 2-3 minutes), but you can only go nuts when you listen to screwballs such as "Berleef" or "Scum Hotel." Moustache... is the disco/electro equivalent of Bogdan Razcynski or Venetian Snares, so be prepared for catchy bouncing basslines hindered by sudden interruptions, out of tempo beats and screeching samples. There's a tune that stands out on all this oddity, and it's the minimal electro-techno stomper "Stunt," produced with Sebastian Tellier: a kick, a snare, the most baroque synth melody you can imagine and a thick layer of surface noise smearing everything. Moustache... --it's a forty minute long floor-clearer, it would be an excellent death blow to disco and electro revival, but I fear that the musical market will be continuously submerged by silly compilations that recycle the same tunes.

Oh yeah, slipping in under most peoples radars in Sept of 05, is the maniacal Mr.Oizo. Weighing in at just under ten tons of middle finger and giving all the glitch prudes out there a run for their money. Where Prefuse 73 finds his niche in oddly cut jazz excerpts organized in an angular fashion but ultimately possing no more threat than Mouse on Mars, and where Aphex Twin glitches between better received ambient notions and his singles-passed-off-as-albums mentality, Oizo returns with all the unapologetic belligerence of a broken robot on a rampage to shake the sleepy seeds out of Autechre. He was obviously a tad offended by being labeled a sellout filmmaker raking in Levis money with little more than "minimal house" set to a cute sock puppet video. This time he seems far more rabid for rule breaking. It feels like he took Analog Worms Attack and shoved it into a woodchipper. This whole album is cut into off-the-grid time signatures that start and stop with a herky jerky pace. The reason that works for me is because I never thought Oizo was anything but a sound and video artist with a hilarious sense of humor, and I savor every morsel. I still crack up at the paused bass lines of Analog Worms Attack and the strange scratch passages lent by his now-absent DJ. Reviewers seem to have looked over the fact that Mr.O stiil drops the funk on cuts like "Latex," but he just doesn't give it to you like you want it, instead he surprises the listener with twists and turns that would leave any programmer saying "how the hell did he do that." In this way, Moustache could be summarized as a magic show of apparently ripped-open drum machine wizardry, because at times it seems like he's done something terrible to his computer utilizing techniques like the random dual needle drop beat juggle of DJ Swamp.Read more ›

Mr. Oizo's main objective with the album is to get away from structure which in music can be a very risky topic to touch. When you listen to Mr. Oizo's "Flat Beat", you know that his music is not for everyone. Only for those willing to listen and participate. Now I see that this music is backwards, and half of the music is cut-up and improvised as if the music is some sort of IDM Action sequence upon itself. I say this album is good enough for your money, but only if you are willing to listen to the sound of music chopped up and out of structure, for the sake of abandoning the name of music. But odds are you wouldn't really enjoy it unless you flip the entire album upside down wouldn't you? I never known anyone who would purposefully put "The End" first (it kind of makes you feel like you are cheating even after you began.) and end with a great beginning (Vagiclean). Buy this album if you like Electronica but don't really care about dancing. Also, buy this if you love to hear what the sound of freedom to express sounds like. In any direction you go with the album, you will not regret taking the album (and the concept) in.

Rating: 7.5/10
