Do you like raw, heavy drum breaks? Do you like warm and fuzzy analog synths? Do you like the JBs, Can, Hendrix, and Jimmy Smith? If you said "yes" to any or all of the above, buy this album now! Switched On has all this and then some, and is nothing short of mind blowing. Here's what the label says: Now-Again Records in association with Five Day Weekend, presents Mr. Chops's Switched On. Chop is a producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and the proprietor of Cheshire, UK-based Ape Recording Studios, one of the finest analog studios in the world.... and a repository for vintage synthesizers, guitars, drums and gear sourced from the world over. Thus, Switched On is a natural album: Chop's homage to the great Moog-lead albums that proliferated in the wake of the synthesizer's invention in the late 60s and early 70s. Unlike those records - like Dick Hyman's Age of Electronicus, which contained one great synth-funk track amidst a series of soft pop hits - this album is all killer and no filler. Mr. Chop tackles songs by the likes of Can, the JBs, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Smith via a still-futuristic blend of heavy drums by The Heliocentrics' Malcolm Catto and his own fuzzy guitars and cosmic keys.
