Click et Craque - Monsieur Mo Rio
Alongside Monsieur Mo Rio, Stereolab are glue-sniffing thugs and Belle and Sebastien are tooled-up psychopaths. Yes, it's bonjour soleil as you enter the charming, skewiff world of MMR. Not to say there's a lack of experimental edge: MMR is after all a member of the Schwaben German collective Metabolismus.
Click et Craque is a collection of tracks from mid 90s cassettes. A penchant emerges for taking a base popular tune - e.g. Good Day Sunshine; Les Sucettes; Sing a Song (!) - and defamiliarising and defracting it through a twisted electro-pop lens.
A delight. Just know what you're getting yourself into.
