Who me?

Collaboration between Golden Teacher's Lady Two Collars and Sue Zuki from Organs of Love, recorded at Green Door Studios, Glasgow. Ace, diverse, minimalist dub/dancehall/house/R&B bullets, built out of not much more than drums, bass, hurtling electronic shrapnel, and vocals oscillating between Warrior Queen-ish bark (not to be confused with the actual dog barking, also present) and mocking/mellifluous, Saada Bonaire-esque half-sung riddling. Felt a bit overcooked on first contact but has won us over. Reminds of nothing so much as Maurice Fulton's Mu, given a distinctively UK soundsystem spin. You can also hear the influence of The Bug, maybe even DJ Scud and I-Sound's Wasteland, in some of the bombed-out, red-tickling rhythms, elsewhere they explore more obviously industrial/post-punk dungeon-ooze, and have themselves invoked Madame X, Stuart Argabright and Francois K as patron saints - certainly the general freedom of approach echoes no wave, early hip-hop and mutant disco (not to mention electroclash). But no re-tread: it feels dead fresh. In fact production-wise these tracks are pretty madly on-point, rude and reduced, made with love, and so the more attention-seeking elements not only sit snugly, they really do the business. Can't help but feel that the good will out, eventually, and that LAPS are destined for bigger, more garish things that will almost certainly turn you against them. So enjoy this one while you can.
