Auto6 - May 1998
Dig out your old grey coat! Pile on the eyeliner! 1981 is back! Joe Fleury clearly didn't listen to a
single Nineties record in his life. And so he delights us with fifteen tracks that are pure VISAGE-SOFT CELL-GARY NUMAN (listen to "FM Station" and shed a nostalgic, mascara-blackened tear). At times he also sounds a hell of a lot like that compendium of snobbish Eighties-ness, DALI'S CAR, and I will love him forever for this (ah, that bass...). Weirdest of the bunch: "Jungle Beat," where he rants on about ''dancing to the jungle beat'' with a voice and a beat that's perfect suicidal JOY DIVISION. This guy is a genius.
Fantastique!!! - Paola Sorrentino
Fleury: BIDOCHE MUSIQUE - A hometaper all th' way from
Joe sent this in after reading a copy of "I.N." (all th' way over there, eh?). Spoken word
over top of some interesting bass/synth lickz'. He's a 4-trakker from WAY back... alla' way
from '86. Joe calls his poetry "hyper-realist"; I get th' impression that label comes from
th' (somewhat) "dark" shadings of th' music he puts under, over, around & thru his words.
'nother English-mun in a foreign land, it seems. Last one we made close contact with
was David Zax, over in Taiwan (wonder if he's still around - haven't heard from him in ages).
There's some similarity, tho' Zax seemed to be more "folk" oriented than Fleury... much more
symphonic influence here. This is interesting, tho' it demands that you not allow any distractions.
You must be INVOLVED in his phrasings to get a real sense of th' mood he's painting for you.
Gets a RECOMMENDED! Rotcod Zzaj
