Marcia Blaine School For Girls - Pink Sticks
Label: Static Caravan
Format: 7"


Powerful loungy electronics from Glasgow threesome, which takes in elements of modern jazz composition

Form and method anyone? Forgive me for being harsh, but the modern media still employs methods developed by futurists and fascists in the 1920's. I hope to get this right, as I take this Static Caravan 7" single to be an excursion out of loungy electronics into modern cocktail jazz composition. The Marcia Blaine School for Girls is a fictional establishment.. It's a threesome from Glasgow, all men of course, then again probably not, since with musicians like TMBSFG, confusion very often is the objective. Marcia Blaine is the fictional headmaster with a liking for the no-hesitation theories by 1920's and 1930's  people who shouldn't have gotten into power. The single's A-side 'Pink Sticks' is melodrama rendered with a soft glitch approach. Noodling along gently for three pretty minutes, 'Pink Sticks' needs to be followed by the B-side 'We' for full effect. Through that sequence you'll notice a sense of communal belonging in 'We'. The track builds on the intertwining of keyboards with glitch samples and actually reaches great heights with an effortless balance.
