Remember Remember - Remember Remember
Label: Rock Action Records
Format: CD

intro

Oddly appealing debut album from enigmatic Glaswegian musician Remember Remember whose brand of would-be intellectual minimalism brings back happy memories of the Penguin Café Orchestra and the Durutti Column


From the Rock Action label run by Mogwai comes this peculiar blend, initially of morris dancing and pseudo intellectual minimalism. Though acts with names from a single word repeated twice should be mistrusted at any cost-think of Duran Duran and The The-Remember Remember probably aims to brings back happy memories of the Penguin Café Orchestra and the Durutti Column and he delivers the goods here . This eponymous album is one big lovely cascade which is rimmed to the top with tingling melodies. Verging on the edge of would-be intellectualistic muzak, its quiet streams show hints of hidden compositional talents. As per usual, the album track titles are very vague in a traditional nonsensical hippy manner. Positive mention must go out to the layers of brass music lying underneath these recordings. This is most excellent music to digest your Christmas dinner on.
