Echoing the show's trippy twists and turns, this music relies on dark synths and sparse, transparent rhythms for a sense of glitchy dread. Often, however, it's the music's more ambient moments that distill the cleanest moments of tension.

That was it. It was largely crap, and I for one felt slightly disappointed that there were not body parts or oodles of cash down there. One of the most written-about musicians ever to emerge from Scotland. It is fair to say that he is a niche or even an acquired taste. A full and detailed bio that has been lifted from all music.
Named after the Greek god of mockery, Momus is the alias of Nick Currie , an erudite and esoteric Scottish-born singer, songwriter, author, and provocateur whose genre-defying music careens from acoustic ballads and electro-pop to easy listening and post-punk and back again. Born in , Currie spent time living in Greece and Canada before returning to Scotland to attend university.
In , he dropped out of school to form the Happy Family, a band additionally comprising three prior members of Josef K. After returning to and graduating from university, Currie moved to London in He cut a deal with el Records and released Circus Maximus in , the first offering issued under the Momus name chosen in honor of a Greek god banished from Mount Olympus for daring to criticize the wisdom of Zeus.
The suit was subsequently settled out of court, and all remaining copies of the album were destroyed. Undeterred, Momus returned in with a pair of new records, The Ultraconformist and the ambient-styled Voyager , inspired by the work of Yukio Mishima. After writing the album Shyness for Japanese performer nOrikO who adopted her stage name Poison Girlfriend in tribute to Momus and releasing Timelord his final work for Creation , Currie made tabloid headlines for his marriage to year-old Shazna Nessa , the daughter of a Bangladesh-born restauranteur.
Slender Sherbet , a collection of re-recordings of material from the Tender Pervert era, followed later in the year as Momus suddenly found success in Japan writing and producing for pop songstress Kahimi Karie , with whom he notched a string of five consecutive Top Five hits. Folktronic followed in early , and two years later, Momus debuted on his own American Patchwork label with Oskar Tennis Champion. Analog put out the two-disc Forbidden Software Timemachine: Best of the Creation Years, compilation in , followed by the chanson-forward Otto Spooky and Ocky Milk in and Thunderclown , a collaboration with J ohn Henriksson , arrived in , followed by the British horror film-inspired Bibliotek in He returned in with Pantaloon , a topical cabaret LP that coincided with his move to Berlin.
The following year, Momus purchased an accordion in a junk shop and was inspired to compose an album featuring the instrument; titled Akkordion mixing the German and English spellings , the LP was issued by Creation Records in October I deliberately left off the 23rd and last of them — the one that appeared at 75 and dropped out the following week. His debut album, Candleland , released in September caught a few folk out as it was, in many places, far removed from the sound of the band with which he had made his name.
There was even a song that was the biggest New Order rip-off since Robert Smith and his buddies had written and recorded Inbetween Days The album was reasonably well received by the critics and sold enough copies to reach the Top 20 here in the UK, but it was one of those that came and went quickly, largely as a result of not really having any obvious singles.
Someone came up with the genius idea of inviting Gil Norton to sprinkle some fairy dust on the song. The result was quite splendid The mistake was to release it in an already very crowded market and no matter how hard the pluggers would have worked and pushed it, it was going to struggle to get airplay.
It really deserved a much better fate. The first of them has a feel that would be reproduced on the Evergreen comeback album, while the opening notes of the second song reminds me of Noctural Me from the Ocean Rain album.
Mac was, and still is, a huge football fan and he must have looked on with a bit of envy to see New Order hitting the heights with the England World Cup squad. Eight years later, he got his chance when he was asked to write and record the official song for the team in advance of France Especially the promo The thing is, I stopped a week early last month, mistakingly putting in 7, 14, 21 and 28 April as the date of entry when in fact that was the last date of the chart week.
The piece has subsequently been corrected to ensure with dates of 1, 8, 15 and 22 April now been applied, but this means that the chart announced on 29 April has had to carry over to this piece. April ended with Madonna still sitting on top of the pile for a fourth successive week with Vogue.
It would go on to spend 60 weeks in the album charts in the UK. The year had ended with a number of personnel changes among the collective, particularly on the vocal side of things, but Jazzie B was adamant that the replacements would be every bit as stylish, classy and popular.
The parent album, Vol II: — A New Decade while far from a flop, had less than one-third of the sales of the debut. Soon — My Bloody Valentine. Now, THAT would have certainly become a legendary and much-repeated clip. The single spent two more weeks in the Top before dropping out.
It would take until the following year for MBV to hit the higher echelons of the singles chart for the one and only time To Here Knows When — 29, Feb Stepping Stone — The Farm. The Farm , from Liverpool, had been recording and touring since , although their output till this point in time had been four singles on four different and small independent labels. Nobody really took them too seriously, but then they began to be lumped in with the baggy sound that was coming out of nearby Manchester and their t-shirts became fashionable, out of which, they began to sell music in increasing quantities as will be shown in a future posting within this series.
Hippychick — Soho. Formed in , nobody had paid too much attention to the release of any of their material, even this, their fifth single, a dance-infused number that sampled one of the best and most popular tunes recorded by The Smiths. It sold only enough copies to reach And so, at last, we reach May The month that saw me settle into a daily commute between Glasgow and Edinburgh with the routine involving lots of cassette tapes and a Sony Walkman.
It was over these pieces of plastic that myself and J acques the Kipper truly formed a friendship that remains just as strong today. The first chart of May , announced on Sunday 6 May, is not the finest.
Adamski took over at the top from Madonna and Killer would hold that position for the entire month. Somehow or other, this managed to be a new entry at Circlesquare — The Wonder Stuff. The Stuffies were another who had burst through in , enjoying three Top 40 hits, two of which had been lifted from Top 5 album, Hup. Circlesquare was the third single lifted from the album…. Maybe a little dated some 30 years on, but it was a welcome burst of energy back then.
Other indie bands, such as Soup Dragons , were also paying attention…. How Was It For You? James , in , was another band more famous for t-shirts than chart hits. It would be when their world turned upside down although a couple more minor hits will feature before this ongoing look at comes to an end.
Keep On — Cabaret Voltaire. As with The Cramps a few months ago, I had to rub my eyes in disbelief that Cabaret Voltaire had seen a 45 graze the middle section of the singles chart, with this coming in at It was their highest ever success, albeit a later single in did reach There were 23 new entries into the singles chart in the first week of May , an indication that record labels of all shapes and sizes had that time of the year marked down as one to pay particular attention to.
The rest of the month was a bit quieter. This proved to be a big hit for Talk Talk at the third time of asking. It would go on to enjoy a nine-week stay, peaking at 13, just one of four occasions that Talk Talk would make the Top The Desperate Hours — Marc Almond. His previous effort, A Lover Spurned had managed to make the Top 30 — this flamenco style follow-up came in at 49 climbed three places and then disappeared from view.
The first chart solo sighting of the year old Alison Clarkson , aka Betty Boo. The record label did it the right way…no huge hype and instead justlet the pop music speak for itself. In at 58, from where it climbed all the way to 7, and the week it finally dropped out of the charts some three months later, the follow-up was released along similar lines, meaning a total of 22 successive weeks in the Top 75 and constant radio play. Boomania indeed…. Express Yourself — N. One from Pistola Kicks that has been featured in an Umbro tv ad.

Since he'd first emerged with a series of ultra rare 12" releases in on various drum and bass oriented labels the Wellington, New Zealand based producer had quietly been tipped on the underground as one to watch.
