Album


Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей. Monday, 23 December 2013. Human Flesh - The Third Human Attempt Aeon Records AE003 1984. More Alain Neffe abstract electronica this time called Human Flesh. It sounds very similar to Pseudo Code, but without the Mark E. Lots of echo laden synth doodlings,with occasionnal submerged vocalising,drowning in the large spaces left behind by the sparce instrumental backdrop. Very minimal,very good indeed. Jonny recommends the great new album from CIA Debutante. The expat duo that is CIA Debutante hail from France & have been murking the waters of the cassette underground for the latter part of this decade. This Heat 35. This Is Not This Heat 1.

In the last three or so years there has been a steady flow of old and new music from Alain Neffe, many of which were reviewed in Vital Weekly. Neffe, once the 'boss' of Insane Music, at the very forefront of Belgium's electronic underground music and a vital source for great cassettes, was active in a plethora of groups, such as Pseudo Code, Bene Gesserit, Subject, or solo as I Scream. Oh yes, and Human Flesh of course. In Human Flesh Neffe applied the techniques of the network to gather new music: people would send in their voices, synths, percussion and it could end up in a composition by Human Flesh. Or sometimes people would drop by in Nivelles and record something in the studio of Neffe, a low ceiling basement filled with equipment (if I remember well from that afternoon in 1985 when I visited Alain and Nadine). Lots of the music was released on cassette, but also lots was given away to compilations. I do remember from that afternoon that I was thrilled to see all these obscure compilation cassettes and LPs with their music. It certainly gained them some status in the scene. Of course also because their music was always quite good. Pop like even at times, but always with a fine sense of experiment and always a combination of synthesizers, rhythm machines and voices. In those tapes only a few LPs have been released, one by Pseudo Code, one by Bene Gesserit and one by Human Flesh, and all three have been re-released on CD by EE Tapes, along with Plinkity Plonk, an avid promoter of Alain Neffe's music. Here we have the Human Flesh LP, along with eleven bonus tracks, all from compilation LPs from the same period, 1984-1990. A typical Human Flesh piece consists of the steady beat of the rhythm machine, some synth like drones played on a string organ, a saxophone, percussion or zither and a female voice reciting a text or singing. It's more common that the text is recited than sung, and more females than males, but Xavier S (also of Pseudo Code) has a
recognizable voice, which makes the pieces sound like Pseudo Code rather than Human Flesh. Here the sound of Neffe's various projects blend together. Close to eighty minutes, with twenty-four pieces this might seem a heavy load, but Human Flesh is the sort of band/project that knows how to do more with a lot less. With their relatively easy set up, but with a lot of imagination, they created back then a lot of great music. Not every track is a winner, but each piece has it's own character and it ranges from introspective to jubilant, from cheery to sad. The only LP by Human Flesh was great, but having it on CD, with all these great bonus tracks is even better. (FdW)

=================================================================
We continue our campaign to promote EE Tapes' string of releases with historical and contemporary music centred round Alain Neffe. In addition to Human Flesh, Alain was or is involved in bands/projects like Pseudo Code, Subject, BeNe GeSSeRiT, Cortex, I Scream and more. For further information, check out our interview with the man some years ago. This time we're dealing with historical recordings altogether. The 35th Human Attempt was originally released as a 13 tracks LP by Alain himself on his Insane Music label in 1985. The new CD-version includes 11 bonus tracks in addition, from different hard-to-find vinyl compilations released between 1983 and 1991. 79 minutes all together.

The concept here is music of different kinds with spoken words on top. In the beginning it included Alain and the local musical friends and collaborators of his that he chose for each track. Later the concept was refined a bit. Alain then wrote all the lyrics, in French or English, often sent them to some of his contacts abroad who translated them to their native language, recorded the translated spoken lyrics, preferable (to Alain) by a female voice, sent the recording back to Alain who, on his own or with friends, recorded music inspired by the lyrics and the voices. The process could take a long time to finish. It is described more in-depth in the above mentioned interview.

According to the EE Tapes home page, The 35th Human Attempt soulwise is 'his most intimate musical project dealing with many demons and ghosts. It's all about "emotions", performed solo or assisted by a bunch of international artists...' The latter includes Xavier S (voice and some early lyrics) from, by the start of Human Flesh, the defunct Pseudo Code on some of the tracks. Alain's wife to be and collaborator in BeNe GeSSeRiT, Nadine Bal aka. Benedict G, contributes vocals on others. This may occasionally make it hard to discern Human Flesh from the two other Neffe bands, but only a little on a few tracks. The music ranges from the neat and pretty (for instance the slightly melancholic "Nymphomaniac Child" and the ditto organ parts of "Comme Sur Un Mouton", not counting the distorted vocals and other disturbances) to the noisy and highly experimental. Generally the album demonstrates the urge to try out anything within reach, for better or for worse. For instance, "Ytilaer" includes Xavier S's slowed down vocals, whereas it has been speeded up in "(Only A) Human Being". There are both forwards and backwards vocals, as well, and who knows, maybe some sideways in here, too. Or in "Alone (First Part)" with spoken German voice and American-English singing at the same time? Even better in the Second Part with Japanese and German voices simultaneously over white noise synthesizer and other more harmonic devices. And where else can you find rhythm box with echo as an effect? These are only a few examples. EE Tapes has labelled the music as minimal, ambient, modern classical, experimental and avant-garde. About right! Especially the floating tracks with keyboards and the occasional sax have aged with grace.

A few times you might discern elements typical of the time. The inevitable rhythm box is not present as often as one might expect. "Every Ill Man" includes both a Tuxedomoon-sounding bass and an American voice that resembles Laurie Anderson (aka. Mrs. Lou Reed for the last five years). The latter even more present in "... In Your Life Full Of Screams". Both the band and artist were immensely popular in arty-experimental circuits in the early 1980s. But on most of the album, bonus tracks included, the music challenge the limits of the artists' imagination instead of copying. I was involved in an experimental musical kindergarden for the advanced kind of project at the time the original LP was released. It served both as a revelation and inspiration; the message reading: anything goes! Only self-criticism serves as a limit for what one might want to release. Almost 30 years on The 35th Human Attempt still sounds fresh and might still serve as a revelation for uninitiated.
