Banal
Before they decided, like so many, to forgo originality for Techno, BO QU were creating a music which spanned an area similar to that of COIL's early-Eighties music - indeed, on this album, there are moments which sound similar in a lot of ways to the sound on "Stolen And Contaminated Songs". Certainly with tracks like "Metroland" and "Westbloc" there was a similar rhythmic approach - a funkiness to the electronics which reminds one of YELLO's earlier pieces. The remaining pieces were more dry, fragmented and confrontational - kind of like a stripped-down early TEST DEPT with the interesting metallic sounds and compositional gambits removed. Certainly their embracing a younger, more modern dance music did them little harm - and what they created was some of the best music of their career. But, despite the comparisons made on this page, there was a strong flavour of originality to their sound at this point. "Mano - A - Mano", for instance, took the Funk from ENO's take on TALKING HEADS and gave it new life.
So this album really is a mixed bag. Search through it and you find some real moments of wonderful music, but I think as an overall enjoyable listening experience it probably casts it's net a tad too wide. Industrial Funk it may be, but sounds more like one group from each genre playing alternate tracks, rather than an amalgamated chimera style.
