"Rebecca Closure - Bonio Bonio Bonio"

Rebecca Closure - Bonio Bonio Bonio
2009-02-26 by Undisco

Just a little review here of a great album, of which I feel compelled to write …... the album being Rebecca Closure’s (Wikipedia Entry) “Bonio Bonio Bonio”, an album so good she named it thrice. It’s due out on iTunes shortly, and you can listen to most of it on the Rebecca Closure page here and Bonio Bonio Bonio page, and also the MySpace page

So, anyway dissecting Bonio x 3 … the album starts with the fiery “You’re So Cheap”, an electro-latin curiosity that lets you know what you’re in for, the album keeps up with the good shit from then on. Next track “40,000” will please fans of Kenny Larkin or any early Detroit techno from the late 80s, and “Dangerous I Know” has shades of Juan Atkins/Model 500 “No UFOs”, albeit with its own more, how shall we say, specific and inimitable Rebecca Closure stamp…

“Face is the Place” keeps up the halycon-days-of-house feel, the lyrics being loud and clear about the location of where to put one’s booty. “La La La” kicks booty, rather than requesting where it’s put – a top track that’s aggressive but grooved-out in equal measure. Following, “Dirty Jungle Ginger” encapsulates the album cover concept, and has some of the finest examples of Closure’s trademark ‘cresto’ lyrics (‘cresto’ being the term for the invented vowel/consonant rhythmo-language that she uses in her music)

“Captain Bailey” is the crowdpleaser, complete with Black Lace-esque ‘come on, row!’ call to arms in the lyrics. The water’s rushing in, so you better row … especially once the Van Halen-esque-with-bongos ending comes in…(!)... and, once you’ve finished your rowing, have a rest and listen to the more 1990s referencing ‘straight up’ old skool dance track, in the form of “Fool”...which sets one up nicely for the luminous icing on this particular sonic cake, closing track “Key Largo” with it’s MONSTER Kraftwerkian keyboard riff, which evokes carefree dancing into the night on a Florida beach at sunset. YEAH!

So, if you like originality with specific reference points (hey, if that makes any sense, which it doesn’t), from Black Lace to Black Dog Productions to Willie Colon to Siouxsie Sioux, then by all means do yourself a favour and pick up “Bonio Bonio Bonio” when it comes out on iTunes!

also…further to this… you can…

(a) still buy the old Hotklub EP on iTunes here

(b) check Closure’s film “Hotklub” (Wikipedia Entry) on the YouTube page

(c) check a video of Closure playing live with Damo Suzuki from Can, also featuring Craig Tamlin of AJATSB on drums, and Justin Paton of Now on guitar, and me on bass.

Peace out peeps!

"Rebecca Closure - Todays new band"

>Today’s New Band – Rebecca Closure
>I’ve just spent a weekend moving out of my flat, lugging boxes and boxes of crap into a van, out of a van, and then into a storage unit. Moving house really is the best way to convince yourself that the vast majority your possessions are simply junk. After staggering under the weight of the ridiculously heavy boxes of CDs, I’m starting to think that the good stuff is a bit pointless too.

Still, I survived the horrors of the event – just – but if you’d like a snapshot of my ‘delicate’ mental state at the peak of the move, plug into Today’s New Band, Rebecca Closure and feel those synapses crackle and buzz.

And so, La La La, a manic, lupine howl of craziness, simultaneously terrifies and thrills with the sheer lunatic rush of noise. It’s a fabulously off-beat, rotten mix. 40,000 is relentless; rushing past and distorting the perceptions of all who listen. The brilliantly in-yer-face Cunt Star is actually more provocative and aggressive than you’d have guessed.

Wild, daft, and brilliant, Rebecca Closure is perfect for rebooting a fried mind. The music of exciting nightmares. Listen here! - A NEW BAND A DAY
