I love a bit of quirky Art Rock and this twelve from ’88 from Devoto and Noko contains 3 quality tacks.
“Public Highway” is a typical Luxuria track, starting in an outdoor environment and we have dueling guitars and synths under Howard’s unique vocals. Simply there is not enough by them on this blog!
The skiffle beat and rockabilly overtones of “Sickly Thug & I” – exotic and storytelling. The arrangement is dense and the quality on this track is outstanding
“Luxuria” is remixed to give it a suitable epic nature, plenty of synths and samplers and brass (and opera) Guitars kick in later making it an interesting journey.
