THE WEDDING PRESENT
The Weddoes' first offering on their new label will leave their old fan-base gasping for air and old cynics more than a little surprised. 'Click Click', with Heather Lewis's marvelous vocals backing Gedge, just illustrates their chameleon nature, altering their basic shape to provide a fresh front. The anguished but desperately endearing love-songs are still intact, naturally, nowhere more so than on the gentle, old-fashioned 'Spangle' which has added crackles and church bells for atmosphere.
Steve Fisk has produced the dozen tracks here, including the pogo-a-go-go of a single 'Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah'. Certainly the whole feel of Watusi is more dynamic and much sharper than the Albini stop-start sludge of Sea Monsters.Only one filler, 'It's A Gas', on what is otherwise a BLT of an album. (7)
