Jack or Jive - (Dura)² Du

We may lose some readers here, but who cares. Jack or Jive were sort of in their own non-scene, not quite "noise" enough or "pop" enough, but they straddled that line sometimes. They also had a certain witchypoo "ethereal" shoegazer post-Cocteau Twins/Projekt Records quality that either is something you crave or is an instant turn-off. They did a neat collaboration with Christoph Heemann once, called Seclusion, but otherwise they seem to have kept to themselves.

It'll take more than that to lose this reader.

There's an "outsider" charm at play at here. Do I detect the influence of the late great MES in the vocals on side A?

Dont know this one but my wife got all of the other cds, love the Seclusion one and collaboration with Alio Die. Endless ethereal flow...

People of lesser taste are of no concern.
