Artist: KAA ANTILOPE
Title: VPRO RadioNome April 2 1982
Format: 12"
Label: Enfant Terrible (@)
Rated: *****
Recorded live for the RadioNome radioshow, broadcasted by the Dutch radio and television broadcaster VPRO, VPRO RADIONOME APRIL 2 1982 is the fist and maybe last chance to know a particular band called Kaa Antilope. They produced a sort of experimental/pop mix where melancholic melodies were coupled by analog sounds creating a particular atmospheres. Since the first listening I found the ten songs of the MLP perfect as a post catastrophe soundtrack, for example. The apparent fragile musical structures are toughened by the various synth noises that create a sort of theatrical approach. Check "Red bushes" and "Rise up helicopter, like a bird" excerpts at the label's website and you'll get a good picture of their sound. The 12" is limited to 500 copies and will have also liner notes written by band's friends.
