|plunderphonic weirdness by this “mysterious japanese artist” (who may just be jim o’rourke himself...)|
|space ponch is strange even by japanese standards.|
the world shopping with space ponch is the sound of an odd electronic orchestra, a digital dance band, somehow not out of place if you imagine a 1970s ballroom and a stage full of keyboard players, all pecking away at their silicon instruments. vocoded vocals are overused all over the world, but here, they go far beyond what you may have previously heard. giorgio moroder's got nothing on space ponch.
this would have been perfect for ken russell. and cinematic comparison isn't that far off. there's a medley of music from jacques tati, as well as other good-times standards, a cartoon-cutup style of perry and kingsley, the pre-video game sound of yellow magic orchestra, the electronic equivalent to dr. buzzard's original savannah band.
yet somehow space ponch goes somewhere very strange that they haven't been before. it's a case of mistaken identity, because you can't quite identify them.
