KUBIN, FELIX - MATKI WANDALKI (CD)


"Thank god that today, more than two decades later, there is no stopping this former "wunderkind"! Admittedly, the mischievous demolition of pop structures, which was once attributed to a juvenile Berserkerdom, has since then evolved into a more conscious Dada-Hooliganism. Or - to put it simple with the metaphor of the album title - it turned into the "Mothers of Destruction" (in Polish: Matki Wandalki = Vandalizing Mothers). The fact that the anaemic ghost of deconstruction doesn't spoil the 13 tracks on this CD must have to do with Felix' abstruse humor. Like his love of sounds, the hum of Kubin's cosmos is powerfully distinct. It reminds (not only) me of tschechoslovakian animation films and - even further back - of the electro-acoustic sound experiments of the fifties avant-garde long before their development into pop.

Matki Wandalki unites several pairs of aesthetic contradictions. Abstract Darmstadt goes Pop. The result is "witty" musique concrete and something that I can only interpret as "program-music" without a narrative "program". CD contains bonus-track 'Hello' which was the flip side of his latest 7"."
