FLUX: Uncarved Block: CD

Jan 31, 2008

This is Flux of Pink Indians back in 1986 when they dropped their punk stylings and went more to a modern rock electronic sound and shortened their name. It’s quite interesting in the same light as latter-period Chumbawumba or the Talking Heads. Male and female vocal interplay is always an interesting combination. The music feels more like jamming than actual mechanical songwriting. It is a mash of different elements—jazz, dub, and ambient. I totally ignored this when it first came out. To listen to this now, they were probably way ahead of their time and too late for the present.
