This gargantuan Album set compiles Album discs of solo material by Richard H. Kirkco-founder of British industrial music pioneers Cabaret Voltaireranging from mid-'70s experiments recorded at his parents' house to late-'80s tracks influenced by the acid house movement. The release is very much in line with CV 's early material as well as TG 's work -- there are sheets of white noise, distorted vocals, mutilated samples, primitive drum machine pulsations, and a whole lot of creepiness.
The album's first disc is a slightly more polished development of the experimentation of his earlier work. The rhythms are slightly more upfront, but everything still sounds rough, jagged, and sinister.
Tracks such as the warped dub centerpiece "Force of Habit" demonstrate Kirk 's mastery of bizarre, unsettling effects and deconstructed rhythms. High Time Fiction 's second disc is much different, consisting of a far more experimental minute piece titled "Dead Relatives," filled with hypnotic loops of jarring horn blasts and spooky voices.
The piece could easily be mistaken for an Album Nurse with Wound recording. Inafter CV had begun producing more commercial-sounding dance music and signed with Virgin and later ParlophoneKirk returned to the group's original indie home, Rough Trade, for two albums.
Black Jesus Voice is the more accessible of the two, containing heavy dance rhythms and vicious sample manipulation. While much Album danceable than his earlier work, "Martyrs of Palestine" flashes back to his industrial electro-punk sound. Ugly Nocturnal Children - Richard H Kirk* - #7489 (Box SetKirk 's other album, prefers slow, crushed tempos, and is far more dramatic and tense. Tracks such as "Hollywood Babylon" and "Voodoo" contain the types of Mad Saturator - Wagdug Futuristic Unity - Nu Riot rhythms and samples that Kirk would explore with his later work, particularly under the name Sandoz.
Highlights include the fantastic "Never Lose Your Shadow 12" Mix " which was eventually released on a 12" by Minimal Wave ina house cover of Can 's "I Want More," the skipping-record User - One Break - One Loop - One True Religion "Immaculate Riot," and extended 12" versions of some of the Black Jesus Voice tracks.
