The Emperor Machine
Taking a break from his duties in famed dubby dance trio Chicken Lips, Andy Meecham issues his debut solo effort as The Emperor Machine. The post-apocalyptic disco of Aimee Tallulah Is Hypnotized is clearly informed by the sci-fi landscapes of John Carpenter's early Eighties scores (such as Escape From New York) and Italo kingpin Giorgio Moroder, what with the pulsing synths on such songs as "The TV Extra Band" and "Sh3a." No one-trick pony, Meecham also ups the funk ante on "Front Man," and goes all Krautrock on "Watching Flying Body Parts." You will now bow down to The Emperor Machine!
