I was born in the time of a Great Fire. Not the one in London - I'm beginning to feel the pinch of age, but not to that degree! No, this was a very human fire, an Emotional fire. BEATLEMANIA was in full swing, and the then teenagers (who are now coming up to retirement age, bless 'em) were all crying at airports and screaming for the four lads from Liverpool who, let's give them their due, almost single-handedly changed music forever. I was also born in a cattle shed which, historically, tends to bring it's own fame - I'm still waiting for recognition, and as for carpentry - don't ask! My parents, who decided their lives weren't full without a brat to carry on the genes had a handful of the early singles in that shabby record box which I was familiar with, and gave me a taste for lo-fi at an early age. I've never been a fan myself - they were there, as part of a British upbringing as the Queen and corrupt politicians (hey, guess we don't have the monopoly there!), but I never pursued their music - like illness, it finds YOU! My wife, on the other hand is a fan, so I have lately become indoctrinated into their music, and a lot of what appears on this is somewhat familiar. Far from being a rape - a cruel, inhuman act taking power and choice from the individual, inflicting pain and degradation on others, this is in fact a kind of tribute. Tracks loop or sample snatchs of one of their tracks over which BCO intone their own RESIDENTS-like vocals, combining it with fire alarm which fades in and out; take harmonic lines right out of one of the Fab Four's tracks (clever - how'd they do that?), playing it solo, joined, amusingly, by the occasional sampled cough; they remix pieces spatially, going off at an abstract tangent which you somehow feel the late period BEATLES would have enjoyed exploring given the chance or inspiration; lower, moodier cycle of sounds - kinda like LULL heard from a distance; slowed down voices reading out poetry (presumable lyrics) in deep, 'Dat's Da Blooze' style while music fades in and out below it; more abstract still, with the single note intro from (I assume) "Hard Day's Night" crashing around like a wounded beast - fragments of various tracks appear and disappear, and I assume BCO play some of the instruments in what sounds like a sprawling Jazz thrash-out, looping a variety of moments with spoken word snatches; track a low, mellow loop; track nine is quite amusing with a muted rhythm over which high, PYTHON-esque voices intone 'Boogie-Woogie'; an almost ambient, Isolationist amble through low noise with snatches of familiar guitar; eleven takes loops and fragments of gated spoken word and laughter, sneaking around to form a kind of structure, before heading into the realms of the utterly Surreal, with slices of "Strawberry Fields" (which itself, I guess, was in the realms of the unreal); they take at least one snatch from "Day In The Life" and adds it to the Jazz-Crazy melting-pot of samples and cut-ups; various pieces are intercut, looped, remixed and reconstructed in such a way as to totally change the meaning behind the music. It's a long, fascinating concept album, very much in keeping with the group they both mock and pay tribute to. They take a lot of material which isn't from the group, but sounds as if it's from the same period. It's amusing, challenging, bizarre, but most of all a good example of talent from one creative area paying tribute to talent from another. It would be nice to see THE BEATLES (or those remaining) 'doing' BIG CITY ORCHESTRA! And it'd be nice to know what they thought of this record. Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.
