THE MELAMINE DIVISION PLATES (and nothing whatsoever to do with Alan Jenkins, whoever he may be) The
At Last! Out of the haar and brume of rumour, come the legendary Melamine Division Plates, captured at last on disc - making Cordelia at a stroke, officially, the best label in the four galactic quadrants (yes better even than In Coma Berenice. Would I lie to you?) The Plates Up the ante even on experimental surf music as the band keep forgetting what decade they're in and what they were going to do two minutes ago, usually pursing several musical hares at the same time. The hares don’t stand much of a chance. Great tunes though; baffling arrangements; incomprehensible logic. As someone – oh it was me – said about the last Cordelia release: to anyone with a yen for the music of Borges’ Forking Paths, this many-worlds approach to musical history will be like a homecoming: familiar, retro, experimental, mundane and profoundly strange – with outrč packaging and twilight zone sleeve-notes, this is probably - as we dry-as-dust academics say - the dog’s bollocks.
