Bureau B:
The first thing you'll likely be doing on hearing this reissue of 'After the Heat' is checking what year it was originally put out. 1978?! Pull the other one... The second harvest from Brian Eno's collaborative venture with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster, 'After the Heat' sounds as fresh as a daisy and could probably lay claim to sowing the seeds for a whole cavalcade of genres that range from creamy-electronica and synth-fed hip-hop through to breakcore... Opening with the Vangelis draped environs of 'Foreign Affairs', Eno Moebius and Roedelius tickle a cyclical set of rhythms (piano, synths, bass etc.) into a lurching production so polished you can see your face in it. Following on from this, 'The Belldog' is a growling hunk of electro-pop, whose grandstanding strings are either Wagnerian or proto-breakcore (depending on your predilection) whilst the steely vocals are beamed in direct from an orbiting New Romantic satellite and shades of Eno's work with Robert Fripp billow forth. Elsewhere, 'Base & Apex' is an opaque electronic scale that flirts with the 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe' theme-tune joyously, 'Oil' is one of the most convincing unions of piano (Satie) and silicon you'll ever hear, whilst the gurgling restraint of synth vistas of the closing 'Old Land' will leave you dewy-eyed in awe.
