So It Goes
"Things go slow sometimes. The third installment of AM/PM's sublime quadruple twelve inch series took its time and rewards the patience. AM/PM goes from strength to strength and brings us two more tracks after having created a buzz with the brilliant and critically acclaimed 'Also' EP in 2005 and 'Maratea' (1/4)and 'Bought and Sold' (2/4) in 2006. Originally Radovan Scasascia kept close to the self imposed stricture of only working from the last notes of existing music, but by now allows drum machines and bass lines to pull things away from classical home listening to the dance floor and elsewhere. 'So it Goes' kicks off in a sorted fashion, but eventually is underpinned by a bubbling bass line which nods back to the day when bass lines had to come from that famous Roland kit. A tight clap keeps things together and moving onwards, but over time 'So it Goes' starts to move in opposing directions and seems to go forwards and backwards at the same time. 'Pellicci' borrows its name from an East London, Italian-run cafe, a lively and busy spot, but possibly instilling half Italian, Zurich-born Radovan Scasascia with memories of a different time and a different place. This is the track more connected to earlier AM/PM work, concerned with the erosion of clock-time,entering the 'perceived' time of perhaps, Michelangelo Antonioni's Il Deserto Rosso."
