"Coming from the twisted minds of Spandex and the mysterious Richard Dytch is this latest plate from the recently resurrected Hand on the Plow label, a 12" somehow destined to be a huge pop hit even if we do say so ourselves. Beginning with the future playground anthem 'Cocks and Fannies' we're instantly catapulted into the surreal world of Pleated Lemon. This is a track that has already been described by some as sounding like 'As if Charlie Brooker had given up journalism and turned to a career in music' (although the duo would rather have you reference Spike Milligan), so if that makes any sense to you at all then you're probably interested already. A campfire pseudo-salsa sing-along flecked with electronic production twists, we would put money on this being the oddest collision of sounds you've heard this year. The fun doesn't stop here though, oh no -- side A is wrapped up by the future dancefloor (umm...) smash Carl Cox and Friends, which as you can imagine is a tribute to the said DJ megastar. Somewhere inbetween 'Zorba the Greek' and 'Now That's What I Call Music 22', we have witnessed the birth of a new genre, we just don't know what it's called yet. We are well aware that some of you are looking for music that's just that little bit left of centre, and thank goodness we have Pleated Lemon to kick us about as far left as our bodies will let us before we soil ourselves."
