It's No Fun To Compute
"Rope is the brainchild of Jayrope, a Berliner who exploded from the loins of a church organist father and a psychologist mother. This clearly marked him as a man destined to become a maverick figure in the denizens of Berlin's underground. Citing his influences as early rap, 60s Beatles, rock and roll and jazz, he became fascinated with acid (the music) when it appeared in the late 80s, and started doing 'computer stuff'. He reverted to 'handmade' efforts to avoid getting into a rut, and the music that was to become Rope Hotel began to take shape. A mixture of electronic and real instruments that set it apart from the plethora of other albums escaping from bedrooms at the time. It's No Fun To Compute is in turn a more pugnacious affair and good fun. It's aggressive, uncompromising, and is likely to appeal to those who like to chill, but do so with attitude."
