Duke Pandemonium [Import]
2009 release from Marmaduke Duke, the self-created surreal musical world of enigmatic Scottish duo the Atmosphere and the Dragon (two frontmen better known as Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro and JP Reid of Sucioperro). Duke Pandemonium is part two of a mythological musical album trilogy, performed and produced by the Atmosphere and the Dragon in 24 hours, and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Mars Volta, Bloc Party). from the minimalist lo-fi Electronica of 'Kid Gloves', to the LCD Soundsystem-esque Dance-Punk mayhem of 'Silhouettes'; the urgent Drum 'N' Bass beats of 'Music Box'; the provocatively infectious Pop-hooks of 'Rubber Lover; and concluding with the carnival craziness of 'Skin the Mofo' - complete with steel drums; Duke Pandemonium is the epitome of an eclectic record. 14th Floor Recordings.
