Description

Ilios - Love Is My Motor

The eight track titles for this album have been swiped from the second verse of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", immortalised by Frankie Valli in 1967, but if that's a photo of Frankie on the cover I can only say he isn't looking all that good these days. There's no other connection with Frankie Valli as far as I know. Why, what were you expecting, samples? Ilios, aka Dimitris Kariofilis, currently residing in Santander, Spain, I believe, is about as far as you could hope to get from fun lovin' plunderphonics and smash'n'grab dancefloor-friendly DSP (hey, whatever happened to Kid 606?); Ilios albums aren't just serious, they're goddamn scary. Ever heard Old Testament? Perfect soundtrack for apocalyptic floods and folks slaughtering each other with asses' jawbones. Love Is My Motor is equally austere, but more varied. In fact, it's my favourite Ilios album to date (though talking about a "favourite" Ilios album is like choosing a "favourite" poisonous plant or "favourite" serial killer). From the eerie whistling glissandi of the opening (maybe it's just because he's Greek but I'm sure I felt the chilly breath of the ghost of Xenakis as it passed through the wall) to the woofer fucking thrills of "But if you feel like I feel", via "The sight of you leaves me weak", which apparently features the cello of my pal Nikos Veliotis, though I'd never have guessed, this is gripping stuff. It finally explodes with some terrifying blasts of white noise halfway through "Please let me know that it's real" (if track five buggered your woofers, this should put paid to the tweeters), after which "You're just too good to be true" sounds like a field recording from a railway station in the outer circles of Hell, and the final track is 18'47" of sheer desolation. Terrific stuff.
