Review by DjBatman
3 stars out of 4

I got this one directly from the artists in late'97... I was supposed to use one of the tracks in a compilation cd for the Italian market... but the cd went on hold indefinitely weeks ago. I got in contact with the band by Rev.Otis F. Odder of The Bran Flakes fame. He's into massive sample use, tape mixing and hardcore use of found-sounds in general, so he adviced me to listen to Antediluvian's stuff. They sound like an Australian techno version of Negativland (hmmm... incidentally, in the US they had this album published on Seeland, Negativland's label). There are a few atmospheric moments, like the spoken bits on "20.000 (ph7)" or the Bentley Rhythm Ace-ish funk revival of "Orange" (entirely made of samples, just like most of the album). The rest is four-on-the-floor beats, burps, funny bits, weird voices, sometimes disturbing noises of all kinds and fragments of radio (err! Was that Lennon's "Woman"?) ;) I like their stuff even if I suspect their work is not easily enjoyable for the occasional listener... but, after all, this is "Music for the Odd Occasion". ;)
