Fata Morgana




The industrial project of Oliver Ho and Tommy Gillard at its most subversive and evocative, with two preoccupations threaded throughout: Middle-Eastern percussion, most vivid in the chimes of Casting and the driving doumbek rhythms of Burning and The Sands; and the structural iteration of chaos, underlying a collage of wild left-turns, scornful of repetitive hooks and other musical routines. Early birds bag a 7” by Ho’s Desert Burials, evoking classic punk/funk hybrids like Cabaret Voltaire.
