Former Cornershop sound experimentalists and lo-fi cheeseball aficionados Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres return with Fistula / Ratstab - Fistula / Ratstab new band but a similar musical approach.
They don't cast as wide a net here though, putting away their guitars and depending on a relatively monochromatic melodic palette, along with a warm but muted sense of breakbeat rhythm. On the surface, the record seems pretty empty-headed, especially compared to the latent political messages and consciousness-raising content of Cornershop. Look deeper, however, and the sunny melodies sound deliberately inappropriate, and just a little too tongue-in-cheek for straight interpretation.
Singh and Ayres, while indulging their peppiest musical instincts, have a comment to make on disco's and dance music in general often vacuous core, holding up a mirror to the unabashed reliance on appearances and consequenceless frivolity. The shame and the success of the record can be found in how easily overlooked that observation ends up being amid the showers of funked-out pop that soak every song through to the bone.

Customer reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right People Power In The Disco Hour (People Power Instrumental Mix) - Clinton - The Remixes. Please try again later. I read a positive review, only to be disappointed by experimental drivel.
I was a Cornershop fan and decided to take a gamble. Format: Audio CD. This is a sort of reassortment of the Pain Of Salvation - Painful Chronicles Cornershop elements - South Asian instruments, summery pop tunes, socially conscious lyrics, turntable experimentalism, and off-kilter funk - with an emphasis on the last few.
Road, which is a four minute slab of instrumental Indian dub - this is unquestionably a dance album. The lead track and first single, "People Power in the Disco Hour" gives a good indication of where things are headed. Starting off with a simple hi-hat pattern and a deliciously funky synth-bassline, it becomes an anthem of sorts, a calling-to-arms for all those disaffected disco-dancers out there?
This is nothing less than a vindication of disco as a political movement, somewhat along the lines of Bis' recent Social Dancing. This isn't quite the same as the disco you remember from the seventies, however: rather than recycle the same basic groove throughout the entire album, Clinton mixes things up immediately, giving us the harder-hitting "Buttoned-Down Disco," which WNU - TourdeForce - Leaving Colours handclaps, a sample from an old Israeli dance hit, and punchy tenor sax riffage.
From there it gets weirder. For example, here's the old-skool funk of "Hip-Hop Bricks," which features a lovable robot musing that "you are like candy Security Code - Various - Hard Techno Mafia our combinations of pee pee mathematics," the inexplicably grooving "Before the Fizz People Power In The Disco Hour (People Power Instrumental Mix) - Clinton - The Remixes Gone," which is 1 Ding - The Opposites - Vuur more than a vocoder-altered chant laid over the simplest funk beat imaginable, and the mindlessly catchy "Welcome to Tokio, Otis Clay" whose only words are "oowee-ooh, ooh-ooh.
Disco and the halfway to discontent is a great, happy, and filled with good vibes album. I have to admit it has some pretty catchy songs, but there is nothing wrong with that. I applaud the simplicity that all the instruments were managed with, and how well the result turned out.
I find myself grooving and dancing everytime i put this record on. It just gets me happy. All tracks are interesting and a pleasure to listen to, especially when you are on the road. This cd is funky enough for me, and i would buy it again if i didnt have it. This album is one of my few "summer albums" that I listened to on a regular basis during this recent summer. One of the highlights of Clinton is the mix of discoesque beats with a sense for the dancefloor.
Their synthesizers at some points in the album sound like cheap toys but it works. Disco and the Halfway to Discontent has a slight nod for making a political statement, but on the other hand one track is full of nothing but shout outs. It's a great little album, I'm curious to see what their next release will be like. If you like the funky stuff that cornershop do then there is a place for this cd in your collection.
A great funky album dedicated to disco music and disco heat from Cornershop guys Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres.
Certainly recommended. As in Cornershop albums, more you listen the album, more you like it. My current favorites are "Buttoned Down Disco" and "g. I had bought this in Amsterdam before it was released here in the US, but European release unfortunately does not include the Fila Red Moon Harvest - Serpent Throne - The Battle Of Old Crow remix.
I may have to buy a new CD, I guess. Tjinder Singh from Cornershop takes this side project of his called Clinton to a funky, tech house side of town. Heard it first almost 8 years ago and still have Georgie Porgie - Georgie Auld - Georgie Auld and His All Star Orchestra (Vinyl, Album) grooving to it at parties.
Wish it was out on vinyl. Love the album. Superbly recorded to boot. A little less emphasis on the 60s and a little more on kitschy early 80s disco -- with a thoughtful, ironic bent.
