OIZO MOUSTACHE (HALF A SCISSOR) MEETS VINYL

Five years after the debut album “Analog Worms Attack(2000),” featuring a tune featured in an advert featuring a lemon-coloured creature who drives a car and bobs his cute ol’ head, Mr Oizo returned with his second album, “Moustache (Half A Scissor)”. The producer had spent the intervening period throwing out all his analog gear and learning to chop, programme and explode beats and music on computers. The result was an album of such aggressively funny and brilliant programming that most of the millions of people who had got into the yellow thing ran around screaming and bumping into each other until they cried and fell over.

Today, Brainfeeder is re-releasing “Moustache” in an edition of 1000 vinyl copies. “It’’s a thing of amazing, demented beauty which Ellison felt deserved to be heard again and reassessed.”

As for Oizo himself, a successful film-maker as well as a musician, what does he make of it? “I think 76% of this record is very inspired,” he explains. “The rest is terrible and not really interesting.” He pauses and thinks this through “But hey, 76% is a good score.”
