Muzak Superior  



Intro was the name of a short lived project fronted by underground(ish) new wavey electro singer Jacqui Brookes. For this post I was going to use a picture of an old boom box with a guy dressed as a robot octopus breakdancing around it, as is standard around here, but I looked Jacqui up on google and found this press shot of her and decided it was way better than a body popping octopus.

This is the dub of their single Lost Without Your Love, I found it in a box over the weekend.

    Is this the same Jaqui as Jaqui and the Rumor?

    Can we still see the octopus?

    Great to see an Intro track posted here - there isn't enough disco/funk and synth/post-punk crossover for my liking and this mix is one of the best examples of that "third space" at the risk of sounding like a post-modern wanker.

    It's perfect the way that slap-happy Level 42 bass gives way to teutonic style beat discipline and industrial barking vox and those synth melodies are to die for.

    For anyone interested in hearing the both the EPs, those nice people at SystemofRomance posted them:

    You can hear her solo album here:

    Given her musical background and being based in the UK. I very much doubt she is the Jaqui of Jaqui and the Rumor as the above comment asks - of course I could be wrong and often am.
