Release Info: NIMAL-DIS TANZ, CD, 1991, VARIOUS
Following my post of this multinational R.I.O. unit's second album "Voix De Surface", here's their gorgeous swan song form the following year, the line-up here narrowing down to a three piece of Bratko Bibic of Begnagrad, Momo Roussel of Switzerland's inimitable Debile Menthol and Pippin Barnett (Orthotonics, No Safety etc) who was a principal mover on the 80's/90's Downtown NY scene. The jubilantly cockeyed strain of R.I.O. at hand here folds together folkloric elements and art rock eccentricity in a manner first mapped by Fred Frith circa Gravity and Speechless. It's a faultless template that still holds sway with contempo R.I.O. merchants like Alamaailman Vasarat and Daau and it's masterfully articulated here. Thanks to an anonymous blog friend for this treasure!
