David Sylvian & Holger Czukay - Plight and Premonition (1988) Retail CD
When a CD/Album has only two tracks on it, one of which is over 18 minutes long and the other is over 16 minutes long, you know you are in for something interesting. Equally when you see that the first "instrument" listed as being played by Holger Czukay is a Radio you would be right in presuming that you are likely to hear something on the verges of the avant garde. And you would, of course, be right to think that! This is the first of two collaberations between "the most beautiful man in pop" of the late seventies/early eighties and Japan lead singer (David Sylvian) and former Stockhausen pupilmore… and German experimental art band Can member(Holger Czukay)-their second collaberation being Flux + Mutability a year later. David Sylvian fans are more likely to buy this album to complete their set, although curious to hear what he is up to, than to rate this among their favourites. It is music to space out to. Music that requires you to lie on your bed or sofa, possible wearing headphones, and chill out to, letting to tones and colours of the music wash over you. It is very relaxing to listen to it this way. I usually fall asleep half way through the second track! I think that Holger Czukay fans will also view this as a slight departure from his more serious music intentions. It is an ambient and moody affair along the lines of an eerie movie soundtrack (which would no doubt star Dennis Hopper in it somewhere!) and although not an album for everyone it does have its place in any ambient music collection.
