Fluke - Progressive History X (2001) Retail CD
This Progressive History X retrospective has been prompted by the use of a 1997 Fluke tune for the opening credits of Tomb Raider. Active throughout most of the 1990s, the trio set out to merge house, rock and electro-funk, pioneering chemical beats, as well as being early champions of a return to 1980s values. They continued the lineage started by Yello, and were surely instrumental in spawning the Propellerheads. Fluke released their debut single, "Thumper", back in 1989, here opening what appears to be a chronological sequence. It's a deliberately cheesy stomp, marshalled synth oscillationsmore… overlaid with flute trills and brass bursts, shouts and whispers exchanged by male and female vocalists. Heard all together, in a decade's rush, this turns out to be fairly typical of Fluke's future direction, always working around intense tribal beats, mincing fragmented guitar riffs into the sequenced texture, giving prominence to their darkly comic chanting, intoning repetitive phrases in a sinister vein. They reach their most deranged pitch during the heavy-duty warping of "Atom Bomb", or maybe "Bubble", with its almost-Afro pulse, flooded with garbled, drooling gabbles. --Martin Longley
