Apollo 440 - Dude Descending A Staircase (2003) Retail CD
Apollo 440's fourth studio album, Dude Descending a Staircase, is their most retro album yet. Taking its name from a neo-psycadelic painting by Ausgang, its acid funk influences couldn't be more apparent if they had a photo of George Clinton on the cover. The title track and lead single is a collaboration with the Beatnuts on vocal duties over a melee of piano loops, squelchy 303s and a guitar that sounds like Carlos Santana's. It sounds like it should be a mess but is held together by the band's incredibly slick production skills, which have improved greatly over the years. "Hustler Groove"more… featuring Lightnin' Rod is a homage to the pioneering Hustler's Convention by Rod featuring Kool & the Gang, but aside from the classic vocal, it sounds remarkably similar to the aforementioned title track and indeed most other songs on the album. Dude Descending a Staircase has all the key elements that have pleased fans since the mid-1990s. However, rather than develop their big beat style into something exciting and different, like the Lo fidelity Allstars they have produced a sanitised variation of their former self that is at best an exercise in nostalgia, at worst a support for that wonky leg on the coffee table. --David Trueman
