Mr Oizo - Moustache (Half A Scissor) - vinyl edition out on Brainfeeder



Mr Oizo Moustache
Mr Oizo - Moustache (Half A Scissor)
(2xLP) Brainfeeder BF012, 2010-12-13

2005 album released by Mute Records in the US, finally available on vinyl thanks to Brainfeeder... Five years after the 2000 debut album of Mr Oizo, Analog Worms Attack, featuring a tune featured in an advert featuring a lemon-coloured creature who drives a car and bobs his cute ol' head Mr Oizo returned with his second album, Moustache (Half A Scissor). Quentin Dupieux, who allegedly got his first recording deal after his dad sold Laurent Garnier a car, had spent the intervening period throwing out all his analog gear and learning to chop, programme and explode beats and music on computers. The result was an album of such aggressively funny and brilliant programming that most of the millions of people who had got into the yellow thing ran around screaming and bumping into each other until they cried and fell over.

Press Release :
I know, I know, I know. You don't have to say it. He's there, too, in my head, that little yellow fuck. Put him to bed, put him away, lock him in a box and throw the box into the Grand Canyon. Don't mention the muppet.

Five years after the 2000 debut album of Mr Oizo, "Analog Worms Attack," featuring a tune featured in an advert featuring a lemon-coloured creature who drives a car and bobs his cute ol' head Mr Oizo returned with his second album, "Moustache (Half A Scissor)". Quentin Dupieux, who allegedly got his first recording deal after his dad sold Laurent Garnier a car, had spent the intervening period throwing out all his analog gear and learning to chop, programme and explode beats and music on computers. The result was an album of such aggressively funny and brilliant programming that most of the millions of people who had got into the yellow thing ran around screaming and bumping into each other until they cried and fell over.

It was heard, though, by aficionados including a young man in LA by the name of Steve Ellison. Steve is now better known as Flying Lotus and his label, Brainfeeder is re-releasing "Moustache" in an edition of 1000 vinyl copies. It's a thing of amazing, demented beauty which Ellison felt deserved to be heard again and reassessed. "The original label that put it out thought it was unlistenable at the time, they didn't quite believe in it, but it was way ahead of its time. It's an honour for Brainfeeder to re-release this record, it's one of the most inspiring electronic records ever made."

As for Dupieux himself, a successful film-maker as well as a musician, what does he make of it? "I think 76% of this record is very inspired," he explains. "The rest is terrible and not really interesting." He pauses and thinks this through "But hey, 76% is a good score."
