Wevie Stonder - The Bucket

Wevie Stonder - The Bucket
(CD) Cack Records, 2009-04-01

Absurdist electronic provocateurs Wevie Stonder pride themselves on their well-honed "Cack" aesthetic. So, with gleeful wrongness, they launch their fourth album, The Bucket with an absurd offer: be among the first 100 downloaders on April the 1st, and they'll pay you a pound. Pitching their unique take on consumer economics from the car boot of their own label Cack records, they've cranked up a brimming pail of their irresistibly wonky sonic surrealism from the wells of the collective unconscious. While their stint on Skam records and a side project on Mouse on Mars's Sonig label have seen them filed alongside whimsical leftfield electronica, Wevie take things deeper and weirder, plundering the anarchic traditions of inspired lunacy from The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band to Zappa.

Press Release :
Absurdist electronic provocateurs Wevie Stonder pride themselves on their well-honed "Cack" aesthetic. So, with gleeful wrongness, they launch their fourth album, The Bucket with an absurd offer: be among the first 100 downloaders on April the 1st, and they'll pay you a pound. Pitching their unique take on consumer economics from the car boot of their own label Cack records, they've cranked up a brimming pail of their irresistibly wonky sonic surrealism from the wells of the collective unconscious. While their stint on Skam records and a side project on Mouse on Mars's Sonig label have seen them filed alongside whimsical leftfield electronica, Wevie take things deeper and weirder, plundering the anarchic traditions of inspired lunacy from The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band to Zappa.

The Bucket teems with ideas, garish chunks of musical kitsch and bizarre takes on musical clichés, strapped together with elastic and string and backed by toy pianos, broken trombones and rubber bands. Into these chaotic soundscapes Wevie Stonder unleash their demented talent for surreal comic invention. Bizarre characters, ludicrous situations, and streams of free-association collide, only to bounce off on a tangent just before you've had a chance to work them out. 'This is exactly the kind of underground, leftfield business that keeps me alive in times of pop shite overload' - Rob Da Bank BBC Radio 1. However you describe it, if you listen closely you can hear Wevie moving in new directions, creating a sound and style that is entirely their own.

The latest Analog Africa reissue is up for pre-order on Bandcamp! The album, originally a 1978 release by Orchestre Poly Rythmo's singer Vincent Ahehehinnou, is rare-as-shit, worth nearly 4 figures if you can find a decent copy. There's only 4 tunes, two afrofunk monsters and two ballads, but...
