Kaos Hello Stranger
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: !K7
Play DJ Kaos‘ leftfield disco LP Hello Stranger in its entirety and watch what happens to your party. The Berliner first indulges in Italo-house with ladykiller-soon-to-be-wife-beater vocals, before an agitfunk band leads a horde inside to drink all of the free booze. His obligatory cowbells and placement of bold quotation marks upon the lyrics (as heard in "Boogie Boy") are on the DFA tip, but self-awareness is moot here-even the half-arsed Frankie "Double Dutch Bus" Smith impression in the ‘86 computer expo funk tune "Juices (Raw and Dirty)" brims with pride. The closer, "Bunny Brown," finds an organ assuring a droning bass guitar that everything will be fine in heaven-a benign blues for the afterife‘s casualties.
