Mockey In Mesopotamia (J.D. Slazenger's edition)
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: Gomma
Before they ran away to start their own dirty electro circus in Berlin, Peaches and Chilly Gonzales were in a punk band called The Shit, of which Dominic Salole, a.k.a. Mocky, was the drummer. Now an ex-pat in Holland, Mocky, too, makes freaky lo-fi 'lectro kitsch on In Mesopotamia, but it's the added hip-hop value that sets him apart. His Snoop-style MCing is notably pimp on the more straightforward beats of single "Sweet Music." Elsewhere, Mocky's abstract initiatives juxtapose spastic samples with mellow bourgeois ballads. As he raps on "Munky 'C' Munky Do," it's somewhat "...like Neanderthals breedin' with Europeans.
