Album: Filthy Dukes, Nonsense in the Dark (Fiction)
Sunday 15 March 2009
The one fact that Filthy Dukes are making damn sure everyone knows is that
Nonsense in the Dark was recorded on a desk once owned by Kraftwerk producer Conny Plank.
Fortunately there's more to them than that. What the London trio have done, with an array of nobodies and the occasional somebody on vocals, is create an album of metropolitan electro pop which is remorseless, relentless and contagiously exuberant. It's what Daft Punk's third album should have sounded like.
Pick of the Album: Not so secret agent: 'Don't Fall Softly'
