Album Review

Designer Music – “Good Girls ” – [Planet E Communications]

Thurston Hunger   2/13/2006   12-inch, A Library

Re-issue from Carl Craig as Designer Music. Single-sided
stomper with hiccoughs…when it separates out it sounds
like a very swinging section of a marching band’s percussion
unit. Actually the web says it’s a reworking of “Give It Up”
from the GoodMEN. Ha? But then it turns out that track was
actually built on a sample of some Brazilian batucada. So
now I’m thinking a marching band…with only feathers for
their loins?’ It goes through a lot of earmuff tunnels, at
the end an electronic asthmatic attack wheezes in for a bit,
the Good Girls get stuck and almost die twice before a slow
fade ride to the center groove. You can start hearing voices
when you listen to the tweaked beaks, I could have sworn I
heard “Let Me Get the Handwipes” for a while… Originally
released in 1993…probably slapped a lot of woofers out of
the floorboards of Camaros. Play the side with music for
best results. Drums major. -Thurston Hunger
