Billy Mackenzie's death brought out the usual obituaries of what a waste he made of the obvious talent he had and how erratic his recorded work had been. This collaboration between ex-Josef K vocalist, Paul Haig and Mackenzie reveals once again what an enigma this man was. Recorded 'in sporadic bursts' between 1993 and 1995, this compilation of previously unreleased work performed when both artists were between labels, the production is understandably low-budget. Surprisingly the once ecstatic vocals Mackenzie used to produce appear to be muted on many of tracks on offer here. More surprising still is that when the vocals are lead by Haig with his fellow Scotsman providing high-pitched sighs, the results are more impressive as anyone who cocks an ear to the tunes of 'Take A Chance' and 'Listen To Me' will testify. As for the rest only the cheap and nasty disco sound on 'Listen Again' annoys but the strong mid-section of 'Beyond Love', 'Transobsession' and 'Trash 3' provide understated glamour. Just don't expect a repeat of The Associates' 'This Party Fears Two'.
