Listening to Moses And The Burning Bush can be a disquietening experience. This is raw music, intense and stripped bare for everyone to see its wounds. The reason for the primal noise is not surprising given that there is only one musician performing on this record, for it is Paul R alone who lends his voice, guitars and drum machine to an impressively intense first EP.
Crisp drum machine, brittle guitar and sneering vocals characterise opener 'The Light Of The City' and this formula is repeated throughout. Granted, Paul R's vocals do lack variation (and the discordant 'Hubert Humphrey' is just a bit too ugly to listen to) but the music itself is surprisingly inventive; for example, the almost playful tune at the heart of 'I Want This To End' whilst 'Honey' chugs along on a rhythm akin to Joy Division's 'Transmission'. Similar in sound and spirit to early 80s artist Minimal Man, it would be interesting to see how many more possibilities Mr. R. can produce from the basic instruments at his disposal
