Album Notes
"....They play and sample the gnawa, the vocal and percussion trance music of Morocco, but then throw away all regard for authenticity or tradition as they dice and slice the music through an international Veg-o-matic. This is a garage version of Khaled, both more acoustic on one handand more digital on the other. It jolts the senses and rebels against the intellect. It is another wonderfully conceived diversion.." Cliff Furnald - Dirty Linen (no.45)
".... More freaky than funky, these Casablancan ravers weld Moorish guitars to quasi-techno/industrial beats for a Rai meets Eurodisco feel, as if Depeche Mode were rocking the casbah. When sampler-dissected, chantlike snipets of Arabic float about the mix to superb effect.." Paper - Feb.1993
"....The creeping westernization which has scared other musical forces falls flat on its face when confronted with traditions so alien... A rewarding album on more levels than one can enumerate (not least of all being the harsh light it sheds on certain Anglo-American pretensions), Revolt Against Reason is also an astonishing album, by western standards at least. If you really want to discover World Music, start here.."Dave Thompson - Alternative Press
