9 - Bourbonese Qualk - Temporale
Bourbonese Qualk has undergone many band member changes since 1983, but Simon Crab was always part of the hard core. With Steven Tanza and Julian Gilbert he made the LPs 'Laughing Afternoon', 'Hope', 'Preparing For Power' and 'The Spike'. After first Gilbert and then Tanza had left the band, Crab got help from Miles Miles and Owen Rossiter. Especially on 'My Government Is My Soul' and 'Unpop' it becomes clear that this doesn't affect the sound of Bourbonese Qualk. But Miles as well as Rossiter (now a drummer with Stereo MC's) left eventually and after an excursion into techno ('Autonomia'), Crab fully returns with his latest CD 'On Uncertainty', on which the characteristic Bourbonese Qualk sound, which defies description, can be heard. 'Temporale' is the striking end tune of X-Rated.
Essential: 'Unpop', 'On Uncertainty'
