"A quirky and off the wall performance"

Polly Scattergood/Parralox/Daniel Robinson

Road Trip Bar, London - 7 February 2014
"A quirky and off the wall performance"

This tiny venue near Old Street was host to an evening of interesting music (courtesy of EQ Music Live), unfortunately work meant I could not get to the venue in time to see the first two acts, but I was in time to see Daniel Robinson, who looked like a Hipster Justin Bieber and whose music was well crafted and very danceable, but its hard for me to comment as it was not my kind of music, but those around me seemed to enjoy it. 5/10



Next up were Parralox – which boded well from the start as they had a Sequential Circuits Pro-One synthesizer on stage. The band arrived on stage all dressed in black and looking very Gothic, so I was expecting something dark and gloomy. I was happily surprised that what I heard was excellent synthpop and the vocals, from new vocalist Johanna, were excellent. To be honest, the music was very europop/nu-disco and none the worse for that. Towards the end of the set they were joined on stage by Francine, who had performed earlier in the evening, and this changed the style and sound of the group, but I think I preferred Johanna’s vocals. I have to say I very much enjoyed the performance. 7/10

Adem’s Top 50 Albums of 2013



Australian based blog "Schizophonic" have just announced their Top 50 Albums of 2013, compiled by Adem. We are thrilled to announce that the list includes not one, but two projects by John von Ahlen!

Here are the highlights :


13. Parralox “RECOVERY”
Not usually one for cover albums (however, there is still one more of those yet to appear in this countdown), in 2013 Australia’s own Parralox proved that a covers collection wasn’t something that had to be boring. Their exquisite take on Parson’s “Eye In The Sky” is as wonderful as their covers of Madonna’s “Physical Attraction” and ABBA’s “The Day Before You Came”. Nonetheless it’s Front 242′s “Headhunter” which takes the cake as the best cover here, banging away in just over six minutes of dance-floor perfection that stands as an even bigger track than the 1988 original. Parralox have always been a massive favourite of mine and this could be their finest produced record to date. With a new vocalist set to join the group for 2014 and original releases planned in the foreseeable future, there’s no doubt in my mind this next album will exceed all expectations.
KEY TRACKS: “Headhunter”, “Physical Attraction”, “Eye In The Sky”.


24. The Sound Of The Crowd “LIFE IS CALLING”
This pure electro side-project from Parralox genius and Melbourne’s very own John von Ahlen, under the guise of The Sound of the Crowd, is a rather astonishing debut. There’s a Stock/Aitken/Waterman throwback on the icy “Companion”, which sounds like it could have slotted onto the end of Mel & Kim’s first album F.L.M. quite comfortably, yet as a whole the record is a lot more underground than what we’ve come to expect from Parralox. Keep an ear out for Nic Toupee, an absolute living legend who is also one of my all-time favourite Melbourne DJs, who lends vocals to the big finale “Conclusion”, which is my choice-cut selection from Life Is Calling.

KEY TRACKS: “Conclusion”, “Wildlife”, “Companion”.
