Comment: recently we all got the sad announce that Mark E. Smith passed away. The true old-school (post-)punk leviathan who had been the synonym of stubbornness in music for the four decades. MES and The Fall had influenced an innumerable amount of artists including The Hirundu, and Johnny Crewdson behind it. I could say The Hirundu shows up the quality by blending together old and new tendencies and similarly to MES Johnny Crewdson fights against the stupidity and evil threads of the human race by employing incisive irony. What else could be the best weapon but irony and sarcastic approach? Similarly to The Fall it could be admitted about the music of The Hirundu it's always different, it's always the same. It does mean the scope of the sonic phenomena must be stylistically wide enough to drift freely within the borders. From uncanny piano music and energetic electro pop to guitar twangs filled with slight instability to more or less heavily twisted electronic music to mutant world music, and frequently pulling some elements out from one track to transfer them to another. However, I have never heard Crewdson of singing folk songs (it happens in one song though). He seems to reinvent himself with any brand new one. At Neeto The Wonder Wig Part II you can hear a zombie singing a lullaby to you. It's so cute, isn't it? In a word, Johnny did it again. Thereafter I recommend listen to The Fall's Perverted By Language (1983).
