'· .'. / ' ' Muturama: so FUTURAMA -- Be-Bop Deluxe, ST-11432 (Harceit, dittributed by Capitol Record*). This is a difficult group to categorize. Be-Bop Deluxe does not play be-bop music. It plays rock music -- very fine rock music -- is an inadequate description, as inadequate as saying David Bowie sings rock music. It's true, but.. .. There is much similarity between this group and Bowie, in. fact', afld while it would be fair to neither, to say one is like the other, it can give an idea what, to expect. Disc-cussion Be-Bop's music is sophisticated rock; the lyrics do not deal with ordinary topics; the production is excellent, and if you like what it is · they're doing, you'll recognize how good they are at it..-" · Bill Nelson's vocals,have.,a Bowie-like inflection (especially on -"Swan Song," the album's best cut) and his piano work on that song and elsewhere is excellent. Charles Tumahai'si bass work is exciting and the drumbeat provided by Simon Fox is steady and sure. There is a little of Roxy Music in this group, too, a kind of tampering with the expected. Be-Bop Deluxe is a derivitive band. It has taken fine aspects of some of the best and.most unusually creative performers and synthesized them into one. It has done an excellent job. "Futurama" may be the sound of rock to come, and if it is, we're in for some interesting music. . . . (JIO WE AIM TO PLEASE YOU!
