3 stars out of 4
This disc missed the aim it was made for, i.e. a joke intended to become
the Christmas single of 1999... but it appeared in the UK charts anyway,
and sounds like another funny delirium with "KLF" stamped on it.
One of the names under the pompous alias of "Solid Gold Chartbusters" is
Jimmy Cauty of KLF fame. The whole song is pure novelty from the beginning
to the end, being based (er) on an infamous cellular phone sound, the one
you hear everywhere these days (even featured in a Sky One commercial),
silly choruses and voices of people talking on he phone.
The female choruses singing the most stupid chorus of this and the next
millennium ("I wanna 1-2-1 with you" repeated to death) remind me of
(obscure and almost unheard) early KLF products that came out in late 80s
under the name "Disco 2000" (hm. I am writing this review in the year 2000.
Coincidence? Were the KLF that ahead of our time? Nah, actually this chorus
sounds very retro and more Stock-Aitken-Waterman in 1987 than JAMS/KLF in
Anyway: it is a funny joke, it is well done, it has an hilarious video on
the cd-rom track, plus as a bonus you get this weird, dark hardcore
techno/industrial/noisy/spoken filler called (sic) "Philler #004".
