i thought they were a mike flowers novelty act or something until i heard their remix of air, and liked it, and couldn't figure out if it was ok to like etc. that was many years ago. but anyway.

I hung out with Brian Kehew a few times in London a while back, and got the impression that both him and Roger kind of looked at it like a novelty act...they were both involved in other things (both toured with Air, Roger played with Beck, Brian produces and writes), in a non-serious sense I think they did some creative reworkings (Brian also said that he recieved positive comments from a lot of the people they covered such as Bowie and Grohl)

the air remix is fire, but also novelty, kind of uber-70s funk thing.

Their live show was immensely entertaining. They played in the spacesuits and had a variety of props based on the songs. like a robotic cat for "Cat Scratch Fever." They often embellished the tunes with little moog samples from other songs, a fun spot-the-reference exercise.

Classic! I love the version of "More Than a Feeling" on the second album!

four years pass...

Most of the time I think of these guys as a cover band who are still so silly that I get mad lols even though they're instrumentals. But their version of "Even Flow" has been kicking my ass for a while now – it sounds like something to exercise to in a too-bright fluorescent hallway, against your will!

A couple of great remixes they did: Kelly Watch the Stars by Air and "Time" by Alex Gopher. I guess these both are on the compilation disc of remixes that came out? Their best stuff was remixes I think.

I had the Logan's Sanctuary disc for a while and it was cool but I traded it in for some reason. Probably not a good listen more than two or three times because it's a bit too concepty?
