Episode 362

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 362

This episode featured The Dream Machine by Sukia a record I haven't played in years. The Dream Machine is taken from Sukia's one and only album, 1996's Contacto Especial con el Tercer Sexo. This was one of my favourite records of the 90s, it still sounds brilliant, completely fresh, and totally nuts. The record was produced by The Dust Brothers and the late Jerry Finn and released on The Dust Brothers' Nickel Bag label in the US and on Mo Wax Records in Europe. My vinyl copy of the album came with an extra 12'' of remixes of The Dream Machine. Sukia, who took their name from an Italian satanic vampire paranormal porno comic book, were from California and combined Moog-driven grooves, analogue synths, toy keyboards, found samples and space-age pop aesthetics to create a darkly humourous album that is definately a lost classic.
