The Limehouse Link
With its debut album, The Limehouse Link , British duo Mucho Macho offers yet another bland, bandwagon-sodomizing big beat record to the smoldering trend-heap. Lacking the smarmy, well-boozed charm of the Lo-Fidelity Allstars (the big beat band), Mucho Macho merely treads water in a sea of anonymity, barely knowing how to swim, desperately hoping the beachside onlookers don’t wish drowning upon it. When are the Brits going to learn that Americans of discriminating taste only want another Gang of Four? Good for kicking beats, but not for kicking ass — both of which many Ink Nineteen readers are quite fond of. Or so I’ve heard.
