Norwegian Dadaist Joek Friiss 1927 classic is here again at last, brought back to life for the general public courtesy of Taped Rugs Productions. Similar in style to the Dadaist/Surrealist films of Hans Richter and Viking Eggeling, Sukkeret Og Pepper (Sugar And Pepper) overlays seemingly disjointed vignettes, smudges, and situations, repeating themes and discarding logic in a bewildering cavalcade of imagery.
Avant Garde recording artist Charles Goff III lends a modern interpretation to Friiss original score, incorporating a wide variety of sounds as well as several Scandanavian voices into the mix.

"Essentially a double a side, 'Physical Energy' / 'Drive' is a slice of wistful and angry melancholia, driven by hard pianos and unrelenting synth bass, though not without a sense of humour to boot. rakish, distorted vocals teamed up with glorious harmonies make this a little gem of a record that must only be played loud and preferably with tons of eyeliner on. think the cure and bowie after a heavy night and a punch up..."

"On constant rotation on the stereo since it was dropped in 3 hours ago - ones to watch in 2007" (Rough Trade)
"Something brand new, something we really really like.. something we've been dying to play you" (Zane Lowe, Radio One)
"Bewitchingly catchy at their best, Archangel take the very essence of a balmy summer afternoon and instil it through some jumpy indie rock curves that are impossible to dodge. Never in your face, the songs allure is purely charm based, and one you wont want to resist" A Subba-Cultcha.com SINGLE OF THE MONTH "An exceptionally good cake!!!"
"Despite the stuttering pace of 'Physical Energy', with its timely handclaps and short beats, this is deceptively languid. The repetition of the synth gives the lull of chill, but it's without a doubt clear that Archangel are influenced by something far more gritty and dystopian. A band to keep a beady eye on." Disorder Magazine
"The second release from London based Archangel sees the art indie upstarts take on the mantle of early Cure and 80's Bowie. With dark undertones and mournful harmonies, the band are touching the darkest sinews that many bands willingly avoid. The song relies on a menacing keyboard bassline and juddering drums that sit on the precipice of violence without peering too far over the edge. There's a melancholic fear that shows itself in the melody, but this is not to be mistaken for sounding depressing. Far from it - the song is of the sort that would appear in an indie club as the night is wearing on and needs an injection of energy" Click Music
