Melt yourself down are one of those mythically conceived super groups, even though they are more of a collective then a bog standard super band. featuring various members from the UK’s illustrious psychedelic Jazz scene, including Pete Wareham of Acoustic Ladyland / Polar Bear and Zun Zun Egui front man Kushal Gaya.
Fix My Life is basically the sonic equivalent of a carnival as it is highly trippy with horns playing over folding acid tinged melodies, the sax sounds like as if it has been used to bring a melodic afro beats sleaze, each and every synthesized jerk burns through like a heady sonic tab of acid as the rhythm and melody bounce together backwards and forwards.
It has all the hallmarks of acid jazz funk fussion Sunra brought to the table in the 70’s along with the likes of a latter-day Miles Davis. The Sunra Comparison probably comes from the bands symbolistic and repetitive vocal phrasing by Kushal Gaya that crop up towards the end. you can imagine the likes of Dj Shadow digging up prime cuts of this for Entroducing era albums or that Andy Votel would quite happily mix this into one of his All Back To Mine mixes.
Along with the video which feels like you are about to be abducted by the Twilight Zone with its constant flashing mind warping images, i cant personally watch it all the way through because it gets quite intense, its near constant fast flashes just do stuff to my brain that leaves it flopping like scrambled eggs with my eyes wired in a trance like state. Which ultimately make me think that Fix My Life sounds like the party that time forgot.
