Performance! is one of those records where germs of act upon can be traced through many genres and countless bands, both favorably and unfavorably.

From groups whose awareness of genealogy spreads to the utmost enough to candidly allow Team of Four«s act upon (Fugazi, Blow A Gasket Against the Instrument), to those not in impassion with their ancestry enough to effect it (rap-metal, some indie jar) -- all have appropriated elements of their forefathers» trailblazing contribution. Its hazily funky regular twitch, its sour, pointillistic guitar stoccados, and its spoken/shouted vocals have all been picked up by many. Lyrically, the album was apart from many of the day, and it still is.

The federate rants at revisionist adventures in «Not Incomparable Men» («No feckless men in the books at home»), self-serving media and politicians in «I Set Up That Concentrate Rare» («The last fixation they«ll ever do?/Act in your interest»), and carnal statesmanship in «Damaged Goods» («You said you»re shoddy but you're too much»). Though the sharpness of the register thrives on the faster statistics -- especially the febrile first side -- a firm highlight amongst highlights is the closing «Anthrax,» gorged of hardly controlled feedback squalls and moans.

It«s nearly psychedelic, something stick-poor and new white horse were never known for. With a slender end unnerve and plodding bass rumble, Jon Majesty equates honey with sickness and admits to atmosphere «like a beetle on its back.» In the unseen, Andy Gill speaks in monotone of why Team of Four doesn»t do honey songs.

Insurrectionary records of any ilk don't get any stronger, efficacious, or inspiring than this. (AMG)
