    SMASH is Parisian Jackson Fourgeaud's debut as Jackson & His Computer Band. The "computer band" in question is quite possibly nothing more than a battery of tourettic sampling beatboxes, and as the title suggests, Jackson seems hell-bent on demolishing simple categorizations of genre and stylistic hegemony. All manner of sonic fodder provides grist for the mill, from opera vocals and circus music to arena rock; all of it gets pulverized into layers of cascading sound and rhythm. Majestic in its scope and uncompromising in its intensity, SMASH will have the genre purists ducking for cover.

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "SMASH is Daft Punk circa DISCOVERY on an all-night bender with Aphex Twin and T.Rex."
    The Wire (p.58) - "Just as the record is chock full of nervous cut-ups, so it is home to some exquisite sonic candy."
    The Wire (p.41) - Included in The Wire's "2005 Rewind: 50 Records Of The Year."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The French laptop cavalier dices and splices what sounds like hundreds of sonic fragments into a constantly shifting montage..."
