Psychic Eye Clix – Serious Idiots (Double Edge Scissor)

Published on March 5th, 2012

I like the name Psychic Eye Clix. It’s sort of funny for a little while because it’s like a tongue twister. “Serious Idiots” is also like a joke because it’s sort of an oxymoron. So this is obviously a comedy act. That’s a relief because I hate doing bad reviews and this had bad review written all over it. So I’m reviewing this as a comedy record.

First track is nonsensical dubstep with an industrial / drum’n’bass slant, littered with clips from that interview where John Lydon was being a prick in the 70’s.Well that’s quite funny I suppose. Second track is an ADHD dubstep mix of “Feral” by Radiohead. I don’t personally find it funny but I’m sure Thom would as he likes dubstep and messing about with remixes. The third track has me foxed because I can’t see anything funny about it but it’s on a comedy record so there must be something funny about a dubstep remix of “Let England Shake” that I’m not spotting. I wonder what it is.  Last up is a mangled version of some kind of progressive metal.

I estimate that this EP was produced in under an hour using Ableton, Reaktor and some kind of generic dubstep soundkit. I estimate that Double Edge Scissor and Psychic Eye Clix will not be happy with this review. I estimate that if you are able to concentrate for longer than three seconds that you will be appalled by this juddering mess and should avoid it conscientiously.

    kind of agree with most of your review except the pj harvey bit, the dubstep version is at least 10 times better than its utterly dull pjh original!

    Are you agreeing with me ? I can’t get people I know to agree with me but you will. Thats weird. The bit I forgot to add to this review is that its like a cross between Jez from Peep Show’s “music” and what Nathan Barley rides his tiny bike round to.

    I dont give a monkeys about PJ Harvey. Haven’t since Rid of Me / Demos. Her voice sounds like a klanger iside a helium ballon cutting glass nowadays. And Let England Shake is a dirge.
