Pretty topical eh? What with Carrey going mad all over the screen because of these digits. He should have skipped the puzzle, laid down on a comfy beanbag and listened to Blonde Redhead’s take on the numerics. And who better to untangle them than a trio (formerly a quartet) who met in a diner in NYC and decided they wanted to write music together and be called after a song by a band (DNA) who wrote another one about a man called Tom who owned a diner (gasp). The most common appraisal of Blonde Redhead is that they sound like early Sonic Youth but on ‘23’ they sound more like Mahogany as much for the fiery shoegazisms as for the deliciously discordant melodies. Imagine, BR have been around since 1993, we could be talking Pulp like successes here if ’23’ has its wicked little way.KD
