Synopsis

Amazon.com
Slicker is the brainchild and alter ego of John Hughes III, son of the famous filmmaker John Hughes. Hughes has previously contributed to Chicago's postrock music scene as the leader of Bill Ding, an arty bunch of musicians who released two interesting CDs before calling it a day. With Slicker, Hughes's newfound penchant for the skittering rhythms of alternative electronica is ambitiously fulfilled. Incorporating elements of drum & bass into his disjointed discourse, Hughes and his sidemen find common ground between instrumental rock ensembles like Tortoise and German synthesizer mavens such as Mouse on Mars. Using guitars, bass, vibes, and cello to flesh out his electronic art form, Hughes reveals authentic compositional skill and a sonic vision that is both distinctive and entertaining. Progressive music with a good sense of humor. --Mitch Myers
 

CD Reviews

This music is insane
W. French | Carnation, WA USA | 02/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This record is freaky. It's quite unlike any other electro out there. If you're into strange beats, unusual samples (including a really scary dog growling in stereo), then buy this record. If you enjoy such artists as Aphex Twin, Mu-Ziq, Squarepusher, etc., you should check this out. Or if you're just into weird new things, this is for you."
