We Need No Swords review:

"Language is a nuisance / Dishonest and vulgar… ”intones Dale Cornish on Two Warhol's Worth, his and Julian's cassette on Tapeworm,“… Never quite getting it… right. ”. But it's this slippage and ambiguity that give Cornish's vocal cut up rambles their ambiguous energy and deadpan humor on this set. Although an established electronic musician in his own right, save a few bits of'additional music' on a couple of tracks, he sticks to an MES-meets-Adam Bohman vocal collage here, as Julian manipulates a variety of tangy electronic tones underneath.

The collaboration was sparked into life when Kevin Drumm gifted a Hewlett-Packard test tone generator to Julian (to avoid excess baggage charges apparently). I'm not sure whether Julian uses this exclusively, but he sure rustles up a bracing range of settings for Cornish's poem fragments. Each To His Own has a lovely deep space vibe, its staccato kick drum bursts strafing the echoing drones like radio waves across the cosmos.

For me, Personify A is a highlight, Cornish's “I'm working on me / I'm working too hard / I'm plotting a path / A career path / I've joined a gym” recalibrating The Fall's Eat Y'Self Fitter for the low-pay long-hours 21st century.

His utterances compete with Julian's ear-splitting flutters, which sound like he is piloting a giant moth around the studio. At one point Cornish breaks into probably the worst approximation of the Hilliard Ensemble I've ever heard as he quotes Arvo Part. It's bonkers and brilliant. "
