Long since a staple of Beak>’s inimitably immaculate live show, trepidatious listener meet Kenn; Kenn meet trepidatious listener. Now featured as the flipside to recent single Mono, it here becomes accessible even to the less obsessive Invada enthusiast. The prime disparity I’ve always found to be intrinsic when comparing the LPs and live shows of the trio also comprising label honcho Geoff Barrow and Fairhorns’ Matt Loveridge concerns bassist Billy Fuller’s central involvement. Yes, his bulbous lines tinge the records with their dub undercurrent though it’s only really live, and now with this one that his four strings come an overpowering one. As though the leaden silver lining to an already impenetrable cloud of Kraut frenzy, Kenn’s a keeper and one that, for the truly meagre price of ATP (sorry – 80p) can be acquired eternally as of here.
