Timothy J Fairplay – No News From New York [WFL001]


Glasgow has a new label on the horizon in the shape of Work For Love who kick off proceedings with a fine 12″ from Mr Timothy J Fairplay. Given his previous form and the title of this 12″, it’s easy to suggest the influence of John Carpenter looms over No News From New York, but there are more strings to Fairplay’s bow than that as the four tracks prove. There is a range of tempos explored here, with “Carla Is Typing A Message” a deathly crawl through delay-laden synth drama, whilst “Court Street Shuffle” is a life-affirming box jam that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Legowelt record. Those melodies! “Mickey’s Theme” is more redolent of Fairplay’s celebrated work with Sir Weatherall, whilst the title track is the slowest production here and is quite captivating.
