VA – You Can Trust A Man With A Moustache Vol. 4 [MST048]


Moustache Records’ occasional series of multi-artist EPs, You Can Trust a Man With a Moustache, finally reaches its fourth instalment, some 13 years after volume one landed in stories. The formula remains the same: think muscular, throbbing and wildly camp fusions of High-NRG, Italo-disco and turn-of-the-80s European electro-disco. This is arguably best exemplified via the throbbing, Bobby Orlando-meets-Giorgio Moroder thrust of John Noseda’s ‘Climax’, which fittingly builds to a breathless conclusion as the track progresses. Elsewhere, Perdu brilliantly doffs a cap to Pet Shop Boys’ chart-topper ‘Heart’ on ‘Mind Phrases’ (we think Chris Lowe would approve), while there’s a similar mid-80s PSB feel about the shiny chords, throbbing sequenced bass and memorable lead lines of Kendal’s ‘Mort Sur La Dancefloor’.
