2 stars Having recorded an innovative album that drew on Inuit culture and which conjured up images of arcane rituals carried out in an icy, windswept landscape, the obvious thing to do was a 12" disco remix, and Diskomo was the result. As amusing as the idea is, the novelty actually wears off pretty quickly, although the Theme from the Walrus Hunt works surprisingly well in this context. What saves this release is Goosebump, the B side of the vinyl original, which was played entirely in instruments purchased at Toys R Us. Assorted nursery rhymes and children's favourites are put through the Resident's mangler and come out sounding menacing and sinister, with a toy guitar grinding out some Snakefinger like lines. Worth picking up if you're a fan, but not for the unconverted.
