Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars When it was released in 1982 the incidental music heard between scenes during the extravagant (and financially catastrophic) stage presentation of the Mole Show must have seemed like a belated afterthought to an already abandoned project. But now that the EP has been added to the 2005 Mute Records re-issue of the "Mark of the Mole" album it can be appreciated in the proper thematic context.

The original, unfinished "Mole" trilogy (later expanded into a likewise never completed cycle of six LPs) was an ambitious but incoherent exercise in self-conscious, self-indulgent narrative weirdness, a theatrical concept requiring (not unlike PINK FLOYD's "The Wall") more effort and attention than it was ultimately worth.

But without the baggage of a complicated story to weigh them down, The Residents (still a group at the time; today I'm not so sure) were able in these various overtures and interludes to concentrate more on the music itself. The result is 25-minutes of toe-tapping, tongue-in-cheek weirdness (a Residents specialty), exhibiting more musical continuity than the entire "Mark of the Mole" album it later supplemented.

(And there's a bonus for Progheads: the appearance of a Mellotron, prominent in "The New Hymn" at the close of the brief five-song set. No one plays a Mellotron without at least a tacit acknowledgement of some sort of Progressive Rock legacy.)

In the final analysis "Intermission" works better as an epilogue than it ever did as an independent EP. You might even say it blows the "Mole" album off its own stage.

4 stars To me, this music, originally written to be played in between scenes from "The Mole Show" does just fine on it's own. It's dark, weird, and very rhthmic. And like much of The Residents' work, losts of fun if you can appreciate it.

Light's Out (Prelude) I presume was meant to set the mood at the beginning of the show. It has a tribal sound, with a typical off key synth sound providing the melody.

Shorty's Lament (Intermission) has one of the coolest rhythms the Residents ever created. Along with that, the vocals by Annie Stocking, Jeanette Sartain and Joan Cashel are just wonderful.

The Moles Are Coming (Intermission). Need I say more? The moles are coming.

Would We Be Alive? (Intermission) is about as eerie as the Residents get (and that's extremely eerie). I love how the vocals change to a cry of "Help us! Please!" by the end.

And The New Hymn (Recessional) bring it all to a close.

Bliss.

3 stars 'Intermission' is one of those albums that was not designed to see the light of day but thanks to the growing Residents' fanbase, it just has. It is not a bad album either by any standards but is really just the music and effects used during the scenes in the excessive lavish stage show promoting the Mole saga. Interestingly enough the material in the intermission and between scenes is at times better than that on the studio album 'Mark of the Mole'.

Tracks such as tribalistic 'Lights Out' and the jumpy quirky 'Shorty's Lament' are real gems. It is great that one can listen to this music although it was only meant to be inbetween the actual scenes in the show. 'The Moles Are Coming' has a terrific rhythmic pulse, and well executed keyboards driving it; sounding more like vintage Devo than any Residents track.. 'Would We Be Alive?' has a chilling keyboard chord and scratchy percussion. Vocals have that familiar Resident's twang from so many of their earlier albums. The atmosphere is dark and brooding like that heard on 'Commercial Album'. The foreboding vocoder effect on the vocals is unsettling, and I particularly like the playful glockenspiel sounds. 'The New Hymn' uses a Mellotron, and staccato percussion beats. The choir of voices suits the odd timbre in the music.

Overall, an unsettling but entertaining glimpse into the Mole show that made such an impact on the Residents' music over the years. It is worth a listen and is surprisingly better than many of the other Resident's material in their extensive catalogue.

1 stars Intermission is an EP released primarily for their fan club, but it also found it's way into some more open-minded record stores. It features music and soundscapes designed to fit between the major movements of The Mark Of The Mole. It was played during the live set as they were changing their se ... (read more)
