Cool for 'Kratz


IF AUTOKRATZ were an animal, they would be a dog.
Reliable, solid, if not the most exciting, the London-based duo's full debut album Animal won't let you down, unlike, say, a penguin, lobster or koala.
The album, the follow-up to last year's hype-inducing mini album Down And Out In Paris And London, is a sturdy collection of breaks tinged with a distinct Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys and Erasure influence - in fact I swear the intro to What You Want, What You Got? is ripped wholesale from Love To Hate You.
So when I say they'd be a dog, we're not talking pedigree, more a mongrel hybrid of modern beat makers and electronica's pop pioneers.
While this journeyman dance is not going to steal many shows, don't let me dictate to you - for fans of breaks, Autokratz's album could be a man's best friend.
