1 stars 'Know What This Is?' - Big Block 454 (2/10)

Over two decades ago, Big Block 454 made their first step in what would become an incredibly diverse career. A three song demo of sorts now ripped directly from a surviving 12" vinyl, Big Block 454 began off as a downtempo electronic group. Possibly the best way to define 'Know What This Is?' is by calling it trip hop, but rest assured, the music here is utterly banal, and even boring to the point of misery. Although there are three tracks here, they all seem to employ a slightly different variation on what is essentially the same idea; simple electronic beats, abstract spoken word verses and pop hooks. Sure, Big Block 454are not depraved of any artistic sensibility, but it is difficult to say anything good about a three song EP that has me annoyed by the end of the first track. Suffice to say, this band would go on to doing much better in the future.
