3. Nature Lovers
Pharaohs cover a range of styles on this three-track release. Epic opener 'Manhunter' sounds like the mutant grandchild of no-wave/Naïve Funk/late-1970s/early-1980s New York City. Think 99 Records, Sleeping Bag or ZE, throw in some Madchester, then tiptoe past Gottsching's E2-E4, and you're close. If Arthur Russell (RIP) guested on this track, it wouldn't be a surprise. The other two cuts are roughly new age, but with one distinction - the filth oozing off the sax on 'Nature Lovers' is more shocking and sleazy than any Wolf Eyes track. Of course, shocking in the most serene way possible. That said, either could be a lost backing track to an early Roxy Music album.
