DNRC037 | 2LP | 2004 | DELETED
After the relentless mood-rock of “96302”, Teh seemed to flounder for a moment in their new-found popularity, before well and truly cocking it up by releasing this piece of toenail wax. Recorded live, as the name suggests, inside their friend Hari’s light plane, the unspeakable ordinariness of this double album would be forgivable were it not for Teh’s otherwise remarkable abilities. In the hands of any other band, a song like “Song For Hari” might have become a top ten hit; here, alas, its pitiful patter is fit only for a margarine commercial. Indeed, were it not for T and Eh’s remarkable artistic integrity, each song on this album would have been destined for use as filler on Suadi FM radio stations; thankfully, even the Saudis have been spared that fate, and the entire double album’s contents have been safely, though sadly deleted.
