so fresh and so McLean
at first it's just some really fine electronic music...
and then something seems to happen to them
i suppose in its own way it's quite intense
almost dolphins into the future zone
or verging into ferraro digi-fantasia simulacrum stuff
but it's not simply that they get a bit New Agey and mystical
it's that they start getting into the idea of theatricality - injecting the absurd and zany into electronic music performance
some sorely needed entertainment and visual divertissement
inventors of something they call the McLean Mix
sounds a bit like a Mind Meld idea - duo synergy / symbiosis.... one personality, two bodies
more likely it's their term for a new "total performance" approach" - sonics, video, gestures, costumes, jokes, etc?
" a burlesque involving music boxes, Happy Apple, synthesizer, party favors, and flexatones"
