The Two Lone Swordsmen, Andrew Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood may be long-acquainted partners in the field of techno innovation, (before Two Lone Swordsmen, they worked together throughout the mid-1990s as part of seedy post-acid house rogues Sabres Of Paradise) but they've never fallen into the po-faced techno-trap of over-intellectualising their music. You didn't need a degree to enjoy previous album Stay Down--a work that joyfully explored the boundless territory of the burble, the parp and the squelch--and happily, while this, their third album offers a change in direction, it's one that delves into the endless possibilities of the buzz, the fizz, and the bleep in typically idiot savant style. "Tiny Reminders" is a driving seventy-three minute journey into the depths of electro-minimalism, peppered throughout with very characteristic bursts of the Swordsmen's deadpan humour -- see the Aphex Twin-esque gastric rumble of "Rotting Hill Carnival" and the valium-addled steel drum workout of "It's Not The Worst I've Looked... Just The Most I've Ever Cared". For those who like their techno genuinely innovative, Tiny Reminders is essential.
