John Watts - The Iceberg Model (1983) - €10,00

The Iceberg Model (1983). This project incorporated Dexys Midnight Runners' brass section, strings, improvisations and experimental techniques usually associated with modern classical music.A step down from his first solo effort and also a change in style. 
More keyboards than before and Watts adds saxophones. It kicks off with 3 killer tracks: "Interference", "Man in someone else's skin" and "I smelt roses (in the underground)". 
No rock, but horns and also some african percussion. John was experimenting with a new sound, and although i gave the record a lot of listens, i never got the hang of it. 
Especially the closing song "Iceberg model" is an instrumental and a cacophony of horns and keyboards and weird sounds. 
After that the rest of the album is a bit of a let down, but still more than enjoyable for fans of Fischer-Z.
