From the Archives: AGF.3+Sue.C vs. Laurie Anderson
Marzipan has a mother, and her name is Laurie Anderson. Or maybe they're more obliquely linked - maybe it's that Anderson, with her legacy, carved out a dark and smiling cave for AGF.3 + Sue.C to crawl into. From the moment AGF.3 calmly proclaims that her "brain bursts" at the outset of this track - and then, just as calmly, moves on - it becomes impossible to unsocket the European duo from the context of Anderson's work. Not to say that AGF.3 + Sue.C, 24 years after Anderson's "From the Air", are copycats - these tracks are so wildly divergent in form and style that it'd be hard to even pin the latter as a conclusive influence of the former. But AGF flaunts the wry, dark delivery that Anderson cornered in her work; each track sketches a self-imprinted downfall, but only as background for a large, surreal brand of hope. "I have to create something massive," says AGF. Maybe what she's created is the record of the time.
