  Mutations AND HEREWITH one of those engaging free plugs which we sometimes deliver when the wind is in the right direction and our normal bitter sardonism is temporarily muted into a kind of vibrant glow. The reason for the above poesie is the existence of a band called Coum (pronounced Spermatazoa), whose spokesman and chief idiot, name of Genesis POrage, visits these offices occasionally and phones even more frequently. That, in itself, wouldnt achieve much - were hard, y know hard - but recent reports from Brussels, where this extraordinary band have been enjoying some kind of smash success, and the on-the-record praise of one J.Peel (They re mad - but we need more of this kind of madness) have prompted us to plug this band, whose act (we haven t actually seen them, mind you) as apparently based around bicycle wheels, nude dancing and the kind of anarchy which moved Brussels chief classical music critic to declare, in tears, They ve changed my life. Henceforth, I will think of myself and Life in entirely different terms. New Musical Express 9 February 1974 Accessed 7.12.06 from
