Waiting For You...
After two singles on Hyperdub, and a release on Soul Jazz, King Midas Sound's "Waiting For You" is the debut album from Roger Robinson and Kevin Martin's new group. In previous collaborations, Roger performed as a highly respected poet, but when he opened his mouth to sing in a fragile falsetto, everything changed and King MIdas Sound was born. The signature intensity of their previous solo projects remains, but the mood and feeling is radically different. As opposed to Roger's spoken workd pronouncements and The Bug's fierce battleground dancehall, King Midas Sound is more like an opiated aftermath.
