    COQ ROCK
    Richard Cabut reviews Mike's Bikes, The Lavender Pill Mob's new album (Le Coq Musique):

    The second LP from the Pill Mob -- Kevin Mooney (Adam and the Ants, Max) and Gary Asquith (Renegade Soundwave) plus pals -- trembles on the verge of coherence, dishing out equal amounts of charm and harm. It flits from clever Trevor punk to waves of more unfamiliar sensation -- which is where it gets really good. Mike's Bikes is of course made by people who have seen too many puzzling things to be easy in their minds. Adam Ant, for instance, pops up with a version of Wide Boy Awake's "Chicken Outlaw", scatting a painful patois over music that drifts in and out of dissolution against the background of whispering voices -- an accurate picture of what goes on in Mr Ant's head these days, perhaps. The confusion lingers throughout, a fable of unease under an ostensibly ideal surface. Premonitions, memories, occult understandings; the album burrows ever deeper into subterranean, neon-struck life, probing the city's charred heart. Anything for a laugh.
