Elektrolux welcomes a new exciting project from England entitled Cop Show. Pete Stanley from Birmingham and Marcus Fry from Taunton met in a conventional electronic rock band in 1998, Pete as lead vocalist and Marcus as keyboard player. After working together for quite a while they started to think about their own musical directions. At first working on a live electro-pop project, performing with female vocalists. Then, after moving into an altogether more atmospheric mood to suit their own personal influences, Peters' being 70's analogue synth sounds and Marcus, a fascination with electronic/synthetic keyboard sounds, they came up with a highly individual blend of warm, chilling and sometimes sinister melodies and superb incidental vocals, now culminating in their first project release, Cop Show - Episode One. According to Pete Stanley the project mirrors a very personal approach of the duo towards music making: â??For some reason, when I think of certain kinds of images, my imagination creates an atmosphere and then a tune to build on that atmosphere. That helps more images materialize and the music builds up on this. I found that a lot of images that I could focus on easily were those of late 1960's & early 70's design. For instance cars, clothes, news, freaky buildings, films or... cop shows. The beauty of the cop shows e.g. Starsky & Hutch, Kojak etc was that when I was a kid, I'd get these shows regularly and an episode would be full of the images I now find I want to work with. I seem to remember these images and atmospheres with ease. So, a little while back, me and Marcus decided to write tunes based purely on cop show clichés...? Well, in our opinion â??Episode One' is a virtual soundtrack that offers much more and some peoples imaginations will create different images when they hear the music of Cop Show. It's an unique album that covers a wide range of musical influences such as electronia, jazz, filmscores among others. An amazing listening experience that will cause astir on the international music scene!
