The stories behind the four singles which went to make up the Associates' second album are legion. How Billy MacKenzie sang through a vacuum cleaner tube on "Kitchen Person"; how cups were stuck on heads to help implement "The Associate"; the phlegmy coughs which doubled as backing vocals on "Q Quarters". Listening to Fourth Drawer Down now, it seems incredible Rankine and MacKenzie were allowed to get away with so much. But thank goodness they were. MacKenzie's typically overwrought falsetto still carries considerable emotional clout when matched to his partner's dislocated funk and the dark, skewed electronica. The strangeness doesn't stop there, either; among the five bonus tracks included is the song ("Straw Towels") which resulted in the Associates being hospitalised, suffering from drug-induced panic attacks. Plus, there's the rather strange "Blue Soap"--recorded in one take by Billy while he was in the bath listening to a tape of "Kitchen Person". They really don't make them like this any more. --Jerry Thackray

Double Hipness is a confusion of delights. Twenty-five rare and unreleased tracks which neatly fill in most of the gaps on the Associates' mercurial, tempestuous career. There are tracks from MacKenzie and Rankine's late 1970's cabaret roots, and early demos which owed a fair amount to both Station To Station-era Bowie and the collected poise of The Sparks. (Watch out for the imaginary dance craze "Do The Call Girl".) There are six tracks from the ill-fated 1993 reunion, even featuring a camp, glitter stomp riposte to The Smiths' own Associates tribute song "William it was Really Nothing". There are dark demos of "Party Fears Two" and "Club Country". There are out-takes from the first album The Affectionate Punch, recorded after the pair were given endless hours of studio time. There's the Bacharach tribute, "Saline Drips". There's the emotionally heightened take on David Bowie's "Boys Keep Swinging". There's the rather bewildering and perverted title track... and so on. Perfect for both the casual observer and obsessive fan--who probably will have many of these on crackly bootleg already. --Jerry Thackray
Advantages: covers many basic linguistic theories, includes activities and exercises to aid learning and development, very descriptive Disadvantages: small font, can be hard to follow at times due to the bland-ish/ to-the-point factual information
...take over the conversation, interruptions and what they mean, etc. This is one of the better chapters especially for non linguists as it is more easily applied and viewed in light of our own language experiences.
Chapter 7 is a more detailed summary of the whole book in the sense that it looks at both spoken and written language and defines the approaches used to study them both based...
...Kyle does (in my opinion). The only person who came across as even remotely sympathetic was Kyle?s father, but even then there wasn?t a great deal of depth to him.
My major problem with The Associate is that it follows the line of so many of Grisham?s books and he does seem to be collecting bit and pieces of other novels and adding them to this one, and at least for the majority of the book...
Advantages: Clear and important political message Disadvantages: Direct, dim, and disturbing
