"This Manchester duo, comprised of vocalist Louise Rhodes and drummer/sampler Andy Barlow, met in 1993 and formulated a future be-bop sound that blends lusty jazz overtones with untempered drumbeats. Their self-titled debut album, a Fontana release, displays Rhodes' torch song harmonies melodically striking the electronic pulses of Barlow's sampled drumbeats. While performing live, they are joined by a string quartet, which gives their music a feathered quality, much like Portishead or Attica Blues.
Rhodes, a former photographer for the U.K. music press, grew up singing hippie folk songs. However, she decided early on that she desired a different musical texture and began searching for a producer that would mix her soul and hip-hop fragments into be-bop. Barlow had just moved to Manchester after living in Philadelphia for three years. It was there that his interest in dance music escalated and he began his career as a D.J., spinning at local clubs. Rhodes sought him out and asked him to produce for her. Rhodes' throaty lyrics collided with Barlow's thumping techno beats, and Lamb was born."www.lambstar.net
