Hard Normal Daddy ‎(Cass, Album). Warp Records, Warp Records. Hard Normal Daddy ‎(2xLP, Album). Hard Normal Daddy wasn't a big deal to me at first. None of the albums I love are. But this turned into one of those albums I can listen to start to finish any time of day with any emotion and just feel incredible. What out there is really comparable to this release? Jenkinson covers a lot of ground, but I'd say the overall theme is playful energy. There's a lot of fast paced electronic music out there that just sounds mean, or aggressive, or just plain too silly. But these tracks here are refined and feel purposeful.

Album · 1997 · 12 Songs. Part drum 'n' bass, part jazz-fusion, Squarepusher's Warp debut sounded like little that had come before it. The breakbeats rattled so fast, they were dubbed "drill 'n' bass"; the arrangements had more twists and turns than an . And then there were those incredible fretless bass solos, which Squarepusher-a. producer Tom Jenkinson-performed himself.

Hard Normal Daddy is a 1997 studio album by British electronic musician Tom Jenkinson under his alias of Squarepusher. A single for the track "Vic Acid" was released in 1997 prior to the album's release.

Although, like the preceding Port Rhombus EP, this album sounds substantially cleaner and more thought out than previous releases for Spymania and Rephlex, it also far surpasses those releases in terms of musicality and track development, not simply relying on the shock value of f" drum programming and light-speed fretless bass noodling. Jenkinson's bass accompaniment also sounds far less prog rock-influenced here, making Hard Normal Daddy his overall most listenable work to date.

Strangely, Hard Normal Daddy is probably Squarepusher's best album not because of what its got, but what its lacking. For probably the first and only time in his entire career, Hard Normal Daddy actually shows signs of restraint and actual consideration to composition and songs. This is not to take away from the stunning brilliance of the jazz indulgent Music Is Rotted One Note or the boarderline pyschotic sounds of Go Plastic. But when you strip him of his little mindsex gimicks, Jenkinson really does show of that not only does he have a knack for writting songs but writting really good.

I think the only issue with this album is that it feels a little outdated, but that's a good thing imo. One of my all time favourite albums.

Lovely bloke on eBay just sold me this gem on vinyl for a tenner. Squarepusher's best work and now that I finally own it on vinyl it's probably my favourite in my, albeit rather small collection (apart from Throbbing Pouch). Everything blends together so well on this album, the drum programming, the bass playing, the jazz elements, goddamn it's near impossible for me not to not start shaking my leg in time to the tracks on it. Love it.

Is true the infos i read about a repress of this ep?someone can assure it?

If you're referring to the FACT Mag article from 2016 my guess is it was a misinterpretation. The last Shoebaleader Album contains the "deluxe Squarepusher classics"... hope that I'm wrong and reissues of the older albums are planned :-)

TJ's Warp debut...and what a debut it is. Straight from the opening Spy music that is "Coopers World" to the closing pseudo-ambience of "Rebus", this is one for the archives."Beep Street" remains my favorite pusher track, even after almost 20 years(!)..."Papalon" weaves a story with no words; "E8 Boogie" definitely lives up to its name (if this track doesn't make you move...). "Male Pill 13" is beautifully melodic and skittery at the same time. "Rustic Raver", "Chin Hippie" and "Rat/P's and Q's" are suitably ravey insanity. "Vic Acid" needs no words, as it is brilliant in every way. All in all, very very few downsides to this one. 10/10

Exellent
The booklet is nice poster :)

This guy is a musical prodigy and very talented in the sense that he plays lots of instruments and does all the effects and production himself. His talents are mind boggling and you have to take your hat off to him. For me this has always been my favourite of his - I wished he would slow things down and go back to this style again. This is a very melodic and playful album. And on a side note: when is he going to team up with Ceephax and give us the electronic Bros album we've all been waiting years for?! That would be quite an interesting listen I'm sure!!

did a cold-buy on this disc; i liked aphex twin's drill n bass, and figured i'd like squarepusher's too. but holy shit this is better than Hangable Auto Bulb or DrukQs. made my jaw drop. simply amazing.

I just can say when we where kids we only have had about 10 CDRs or so and we listened to this album from dusk till dawn and I still love it today. I think Tom is one of the uniques musicians around. I always would recognize his stuff. His production skills are kind of unhuman, especially the drum programming. Not to mention his bass playing skills...My favorites on this LP are 'Rustic Raver', 'Chin Hippy', 'Papalon', 'E8 Boogie', 'Fat Controller' ahh forget it one cant decide on this brilliant album :_)Always a joy to my ears, mind and feet - one couldnt sit still when listening to this!A d&b classic.

Roru
The first two track are really GREAT! The rest is just nervous, shreddered beat stuff. I hear some people really like this, but not me. In any way I admire the drum programming. Technically, a good release, but too hectic for my taste.

Kazracage
one of mr jenkinson's less sought gems.. a score, if you can find a copy. a great cover to match the masterful content. more fluid and consistent than other releases like 'music is rotted one note', or 'maximum priest' - expect a slightly less turbulent ride than his other stuff.

Burirus
Tom Jenkinson makes his d'nb approach to jazz music. Speeded up to 320 bpm, this is breathtaking, sometimes melodious, sometimes cold acid-technology. Absolutely a classic.

Rigiot
This is one of the definitive Warp releases, which is not saying little. A perfect blend of weird drill'n'bass and out of this world jazz. The best track in my opininon is Papalon, and there are few downpoints on the record. Be sure to check out this absolute classic!
