Pole: 3

Ian Penman, The Wire, May 2000

ON THE FACE of it, Stefan Betke is producing a very samey, so-what? music; compared to some modern millenarians, the bunker dub he releases under the name Pole (less a descriptive legend than a copyright mark) doesn't seem particularly radical — no noise terror or click/cut hermeticism here.

Total word count of piece: 828
