Tortoise: MichaelangeLo-Fi

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 13 April 1996

Like Michaelangelo and his Ninja mates, they're mutant crossover crazies in a half shell! They are Chicago's TORTOISE and, supporting ver 'Lab on their British tour, the 'Toise have been winning over a new audience with their lo-fi dub/techno/jazz thing. DELE FADELE gets the lowdown on their punk rock attitude and free-form sound.
