Ashtray Navigations' latest release is notable, among other things, for it's titles, at least one of which literally takes longer to pronounce than does the track itself to listen to - I refer to "jimmy gets white in the face at the sight of a doughnut and sees red when offered a ham sandwich". Commencing with "old bridge hands", a call to arms trumpeted through what sounds like an abandoned U-bend, then unravelling lengths of chain from a lift shaft on "the corn ball lady" and the aforementioned "jimmy" in very quick succession, the title track settles down for twenty minutes of gypsy violins and a rusting drone, against the clatter and bustle of obsolete noises and devices, assembled here as if with the strategy suggested in the title track in mind. - THE WIRE (UK)
