This is a fantastic mini album; the best thing the band have recorded since their classic debut 'Laughing Academy' and the first with the original line of Luxury/Giro/Bond and Drummer Steve Sekrit back together. Released in 2011 this must have been sooo limited (it doesn't even have a bar-code). I only managed to get a copy at one of their all too infrequent gigs earlier this year in Middlesbrough. All 5 songs are great, from the catchy guitar pop of 'Mamonanimal', the inventive prog rock of 'Fracture' and the psycho punk of 'I Rang Yvonne' all showcase the amazing guitar work of Nev Luxury. 'Mr Dinosaur' is a metal stomper with samples and 'Cry' is an eastern tinged psychedelic ballad with great lyrics and a vocal tour de force from Brian Bond. Throughout the album the production and playing is superb, the lyrics are as quirky and thought provoking as ever and no one who loves 'Laughing Academy' will be disappointed. To be still making music of this quality and originality after nearly 40 years is testament to their collective genius and it's high time Punilux got some of the acclaim and respect they deserve. This album needs a proper release too, it's not available on Amazon, itunes or anywhere as far as I can tell. Some more gigs would be nice as well chaps. For that you get a Blue Peter badge x
