A strange mix indeed: pitched equally within the camp of the Avant Guard and the campness of Parody.

Between the 'pre-static whine' (to use the Author's language), the sampling and resampling of a reading of The Fall Of The House Of Usher (rising to hysterical levels at one point as the word 'never' is repeated on a short loop) to the...well samples of Hawaiian Guitar this always manages to delight, intrigue and confuse the listener.

The lack of information on the release itself, the eye watering design and the positive/ negative images on the centre stickers add to the over all feeling of...well it's either displacement or they're having a laugh or possibly both.
