    A seminal LP encapsulating the true 'Indie' era; of C86, after punk and new wave had got tired, and before grunge and Britpop with pedals and production made guitars fashionable again. There are beautifully simple tunes, mysterious lyrics wrapped up in local culture like fish and chips in the pink'un, celebrating the boredom of small town and suburban England, ravaged by Thatcherism, teenage awe for obscure and maverick playwrights,, childhood memories of shapes yet to be fully formed as adult expression, and a wander for an unknowable pre-internet world somewhere out there. The variety of sounds, the organ and feedback lost in the non-mix, the deadpan delivery, a kaloidoscopic scan of the fears and charms a meeting of minds, a cauldron of hope, the inventiveness and utility and neediness to just make music, to add a bit of art, magic and colour. If you want to understand how the UK has produced so much diverse music as a dying industrial nation, if you believe the 80s was more than glitz, drum machines and science, this is a very essential diversion on your journey.
