Patrick Q-Wright to Mick Hobbs, Marie-Jeanne; Felix Fiedorowicz to Keisuke Matsui to Daniel Koskowitz as well as Claudia Schmid, Bill Gilonis and Antoine Gindt spreading their excessive Avant-Garde and Art-Rock within thus Electronic Jazz-Rock whilst the bad dreams occurred to the woman living next to your poor flat – screaming her endless nights for seeing the haunts of thus laughing skeleton over Dead Unique recorded by Officer!

A singular course of caustic improviser subsequent bursts of plangent melodies, ingenious arranger to the caustic and courtly lyrics sounded playful enough with words and music written by Mick Hobbs. Amazing domain isn’t the outrageous Classic of English Art-Rock viewing through Go Back, Cows Hum in The Fields, Elephant Flowers, Nardis, Stewed Fruit, V.I.M onto The Pony Was Contented or Lilac and Orange may crowning an achievement from the few liking listeners as a masterpiece from these London’s priority on this British’s Melodic Folk group as you like it performing by them.

Album recorded in 1995 but not released until now. Superb collection of fragmented songs complete with skronk interludes, diverse instrumentation, creative mixing and many melodic twists and turns. Has been compared to artists like Flaming Tunes, Art Bears, Cleaners From Venus, Lol Coxhill and Kevin Ayers... but in my opinion it's closest relative is the splintered post-punk of 1980s-era Homosexuals and, occasionally, very early Negativland. Some of the songs are claustrophobically constructed.... like entering dense undergrowth... but there's always a way out... into wide open pastures and fresher air. I might go so far as to say this is the best album of the 1990s - especially in its field... which I would describe as 'experimental-avant-post-punk-pop-15-years-after-the-fact'.
