'Eloise My Dolly' is a right old swinging party of crazy twanging and animal sounds, clattering eccentric percussion, sounds of toys playing scrabble with cuckoos. 'Construction Of The Speech Mechanism' has an ace cut up female vocal with breezy guitar and off kilter rhythms. More music about frogs, little blue piggy's, sounds of music boxes being wound up, crackers spoken word pieces and all manner of lunacy make this an album that demands your attention. With his last solo album 'Nose Points' receiving our album of the week on its release he's the only artist to win the prize twice. Surely a testament to the good mans genius. This limited edition LP both looks and sounds fantastic and is out on Felix Kubin's excellent label Gagarin Records.
10/10 Conrad Slater Customer review,
I discovered Ergo from listening to the WFMU podcasts; I especially enjoyed his Codpaste series with People Like Us. This is the first album of his I've bought so to get it on vinyl is a really treat.Eloise my Dolly was played on a three hour podcast special in 2007 and I was a instant fan. It has an epic quality, obsessional and yet also quaint. The diary style monologues of the seedy inventor or beautifully silly and the whole thing runs along like a demented clockwork toy.Handmade is far more 'safe' and enjoyable, suitable for playing whilst painting or sewing.
