10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 9th May 2016

I was so excited to discover that there was a band called Sparklehorse and that their debut album was called Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot that I paid a ridiculous £18.99 for an import copy of the CD, the best part of a year before it was released here, from a certain Leeds record shop beginning with J. It had a sticker on it that said “Divide your life into a time before and a time after Sparklehorse”. Do I regret the over-priced purchase? Not one bit. This certainly was a landmark album for me and despite loving other Sparklehorse records an awful lot, I still think this is their best.

It’s packed with what we now know as Mark Linkous signature sounds – scratchy folk (Homecoming Queen), lolloping Americana (Cow, Weird Sisters) , general weirdness (850 Double Pumper Holley, Little Bastard Choo-Choo), absolute beauty (The Most Beautiful Widow In Town), punchy, anthemic pop songs (Rainmaker, Someday I Will Treat You Good, Hammering The Cramps) and weird and wonderful lyrics: “He’s been known to sleep on piles of trolleys abandoned on October lawns, but sometimes he awakens with spiders on his eyelids” from “Rainmaker” for example.

I can’t say enough good things about this album – it’s an endlessly rewarding classic.
