8/10 Ant Staff review, 18 August 2011
Tom Fazzini was a member of Gush, Purr and also A Small Good Thing who released some ambient stuff in the '90s on Soleilmoon and Leaf in the early 2000s. His first solo record 'Neck To Neck' was released back in 1984 and more recently an album came out on Locust in 2007. I'm ashamed to say I've never heard his music until today when this new 7" landed in my review pile after being hand delivered by the man himself. What we have here in 'Stats' is a slice of dark neo-folk with acoustic guitars, bagpipes and some strange experimental screeching sounds. This may appeal to followers of Current 93. 'The Programme' is on the surface a fairly straightforward folk track but as it unfolds there are unexpected twists like the short ambient breakdown and the very intriguing lyrics.
