The covers from this new Geese record are pretty sweet two-coloured screenprinted affairs with a kind of “Are you OK?” plaque on the back cover. On the record we've got some weird psychedelic pop from reliable weirdos Geese, with summery grooves, occasional nice high gain guitar lines and peculiar high-pitched wizardy vocals that sound a bit like Wayne Coyne channelling Zippy from Rainbow. In fact my personal highlight, 'Acid Mondays', is making me feel very Flaming Lipsy indeed. Kim Birtwell pops up to sing on the acoustic lounge-samba interlude of 'Pink Guitar', which has a strangely Tenniscoats-esque Japanese feel to it.
The rest of the time they're much closer to a Hawkwindified take on '60s psychedelia, but they approach it from a variety of angles for quite a full and varied listening experience which has no shortage of melodic hooks, ranging from wonky rockers to weird little quiet things to quite a long bit of shambling New Orleans jazz written by Mary Gauthier. Overall it comes gives me a feeling like Cranium Pie took some bad acid. I bet Julian Cope thinks it's proper awesome.
