Lungfish are a band who never really fit into any kind of “scene”. Locking into their sensuous repeato grooves with pagan psych vibes over which Dan Higgs would recite his wizardy rants, they always seemed kind of out of place on Dischord with all those spiky, exuberant punk kids, but they kept on plugging away at it, putting out mind-expanding album after album for over a decade to establish a unique and powerful aesthetic which is still influential today.

This LP was recorded in 1999 but shelved at the time while the band developed new material that would become their 'Necrophones' LP (of which early versions of six tracks appear here), and as far as their material goes it's more on the rocky side of things, with some real heavy stoner vibes when they get going, but that's tempered by intuitive, chiming melodic guitar lines from Asa Osborne which still boggle my mind with their expressive, perfect simplicity. Hawkwind-esque finale 'Shapes In Space' providing an unreservedly galloping sucker-punch to round off the experience.

The chemistry between the four players is wonderful and the grooves are so natural, this is far from a fans-only release. In fact if you've not heard Lungfish before then this would be a pretty easy way in, since it's one of the more rock-flavoured examples of their particular inimitable brand of outsider hypno weirdness. If you ask me, which by reading this review you implicitly did, at this price you'd be crazy not to get involved.
