8/10 Mike Staff review, 29 November 2012

There’s a peculiar backstory behind the oddly-monikered King Cyst, who were, according to the press release, “primarily...an instrumental Doors cover band” until lyricist Luka Usmiani gave them a demo CD of his work last year and they were so excited that within five months they had written and recorded this peculiar album I’m listening to right now.

According to the press release Luka’s songwriting is built on a foundation of ‘70s Canterbury prog by the likes of Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers, and there’s certainly more than a hint of those influences in places here, particularly in the vocals, but musically this is altogether more lo-fi and somewhat freer and looser, and just as often reminds me of the anarchic post-musical minimal weirdness that came out of New York in the 1980s, with plenty of disorienting saxophone skronk over the shuffling grooves in places courtesy of Ian Drennan.
