Silly old Mucky Sailor turn out this excellent new 10” single, featuring crashing and thrashing drums, underlying synth-throb, skronking sax and a generally unhinged sensibility. Rad! The two tracks, Albatross, Silly Albatross and Beefy Bells, both run all over the shop, providing a wild ride indeed. On Care In The Community.

- Albatross, Silly Albatross by Mucky Sailor
7/10 Robin Staff review, 25 June 2015
Idiot prog-jazz crew Mucky Sailor continue to add a modicum of chaos to the lands of Leeds with ‘Albatross, Silly Albatross’ (the comma comes at your own discretion), another record that shows off their strengths: a very small sprinkling of punk irreverence, in attitude, coupled with comedic synths, reverberating vocals and a lot of saxophones, trombones ‘n’ penny whistles. Basically just a meeting of lots of incongruent musical things leads us to the first side of this record, which begins on almost sweet, AnCo-inspired keys before rolling into a cartoonish sprawl of sax power ups and vomited dissonance. “Albatross, Silly Albatross” suggests that Mucky Sailor work well both as a party band and an avant-garde crew.
The second side is more ludicrous joy, with hellish percussion travelling between squelchy synths and chants of “ding dong ding dong!”, plus some super foreboding vocal chants that make Mucky Sailor sound momentarily kinda… metal? This techy outfit end their new 10” with a bit of free improv that, thanks to a tight rhythm section who sound like they’re picking up the pieces, sounds danceable. RIYL Peter Gabriel doing costume changes.
