Loose Tapestries is the name of the collaboration between Kasabian’s Sergio Pizzorno and comedian Noel Fielding. N.H.S. includes barmy songs created for the second series of Fielding’s equally mental tv comedy show, Luxury Comedy. There was a previous release from Loose Tapestries which now goes for big bucks on ebay so don’t hang around here. The songs, whilst bizarre and comical has some solid synth work and great instrumentation and moves through musical styles with ease.

Loose Tapestries appears to be the work of Noel Fielding -- you know, the less talented half of The Mighty Boosh duo -- and Sergio from Kasabian. So we have cod disco in ‘Live For The Night (Cocaine City)’, faux glam, paltry punk impressions like ‘(I’d Rather Be) Plastacine’, pseudo surf (‘Paul Panfer’), a piss take of acid folk weirdery in ‘Goblins’ AND AGAIN on ‘In The Garden & The Cucumbers of Cool’ and numerous childish skits and comedic interludes, in really bad imitations of the worst elements of the crimping Noel did in that television series.
I guess they think they’re being really clever with all the genres of music they are aping (badly) under a vague cloak of comedy-pastiche, but the whole thing is totally unlistenable and best avoided -- unless you happen to be a superfan of either of the two jokers involved in the making of this waste of vinyl. On a positive final note, they’ve also included their novelty Christmas single from last December with Idris Elba. Woo.
