8/10 Ant Staff review, 08 September 2016
Debut solo album from Northern England dwelling fellow that was part of Pendle Coven and HATE alongside Miles Whittaker and Andy Stott.
The tranquillized guitar chug of ‘Screamin' Demon Pickups’ sets an unsettling, eerie scene - like being lost in the fog on the artists local Yorkshire/ Lancashire Moors. Some creepy, dubby f/x laden percussion enters the mix adding an extra layer of tension. ‘Micky Cosmos’ is foggy, swampy, sludgy techno that kinda reminds me a little of the steamy jungle atmosphere created by Kane Ikin. ‘Packhorse’ has a Pan Sonic/ Emptyset low frequency thing with sparse woody percussion hits. ‘Angels and Doormen’ builds ghoulish synth and razor sharp snare like burts into a climax of coruscating noise.
‘Yorkshire Fog’ works footwork like, dislocated percussion and bursts of static around vocal samples of a very Northern sounding man. Is that craggy faced heartthrob Sean Bean? ‘Devil’s Bit Scabious’ is a gloom-scape of animated, throbbing sub-bass that’s like Godzilla scoffed one of Chris Watson’s hydrophones. The titular closing track sounding like aforementioned beast terrorizing a small village and chomping its inhabitants.
Crank up the volume on this dark beast of a record for the most rewarding, rib cage rattling listening experience.
