The Saxophones started as the solo project of Alex Erenkov. He wanted to incorporate some basic percussion into his sound so recruited his wife, Alison Alderdice, which also meant he could take her on tour with him. As you can probably tell from the cover of Songs Of The Saxaphones, he’s quite fond of her. Their influences all come come from leftfield sounds such as The Exotica/Hawaiian music of the 1950s - Edhen Abhez, Buddy Fo and Martin Denny to name a few, Vittorio Impiglia, a 1970s Italian outsider guitarist and west coast jazz. LP on Full Time Hobby.

Staff note from Clinton:
It's all gone to pot with that sleeve hasn't it? Until now the Saxophones have quietly released a set of lovely 7" singles exemplifying their gentle sound which has elements of Hawaiian music and exotica and blends it with the slow-fi of Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies.  It's an intoxicating blend on the likes of album opener 'Time Is Like a River'. It really is special and so evocative. Then you look at the sleeve.
