Now that Piano Magic are no more what happens next? Well the first thing out of their stable is this collaboration between Cedric Pin and Glen Johnson (the main one). It's an 18 track CD only thing of darkwave and electronica inspired by the dark things in life and thinking a bit harder than the usual pop people. I imagine there's more to come from this collective - you might want to get in first.

With Piano Magic no more it's good to see Glen Johnson giving us more of his 'ghost-rock' with this excellent collaboration with Cédric Pin. Let's be honest, this is a goth record for sure. Not cartoon-goth stylee - all bombastic and pompous - but a serious, brooding record with dark atmospherics aplenty. Glen's vocal is more spoken word than singing at times, but that just adds to the eerie feel. 18 tracks and pushing an hour in length, some may find this a bit much, especially in one sitting. But if you are in the mood for it it is superb, and like a good film, it can stay with you long after it's finished. The artwork is fantastic too with Cédric Pin's paintings on the sleeve and enclosed booklet. A proper Edwardian feel to the whole package then, and timeless it may well prove to be. Just make sure you ask Mum to leave the landing light on though.
