8/10 Mingus Staff review, 22 May 2008
Lovely re-issue of classic English pastoralism. Here's Mingus's review from back in the days we sold CDs.
Twelve tracks of melancholic English pastoralism in the vein of Vini Reilly's Durutti Column. Long drawn out guitar passages, sometimes drenched in reverb. Introduced with the pips (UK Radio time signatures) heard on the BBC which often call to mind a kind of misplaced English (or British) nostalgia for things like bowling greens and warm ale. The addition of the wistful sounding vocals and quite calm call to mind bands like Hood and Epic 45.
