The Caretaker is the alter ego of that lovely James V/Vm fella. As V/Vm he makes a right old (textured) racket as a rule.... but as The Caretaker it's a much more sedate affair. To sum the music up easily you have to go no further than the title of his first album' Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom'. That's exactly what the music sounds like.... old ballroom music with crackles and whizz ...

9/10 Phil Staff review, 03 May 2010

The Caretaker is the alter ego of that lovely James V/Vm fella. As V/Vm he makes a right old (textured) racket as a rule.... but as The Caretaker it's a much more sedate affair. To sum the music up easily you have to go no further than the title of his first album' Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom'. That's exactly what the music sounds like.... old ballroom music with crackles and whizzles, all lopped up in the most eerie way imaginable.

It's like the ghosts of yesteryear have taken over the stereo and what you can hear are a load of old folks memories. The only things missing are the bingo wings (or nan flaps...)and the voices. Hey you'll be old soon so don't diss the old folks...... life shoots by and before you know it you'll be zooming your way info your grave like there's no tomorrow. 'Persistent Repetition of Phrases' is the strongest work I've heard so far by The Caretaker. Both haunting and beautiful... I like this a lot.


8/10 Roel Customer review,

Wow, this feels and sounds like the sinking of the Titanic again. Ballroom lounge with clicks and added spaces helping you out in order to reach the shoreline... Distractions!
