Mr T M Lazarus has got it all right with his review, so I just want to add what a pleasant surprise it was to stumble across this apparently and inexplicably obscure band. I recommend a look at their video, "It's always boomtime" to give you a general idea - I originally found this by searching for Kevin Rowland videos, and he makes a great cameo appearance at the end of the vid. That song is not on this album, instead it is on their almost impossible to source debut (try eBay for that). But this album did not disappoint.
There's a lot going on with this music, and it challenges and unpeels your mind a little. It's also faintly mesmeric, engaging in a variety of ways, and I would thoroughly recommend it.
I'm also going to say that, as far as muscial comparisons go, I am reminded of The Fall - albeit, a funkier, more whimsical version, but nonetheless out there somewhere in that region of the poposphere that rewards long distance, even interstellar travel.
