an accidental hearing lead me to this!!!,
This review is from: Back To Land (Audio CD)
it is seldom i write reviews about anything on this site and yet i want to about this release.
i heard it by wandering into the oldest record shop in the world (cardiff) as it was playing. liked what i heard and subsequently bought a copy from the great staff there. i love the happy accidents like this.
this album is very polished and apparently written and recorded in just 11 days. the immediate sound reminded me of the drones of the band Suicide, the space of Hawkwind and a whole host of experimental psychedelia thrown in for the mix.
the album is relatively short with only 8 songs/sounds. nevertheless those 8 will make an impact. immediate listening will draw you to repeat play.
it pays to visit your local independent record shop i have found out. i have missed doing such a thing as there is no choice in Swansea. really! naming no names. this is why i have chosen to find things far cheaper online than be ripped off anymore.
so all in all this was such a lucky find for me. i would highly recommend you searching for selected songs via a search engine check, take a listen and get yourself a copy. to own the physical copy and its artwork is well worth it.
i hope this review will prompt people to check this album out.

Oh yes!! The wonder of Spillers where the owners and staff are nice, knowledgeable and in no way condescending unlike something called Derricks Records in Swansea. They are the reason I won't shop in that store and I am not alone. I will make my way and efforts to support Spillers always. Especially on Record Store Day! Long may the oldest record store live and prosper. Well done you guys for who and what you are

Heard a track on Gideon Coe's programme on 6 Music, possibly These Shadows, a beautiful tune!
