Label: MEGA DODO

Release date: 15/02/2013

Barcode: 0608938240149

Catalog no.: DODOLP0000001

Item ID: 383824

Limited edition red vinyl. It's impossible not to reel out the obvious reference points of vintage English psychedelia (Syd Barrett, Small Faces, Kevin Ayers, Sell Out-era The Who etc.), but the songs remain strong throughout, while songs such as 'Sinister Cyclist' and 'Don't Cross Colin' infuse these more retro aspects with a wry, Half Man Half Biscuit-like humour that cant help but endear. When 'Big Hit' tells of a man who is "a big cheese at the new exclusive restaurant" and always trying on ladies underwear, you might suddenly feel the urge to throw on the Kinks' 'Face To Face', but the sunshine nostalgia harmonies of 'Here I Stand' and sly, creeping organ of closer 'Georgina Jones' point towards a band that would struggle to write a bad song even if they tried. Welcome Mordecai Smyth!

Also available: STICKY TAPE AND RUST (CD).
