“That they’ve delivered us so much already we should be grateful grateful grateful for, but as regards this latest release? These gentlemen deserve a full round of Yowzahs! Or I ain’t the Archdrude of Wessex!”- and so says Julian Cope.
….and this is another one with lots of guitars and shouting in it. I liked this one a lot because it has a noise in it that sounds like a hearing aid makes when it’s broken, I have hearing aids but I don’t wear them very much because they keep falling out my ears and I don’t think I really need them that much because I can hear fine without them.– Peter Kemp
