From the iridescent, colour-shifting plains of inner Shpongolia an embassy has been established in our mundane dimension. The creatures, first looked at suspiciously due to their odd appearance and behaviour, want to show us their benevolence by bringing us strange and lucid tones. There are those who cannot dig it, alien as it is - they do not understand, and may forever be tethered to what is real in the here and now. But those who dig it are frequently seen meditating away to the vibrations in clouds of smoke, or dancing softly to themselves in slow and fluid motions, closed-eyed and smiling. The underlying message from these space creatures (who are really not just two LSD-addled British blokes) is obvious: we bring you peace!

"There is a cheer. The gnomes have learned a new way to say hooray."

  1. You write reviews very well. It's always a joy to read them on here (even if I've already heard the album).
