Snail Bob makes music in his own terms. One might call this 'noise' or 'deconstructed punk', but as is so often the case with individual music, which I define as "could only have been made by this person, at this time", I struggle to give labels to this sound art. Actually, on second thoughts, this is a blues album.


Considering how sparse and sometimes aggressive the music, this is a surprisingly melodic and soulful collection. From the strangled rage of the Waitsian opener 'Angry People' to the amorphous soundscapes of the second half, this album expresses a wide range of musical and emotional states. S'Bob names Pink Floyd and The Residents as primary influences. Sounds about right.

Syd Howells of Fuku Records etc said of this album;

"Listeners to this recording are greeted by what appears to be Captain Beefheart being tortured by the Residents as they make a ransom call to his family.  Other tracks include what I perceive to be an attempt to condense the whole of The Dark Side of the Moon into a single track of  several minutes.  I love this record."
