Energising Alt Rock  –   Live in Staines

Alphabet Backwards at Hobgoblin Staines

Alphabet
Backwards
Apr 30 2009
Hobgoblin
Staines

w/ Lemonshaft

Even if our zeitgeist (spirit of this age) yokes us away from this inexplicable xenophobia and withdrawal from various prejudices; the undefined beauty of this theoretical Acousto alt.ectronika band is that they subsume delicicious sounds in their rarefied qualitative productions openly, but not nihilistically, as a motif (laconic or otherwise) kinetically determined judiciously inward – yet holistically grafted in a frantic effort towards a dynamic and a cosmically broadened anxiety.

Yeah, thanks Neil … blah di blah di blah ….  yawn …  why don’t you go see ’em for yourself and see if you agree with him?
