REVIEW - TOTALMUSICMAG
Been out for a while this one, but it keeps creeping back onto the iPod so it's obviously something of a grower. Formed in 1992 by Ali Friend (bass), Richard Thair (drums), and David Ayers (guitar) they released three fine albums, split in 2002 and reformed in 2007. Always a band known for dipping heavily in the big tub marked ?eclectic? - although the basic recipe generally revolved around a dub tinged jazzy vibe (see ?Moving Mountain? on this release) ? and Pale Blue Dot continues in much the same vein, ?Wanga Doll? even managing to sound like a cross between Morphine and the Allman Brothers, which is certainly a first in my book.
