Provoking and seducing in equal measures, a soulful, insistent and sometimes riotous collection of songs and distracting instrumentals. The album features the ever present musical heart of Shriekback – the vocal and lyrical alchemy of Barry Andrews, and the percussive bedrock of Martyn Barker along with Mark Raudva, Carlo Asciutti, Wendy Partridge, Barry Andrews’ son Finn and Andy Partridge who contributes some fiery guitar work, playing alongside Barry Andrews for the first time since the early incarnation of XTC.
