Since impressing far and wide with their Beats for Bars project Patrick Bird and Martyn Savigar expanded their range of collaborators to weird, wonderful and sometimes audacious effect. In the immediate vicinity, there’s former Specimen and Siouxsie & The Banshees guitarist Jon Klein, drummer Chris Bell [also Specimen but a bevy of ’80s giants too] and, showing up in the course of this hallucinogenic journey, Billie Holliday, Catatonia, Marc Bolan and even the young John Peel.
This is an opiated aural delight from start to finish, by which time you might be stroking the ceiling like a long-lost friend, satisfied that now the world’s a better place and wondering why they don’t make them like this any more.
