Without doubt one of the most appropriately named bands ever, Bristol's Experimental Pop Band have delivered another top quality serving of skewed nostalgia. 'Emotion' is shameless electro-pop, 'Hard Enough' is a Fall pastiche par excellence, all dirty grunge with added punk attitude much like the instrumental 'Satan's Friends' which comes later. The groove-based 'Narcotic Days' and 'Remember' recall the louché, lazy charm of the previous album, the latter benefitting from a curiously haunting turn on pipe organ by the group leader Davey Woodward. Admittedly there is a tail-off towards the end but when the near-faultless first half produces such fertile and subversive delights it's mean to grumble. The last two efforts provide a good recovery, however, in the shape of the cartoonish fun of 'Alcudia' and 'When The Music Ends' in which Woodward croons "Thank you for listening to our songs" over a backdrop which is oddly similar to 'Something Stupid'. It was a pleasure, Davey.
