An Audience of Art Deco Eyes - Moon Wiring Club [2007]

Familiar jauntily creepy shenanigans and future past re-imaginings. Most sounds sourced from television, film and dialogue snafflings from public service broadcasts submerged amongst odd percussion and bleeping Radiophonic burblings. What is it about the repetition of de-contextualised phrases such as "key too small" and "the picture in the house" that summon up all kinds of Armchair Thriller uneasiness? Go figure. Track titles tell a similar story: An invitation to shoebox garden; Some cobwebbed limbo; Dumpley's acrostics. It's not all atmospherics though and there are quirky melodic delights aplenty herein.

Open up your inner ghost box.
