The Barrier Silence CD Album A Distant Memory of Home CD Mini Album Plans For Travel CD Album

LATEST NEWS: The new album 'Plans for Travel' was released on Ochre Records (OCH028LCD) on 04/02/2002. The album is a collection of nine pieces inspired by classic journeys and the ground-breaking pioneers of land, sea and sky.

The album received a 10/10 review from Lisa McGee in the February 2002 edition of Future Music. She wrote "This album is inspired by ground-breaking forms of transport, hence tracks called 'Midnight Blue Star (a train), 'Supermarine S6' (a seaplane of course) and 'By Airship Over the Polar Ice'. A weak idea perhaps but it's lucky then that the music is good enough to syrvive on its own. From the exquisite opening 'Citroen DS' and the soothing 'Morini and the Italian Lakes' to the moody 'Ekranoplan', this classically crafted mix of clean synths, haunting effects and subtle precussion is in the Blue States vein, but somehow even better. No doubt we'll be hearing this on adverts and holiday shows everywhere soon."

Meanwhile David Sheppard writing in Q called it "a bucolic and often beguiling, listen" and gave the album ***.
