Still based in the North-east of England, brothers David and Peter Brewis are on album number four now while still denying that Field Music is a band at all.

Plumb recalls their first two albums of what we must, I suppose, call angular pop. In reality this means one minute it's like listening to early Genesis, the next Smile-era Beach Boys, the next XTC and the next, um, 1980s Genesis. The easiest song to digest is the closing "(I Keep Thinking About) a New Thing", whose title says it all.
