Album: The Flowers of Hell, Come Hell or High Water, (Benbecula)

Composed and recorded in London, Toronto, Prague and Abilene (Texas), with the involvement of a small host of worthy musos, most of whom have form with Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, British Sea Power and Patti Smith.

Artwork by Aubrey Beardsley. It's prog, folks, the kind which aspires to bring the instrumentation of post-war electric rock to bear on the sensibilities of classical composition. Proper prog, then, with a formalist's sense of space and texture and no widdling. Enjoyable.
