Reviews:

"Exceptional - from Wyndham Lewis' posh tones to some skippy jazz-hot from Jean Cocteau, this is unremittingly fresh and joyous" (The Wire, 10/2000)

"Wonderful. You could imagine Tim Burton using it for a camp re-creation of a silent frightener" (The Guardian, 11/2000)

"The most enthralling LTM project to date - should lie in every record collection, bar none" (Melody Maker, 12/1988)

"Blows the pants off most of the crap which passes for pop these days" (Marie Claire, 1988)
