a mythic re-imagining of the New York Rock n Roll scene 1972-1979, taking in nods to Lou Reed, William Burroughs & other staples of the period & marking the completion of a trilogy that takes in his previous record & 2011's '9½ Psychedelic Meditations On British Wrestling Of The 1970s & Early '80s'.

"Luke Haines is in the middle of a patch so purple that Prince is probably eyeing it up for a waistcoat. The brief wilderness of the mid-'00s has been followed by a run of albums at least the equal of his very best work with The Auteurs & Black Box Recorder. The sound is more varied than on his last few outings. From Suicide homage 'Drone City' to Jonathan Richman/rock 'n' roll romp 'Lou Reed Lou Reed', it's all very referential with enough cheek & wit to make it so much more than ripoff or parody" - digital spy.
