on the pan-Pennine analogue synth band's fabulous 4th album, actress Maxine Peake & bandmate Adrian Flanagan team up with Lias Saoudi & Saul Adamczewski of new label mates, Fat White Family.

' johnny rocket' is written from the persuasive point of view of an obsessional fan of a (fictional?) local band - The Moonlandingz (played by lias & saul), who gig around the (fictional?) South Yorkshire district of Valhalla Dale. if it all sounds too weird & arty then don't fear - it is surreal but it is also witty, inventive & very enjoyable indeed! "[they] counterpoint the conceptual excess by drawing on a lean, mean electronic palette, shared with Sheffield’s long line of experimental synth bands like Cabaret Voltaire & the Human League. They also mix in the retro knob-twiddling, narrative sonic oddities of the Radiophonic Workshop and Joe Meek, while the Fat White Family duo bring their trademark lurching fairground guitar rhythms and sleazy drama" 5/5 - telegraph.
