red lp

Released: 21st Apr 2017


surely one of the greatest albums of 2017, it startled us with its sheer creativity, its cacophonous musicality, cascading textures of pure fiery energy – you must hear this.

a super-dense sci-fi mindf**k of a thing, music scholarship charity-case keyboards in combat with squally spacerock guitars, dub boom bass and multi-time-sig clatter; a territory staked out over mushrooms at break-time, but now gone all Escher in the aftermath, like a black and white architectural schematic drawing dipped in tie-dye. 'Mercury Fountain' doesn’t stop, a twenty nine minute surge of tracks that it would be a crime to split apart. It’s a two black Americano experience that makes me wish I still had pin-sharp hearing to lose” - Stewart Lee. “The Physics House Band writhe, glide, and brawl their way through a marvellous intergalactic journey” 5/5 – the wee review.
