"Small and quiet places are the perfect breeding ground for fragile beauty that fights the inner demons, painting a poetic picture drenched in acid folk gentleness. Another very nice collection of songs by poet Alan Davidson, accompanied by a variety of instruments, with some great versions of Briget St.John, Ivor Cutler & a Lal Waterson songs, in a typical Kitchen Cynics style. Very inspired texts showing a poetic vision of tiny worlds situations that show a variety of perspectives, and a desire to open up like seeds. One track is a dialogue with Simon and Cara Lewis. All other songs are entirely multitracked one man performances. Like any Kitchen Cynics release, highly recommended. Alan's favourite songtitles : "I want you on a mountain top", "Snowflakes, oatcakes and earthquakes", "Lethargic lover", "Unwoozling invalid woman". If you have good memories on Pearls Before Swine, this is right up your alley... Packaged in stencil-printed fold-out jackets by design therapist Jelle Crama. Limited to only 150 copies."
