"Commercial document of Morris' short running (1997-1999) BBC radio 1 show, whose peculiar humorous slant has garnered a great many fans (seemingly exclusively drawn out amidst the electronica elite), placed him amongst the pantheon of great UK comic geniuses (har). While it's easy to see such gifted euphemisms as "Introduce me to Gladston (HELLO!)", "Cackle my Gladys", "Green Spunky" (all BadSex2) work their way into the cubicle-speak genus, it's feasible the main appeal of this particular item lies within the choice of backing tones 'neath the constant 'commentary'; tracks from Aphex Twin, Labradford, Amon Tobin, Funki Porcini, Herbaliser, Maxwell Implosion, Brian Eno, Propellerheads, Jimi Tenor, Fila Brazillia, etc... Altogether pretty damn funny stuff, rather overtly awkward in places (i.e 'Unflustered Parents') but mostly the sort of shtick you'd equate with the home-studio boffin/outcast lifestyle; detached and often a little too over-the-top/socially awkward. Riotous though, absolutely riotous." -- Hrvatski.
