"The band came together in 2000, featuring members of The Renderers (Brian and Maryrose Crook) and Sandoz Lab Technicians (Nathan Thompson and James Kirk). Held up for years due to technical faults with the recording of 'Twister,' the band has at last salvaged a classic NZ album as great (or better) than we might expect from the conjunction of these two bands. In sound, it is a heavy atmosphere; ponderous psychedelic country (if you consider The Renderers country), adrift in washes of weird noise improv that somehow fits the songs best. A better soundtrack for Inland Empire than Lynch managed, and perhaps a sister album (at least spiritually) to Bardo Pond's Amanita. And when one thinks there is nowhere left to go after the still beauty of 'Weirder,' the album at last kicks up the tempo, finishing with the terrific rocker 'Slow Motion' (which is not that slow at all). For any who've loved the two bands that have merged here, nevermind the likes of The Terminals, Dadamah, Dissolve/Roy Montgomery, Flies Inside The Sun, Alastair Galbraith, etc., etc. Here's your next purchase."
