Oscillating and reverberating chaotically through sonic orbs and polyphonic sound textures, The Sign Of Four is a new creative concept from the Natural Yogurt Band's Miles Newbold. Hammer, Anvil & Stirrup is the debut album from The Sign Of Four on Jazzman Records and is spread exquisitely across 2x10" LPs in hand-printed sleeves and a digipack CD. Recorded live at Chicken Shack studios in Nottingham, real musical instruments are used to create a swirling jungle of throbbing palpitations, evoking the spaced-out vibes of an unsound mind. It's an infectious fermentation of debauched instrumental chaos, sometimes calming, but often unnerving, that will leave the listener bewildered, wide-eyed and gasping for more. The 11-track album also contains two tracks from Sun Suite, an alternative incarnation of The Sign Of Four, that see out the release in a less chaotic fashion, a sonic antidote to the preceding pandemonium.
