"The return of one of the most exciting acts that Twisted Nerve Records has ever had the pleasure of releasing records by. In a similar vein to 2003's Toolshed EP, by turns sinister, pulsating, throbbing, foreboding and uplifting, Toolshed's self-titled debut LPis like nothing you've ever heard before -- with knobs on. Call it Komiche-freakout-spacerock, call it avant-freejazz-opera, call it what you want, but one thing that it most certainly is not is music to have on in the background. This is music for the fully engaged only. Borne out a new outhouse backyard studio following the birth of his son, Graham Massey's Toolshed were formed as a houseband at Manchester's seminal club night of the same name some 6 years ago. Not merely content with having redefined dance music with 808 State, Graham Massey steers the good ship Toolshed into uncharted music territories. Comprising various members of Homelife along with a host of other musical mavericks, Toolshed grew into a psych-jazz-techno-orchestra, culminating at one point in a 28 piece big band performance commissioned for a three day workshop alongside Nitin Sawney at The Contact Theatre -- including a huge brass section culled from the Royal Northern College Of Music as well as a string quartet."
