Not sure how to describe this, but then thats not really our job...is it?
Heres a few words Hypnotic Chaotic Random Repetition
Indoorsman Records says: Lovely untutored repeato-strings. Hypnosis or patience test?

"Greatdividing is one of the most essential features of the Australian musical landscape. There are few who appear to be appreciative of its rough and rewarding terrain, but those who do know the geography better than most. The two bands here are one band. Both are comprised of Exiles From Clowntown alumni, arob and sootieb. The two loose, side-spanning manifestations on offer bear much in resemblance to the disjointed and purely engaging slop-rock of the Exiles. Its impossible to tell which is the �a-side� due to both being littered with several, seemingly unrelated numbers and sigils. In fact, the record appears to be a testament to irritation par excellence; it is a detested size (10�) assembled out of unpopular materials (polycarbonate), featuring bands that do not exist, playing music that moves an inch. But what an inch it is! Ill go with the Pho Band first; drum and guitar walk around the room uncomfortably, run into each other, shake hands and make nice before leaving for the pub. Repetition is the key here. Two old blokes in a room, the sound of encroaching senility (or refinement). Drunk, abject, confused, where else to go but down? Its ok, I can say that without fear of too much reprisal, arob used to be my landlord (sorry about the rug). The �other� side is similarly aimless n entrancing . Hypnotic guitar and what might be an organ or might not be push a rock up shit hill but never reach the top. Nor do they need to, it is the process that matters. Despite being a disreputably unreliable format, these two cuts sound bloody fantastic. If music appearing on a lathe is a deterrent for you, then you should probably sort your life out anyway." - Crawlspace Magazine.
