“Edition of 200; includes hand-numbered inner sleeve. Stepmother is Lukas Simonis (Dull Schicksal, VRIL, Coolhaven...), Jeroen Visser (Kazanchis, ./morFrom/....), Bill Gilonis (The Work, The Hat Shoes, Hail...), and David Kerman (5UUs, Present, Thinking Plague, Aranis...). Anglo-American-Dutch post-punk prog-rock and experimental soundscapes with a dash of Monty Python thrown in. A reunion of an 80s band that never existed (but should have): twangy guitars, nifty keyboards, zany drumming, vocal histrionics à la The Rutles (well, sort of), lop-sided rhythms, regurgitated spam lyrics. What more could you ask for? The journey we are taken on introduces us to mass murderer Curtis Lemay, Serge Gainsbourg, sex ads, neo-liberal communism, Nigerian online scams, neo-surrealist blabbering, and Dickensian psycho fluff. But the record is much more than a sum of its parts -- and its beautifully packaged to boot, with artwork by Alfred Boland. Bill Gilonis: voice, guitar, bass, keyboards, clarinet, stylophone; Lukas Simonis: voice, guitar, wooden thing; Jeroen Visser: voice, bass, organ, synth, clarinet, baritone sax; David Kerman: drums, percussion.” - Megaphone/Knock Em Dead.
