The ethereal soundtrack of Oxide, from the forthcoming release, immediately holds the attention as analogue synths and fuzzy guitar drift across the room through which the vocal peers through the rising mist. Whilst there is much activity in there is an unhurried dreamy spaciousness to the song.

A month long tour around England, Germany and Austria commences on the 14th, with five dates in Australia starting on the 30th of November.

Now – having taken time out concentrating on poetry and film he returns as Morrin with focus as a live performer of music of protest against a system that is failing the vast majority – by way of introduction – a rendition of the track You Show Me The Way.

Don’t anticipate a straightforward journey on hitting play as the approaching sixteen minutes, penultimate of the five tracks on the EP, Ghost Peppers (available on bandcamp) spills across the room.

Acid-jazz and psychedelia merge with progressive rock, that has an extemporised jam session feel to it as country and Russian folk also make fleeting appearance, attack the listener sending them off in to discombobulating disconnected sparks of ideas – yet – or because of its discordance holds the attention whilst the mind seeks to form its own connecting narrative.
