I only offer this as an introduction, rather than a full band review, because my space is against the clock having been slowed down with pneumonia for a while which means I have a backlog of introductions to sieve through, but, I am certain I will come back to take a closer look at Reptilians From Andromeda in due course.

From the five track Sonic Rabbit Hole (available on bandcamp) – the shortest and penultimate Wicky Wacky Witches finds the listener all kinds of contorted knots in a cellar. Synthetics spiral across the room like shooting stars as the flattened vocal gradually takes control while the persistent percussion binds the audience ever tighter into arching back, as though harnessed to a Breaking Wheel.

With a sorrowful lament Gözlerin, the sixth of the eleven tracks on the LP Iyelik Eki speaks of the situation in Turkey, whilst encouraging a unity of spirit and attendance of others in greater distress.

The most recent Sofar show in Turkey (on the 19th) was cancelled at the last minute due to a nearby suicide bombing in Ankara – the first show that the Sofar Team in Istanbul have cancelled through the conflicts, giving this particular track, from an earlier show an even more poignant message.
