Newell hadnt suddenly gone pro by any means- there were faint degrees of progression in the slightly clearer arrangements and more complicated instrumental passages. If anything, it proved his most enjoyably rollicking record yet, evidenced by the the drum-heavy boogie of Hand of Stone and the frenetic instrumental Fracas on West Street , a jam where the Cleaners bordered on shredding

The overall feel of this tape is 1968 Deram flip side whimsy punctuated with U2 windchimes and searing acid-guitars. There's lots of Syd too, (often filtered through Hitchcock) and Beatlesque '66 pop-rock (a nod to the deceased ex-Moondog) which, when added to the stoned between cuts chatter, gives an air of English eccentricity to the proceedings. There's a really refreshing breadth of material and Martin Newall proves that even with unsophisticated equipment, real songwriting talent shines through. Ace tracks are "Hand Of Stone" (an ecological blues with social and political comment), the apocalyptic "Blue Wave" and "Song For Syd Barrett". The latter isn't a blatant attempt to sound like Syd but the aura is definitely reminiscent of the man. Both sides flow out on almost ethereal instrumentals: "Radio Seven" with its harpsichord flavour and "The Winter Palace" with its collage of bells.
