Came From The Stars I Saw Them
"One of the highlights of my year, without a doubt. Visionaries follow their
muse regardless of the world around them and that couldn't be more true of
they came from the stars I saw them... Numbering as many as 30 in the past,
they've now trimmed down to a more manageable four-piece, but their music is
still as astonishingly catchy as ever, somehow combining krautrock, space
rock, free jazz, soul and funk into a pure pop concoction... with brilliant
titles and wonderful, hypnotic singalong tunes.... ahead of their time...
John Kennedy on XFM and in Dazed Confused
White Man Kamikaze
"They got the voice of the Pistols and the sound of the Clash. It's a dream
combo and to hear is to believe!"
Shimmy Rivers And And Canal
"Most likely to be mistaken for some kind of typo, Shimmy Rivers and and
Canal have a bi-weekly show on Resonance FM and a great retro website. Can
one band really sound like Nick Cave singing in the B52s?"
Drowned in Sound
"What a great record!"
Tom Robinson, BBC6MusicDJ: Richard Artrocker
