“Like scratchy field recordings gathered from dreams… unique and soulful.”
-David J (Bauhaus, Love and Rockets)

“Truly unusual and genuinely compelling.”

“Terry Gilliam describes the inspiration for his masterpiece Brazil – sitting on the chemical blackened beach of Port Talbot in the late ’70’s, imagining tuning into long wave broadcasts of vaguely familiar songs on his rusty wireless. Well, this is what he would have heard – Tom’s voice sounding like dust, tunes out of time, the ethereal humanness missing from the plastic perfection of the digital world.” -Dave McKean (artist and director)
