Holy heck. Masterpiece, everything! However, I admit I play this other-worldly dating tune most. Like inter-dimensional dating. Absolutely. Yes. Like an old Waitresses tune stood on its head and applied to quantum theory. Wonderful!!!!!
Favorite track: Take The Bait.
Pas de panique ! Ne nous affolons pas ! Il n'est pas déjà trop tard...Pour tout être humain qui ne connaît pas encore ce groupe fantastique, il est encore temps, d'autant qu'il s'agit selon moi de leur meilleur album : un véritable manifeste situationniste, un terrible traité de pataphysique, un petit bijou poétique...Que sais-je encore ; dire que l'on croyait avoir déjà tout entendu ! 21/20 !
Favorite track: Matter Of Fact.

a.P.A.t.T.'s fourth LP release, Fun with Music (Pickled Egg, UK), invites us to mingle with all manner of rogue characters, clothed in their trademark exploratory zeal. Revelling in the opportunities of time and sound, developed in oodles of places with ten musical personalities and 42 instruments, Fun with Music sees the band more refined and focussed than ever. Consider it their White Album.
A restless, relentless take on 21st century music and performance involving deconstruction, reconstruction and evolving
values. Redefining notions of failure and success. As with any a.P.A.t.T. product you can expect nothing but the best materials and finest blend of natural and synthetic resources shaped for your special day....more

Too many wrong notes? Maybe, but I've heard the alternative and this is much more preferable. In the "Rock In Opposition" tradition, Lost Crowns doesn't afford you the luxury of an obvious chord change. And it's lavishly entertaining! Either the catchiest Avant garde record or the dodgiest pop record you'll hear in 2019. Richard's writing and vocals are superb as always. Since discovering Cardiacs in 2012 and branching out to related acts, I've continued to hear some of the most inventive stuff out there, and this record takes the cake. Perhaps the crown, if it ever turns up. Adam Pearson
