Listen, it's about time somebody told the truth about this band. And I'm going to be the one to do it. Yeah, yeah so I bought this before all the hype began to surround this band. Before everybody started loving 'em. It's a shame they're a bit shit really, otherwise I could have claimed to have discovered something great before anyone else.

So basically this 30 minute EP consists of two of the slowest, most completely mundane and painfully boring instrumental pieces of music ever. And that is all I have to say. If it wasn't for the absolutely gorgeous packaging (that made me buy the bloody thing in the first place) I'd have burnt this sucker the day after I got it.
