shocking to think that the first of the three EPs collected
on the CD came out in 1998, and yet Lemon Jelly have only
just come to my notice - thanks to 'The Staunton Lick' being
playlisted on XFM rather than hearing any of their Radio 1
In what seems to have been a fairly dull year for popular
music, this CD lemonjelly.ky stands out shimmering
and twinkling among the dross.
It's an instrumantal album, really... just simple loops and
samples, melodic and gentle with neat bits of spoken voices
sampled from relaxation cassettes, and, in the case of the
fantastic 'The Staunton Lick', a teach-yourself-the banjo
'His Majesty King Raam' also happens to be the perfect Christmas
record, so eat your heart out Greg Lake.
Oh, and the packaging is to die for.
