4 stars Volume 4 of the 'Long Hello' series has always been my favourite. What Guy Evans does here with his drumming and various percussion is very interesting. Starring some members of Mother Gong's alumni, we have an amazing array of experimental pieces, sometimes jazzy and sometimes spacey. Too many tunes here for track-by-track breakdown, but highlights are : 'Der Traum von Julius' - a strange piece full of mysterious tones, courtesy of Mr Jaxon's sax playing, 'Martha's Express Wishes' - complete with fast paced drumming and nice bass-playing, 'The Finger Points' - a whimsical percussive arrangement with amusing guitaring and 'Haben Sie Waffen Oder Funk Dabei ?' - which reprises Martha's E.W. but this time around with Glissando guitar. Never a dull moment on this record, and whilst sounding different from Van Der Graaf Generator, the ghost of that spirit is still to be found here.
