4 stars A very interesting debut by this band formed by Charles Hayward after the disintegration of This Heat. All the tracks have an aquatic theme and minimal arrangements, with the addition of Haywards voice you can't help but be reminded of Wyatt's 'Rock Bottom' Trade Winds is just a bed of ambient cymbals. Pearl Divers has a haunting tune .... Side two is more upbeat and hints at the Can-like sound they were to develop live, with experimental and found sounds incorporated alongside the driving rhythms. Splash is a great instrumental track, with water sounds and a complex melody played on the Autoharp, which they were to rework later. If you are a Charles Hayward fan you need this record, which is sadly very difficult to find.
