4 stars These guys sure have a great sense of humour as witnessed by the ugly nun (haha) on the album cover. On the Wayside Music site the writer of the review there mentions that former World Champion snooker player Steve Davis introduced this band to him. If you don't know, Steve Davis is a huge Progressive Rock fan and lists VDGG and MAGMA among his favourites. Back to ANTIQUE SEEKING NUNS, these guys have put out three EPs that all have a Canterbury flavour to them and certainly Frank Zappa comes to mind as well. I understand that the 3 EPS are all we're getting from this band, at least under this band name. In the liner notes it says : "Joff plays his vocals, his guitars, a borrowed bass & his late night TV recordings. Matt plays his drums, his keyboards, his lowery organ & his old next door neighbors." Haha.

"It's Pissing Don ?" features cymbals, drums and vibes early then it gets fuller before a minute. Beautiful soundscape here. Lots of relaxed keyboards. How good does this sound before 5 minutes. So moving. "Little Machines" opens with strummed guitar and keyboards as reserved vocals join in. Drums and bass follow. A nice display instrumentally when the vocals stop briefly later on. "M.O.D.A.R." is experimental and spacey to start. Pulsating noises come in as the spacey sounds wash in over top. It's very electronic 3 minutes in. "Keeny Woka Phoola" reminds me of Zappa early on. Vocals before 2 minutes. "Earth Song With One Sugar" features electronics and keyboards to start. It changes though as drums come in. It's spacier 5 minutes in. Someone is screaming in the background late (probably someone who just saw the nun on the album cover).

Modern Canterbury right here folks, come and get it while you can.
