4 stars The first Antique Seeking Nuns EP links up with the Canterbury scene.

It is a strange EP from a strange band. A band later morphed into Sanguine Hum and embracing the more commercial world of neo-prog in the process. Commercial is not this EP at all. It has it's base in the Canterbury scene. The more jazzy, but not so avant-garde part of Canterbury, that is. But this EP also have one foot in the post rock genre. The whole ethos seems post rock to me. But Frank Zappa too has made an impression on this band.

The opening instrumental track It's Pissing Don is excellent with it's mix of jazz, Canterbury and post rock. The following songs, some of them are vocals based, are also great, but not in the same class.

This twenty-six minutes long EP is a small jewel from England and one well worth purchasing. An email to the band should do the trick.

4 stars
