Wahey! It's album release time!

You can now buy our debut album "Zoetrope" from all good record shops in the UK. Or you can get it direct from Hello Thor Records here: 

We've already had some early and very kind reviews:

Louder Than War - "Even in quarter one of 2015, it’s clear that Zoetrope is going to be one of the albums of the year, so If you want some life-affirming, full throttle throbbing synth madness in your life too, you need to get on the Cantaloupe bus ASAP. Trust me, you’d be mad not to."

Colourhorizon - " album that is resolutely life affirming. Zoetrope could well be the party album of 2015."

Monolith Cocktail - "A most enjoyable pop-lit excursion through the kosmiche, taking in the industrial North’s steely resonation from the electric 80s, whilst popping off to take-in the post-rock locations that spawned such interesting, off-kilter explorers as Tortoise, Holy Fuck and Battles, and flirting with Afrobeat vibes."

Aye up,

If you weren't excited enough by next week's release of our debut album "Zoetrope", you can now stream it exclusively and in full courtesy of the good folk at Gigwise. Just follow this link:

In preparation for this, we've been getting our hair done and generally photographed mucking around in our favourite Sherwood-based grocery, the Thompson Brothers Greengrocers. These shots were taken by the extremely polite and talented Leigh Beard and are copyright him, so please ensure that he's credited if you intend to reproduce them elsewhere.

Finally, you may have noticed that we have a FEAST OF GIGS planned for April, May and June. We're really looking forward to stretching our legs in our new incarnation as a quartet
