"Squeaky noise of what sounds like maltreated electronics and overdriven trumpet merged with disembodied chanting and a clattering of percussion opens the proceedings on Farewell Body Bags by Lambs Gamble. This brightly shining slab of fluorescent yellow vinyl takes no prisoners. Arid and stale airs are filled to the brim with scratches, screams, body blows of bass and freakishly HOT spices. A heady cocktail for sure, but in no way (too) academic. Lambs Gamble aims for and goes with gut feeling. Let's hope the coffee is strong enough to defend itself. The main question is: 'What's gestating in there?' An alchemist's broth of genuine musical prowess dedicated to full frontal weirdness, chock full of odds and ends to loose your way in - ocean currents to loose you feet; lava like rainbows blubbering down a mountain side with waterfalls and unicorns or flying wool sheep. Toads singing by the side of the pond - on a froggy night. Seems all quite natural too me; nothing contrived ortoo thought out and over. Living the life of taking a risk, not giving a shit and damn well knowing what the funk you're doing. And when. And how. The Cabaret Voltaire in yellow absinthe glow glory."-Sven Schlijper-Karssenberg, Vital Weekly
