Remote Viewers, The
Sinister Heights

Remote Viewers, The: Sinister Heights (Remote Viewers)
Label: Remote Viewers    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Walking jazz bass; dub depths; squawky brass from the Bristol funk-punk school; Miles Davis's cosmic electronica; squally free-jazz sax; scratchy guitar recalling King Crimson's no wave period; and a second CD of precisely arranged horns. This 14-strong British collective's eighth album - a demanding double - buzzes with apparently incompatible elements. For some, the fact that the Remote Viewers include former members of Rip Rig and Panic, God, the Fall, Morphogenesis and Evan Parker's trio will be enough. Sinister Heights offers a cram course in much of the music that mattered in the past 40 years."-Stewart Lee, Times Online
