Future Music magazine described Mr Antell's output as "weird tunes, great rhythms", and I wouldn't argue. Seriously off-centre stuff, jam full of intriguing electronic blips and bleeps, eccentric samples and some real playing from a bunch of eclectic musos able to play everything from cut up rock to be bop. Then there's "Watersong" with an accompaniment entirely of sampled sounds of water splashing and gurgling! Then we come to Ben's surreal lyrics. "There's A God In My Garage" seems to deal with people who make gods out of cars. Then there's a spoken joke about a parrot and a Christmas dinner, a fragmentary look at materialism, a moody instrumental "Through A Glass Darkly" and the nearest thing to a gospel song "If You Find The Light" with a didgeridoo in the accompaniment. If you're looking for the avant garde this talented multi-instrumentalist from Sweden is your man.
