Conceived as a soundtrack to composer Mike Smith's adolescent fantasy life, Invocation/Transformations finds the intricate minimalist textures and banjo mathematics of Muskox's previous releases regarbed in the electric finery of early 70s prog rock and the Canterbury scene.

Generic Organs began as a piece Jeremy Strachan wrote for our short-lived banjo and guitar duo. I took his music, inspired by Peter Hannan’s Generic Music, and kind of filtered it through Steve Reich’s Four Organs. A demo session yielded several decidedly maximalist organ solos by Ali Berkok that I trimmed and rearranged a little into the final middle section.

I was losing hope in finding new music that I would like. This was very pleasantly refreshing.
Richard Larcombe's guitar work is great, love the atmospheres, which are somewhat dark at least to my ears - in spite of the funny lyrics, which without a booklet I unfortunately cannot fully appreciate, not being a native speaker and not having the best English listening skills.
They instantly became one of my favorite bands. Gold. ale38

Excellent album. Very much Aksak Maboul. Nothing compares to this record (except maybe Sophie La Bévue that could feature easily on a Joseph Racaille / ZNR album - and that's a compliment). David Fenech
