    Recording information: 06/2000-10/2000.
    The former Royal Trux guitarist performs his primeval songs of dissolution and dislocation against a dark background of sparse instrumentation and the occasional percussion shuffle on this strangely ethereal collection. "Oh to Be Wicked Once Again" sets a wild rock & roll guitar solo against a sweet keyboard motif, "Chicken, You Can Roost on the Moon" is an improbably psychedelic tale of love gone wrong, and "Know That," which recalls the punk duo Suicide, is an almost Dylanesque put-down layered over a heartbeat rhythm track.

  • Critic Reviews
    Magnet (4-5/01, p.76) - "...Referencing touchstones of the past, from classic new wave to brightly hued Krautrock to minimalist psychedelia....NMH turns out to be a gas."
    Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.106) - "...Weird, exploratory and self-indulgent...his riffy virtousity is offset against tootling organ/vocal melodies for a garage sound that ranges from '60s psychedelic pop to full-blown prog..."
    NME (Magazine) (4/7/01, p.43) - 7 out of 10 - "...As far from conventional rock'n'roll as ever - rhythms are arhythmic, songs are dominated by deceptively clumsy, reverb-heavy guitar solos..."
