Babylon Squeak loudly resent their new ear-splurge, available exclusively on the bandcamp website.
‘Nine Minute Holiday’ is a leper’s handful of new recordings, bittersweet eggheaded jammy sauciness spread generously across the toast of truth. As with their previous e-E.P. ‘Hoboho’, there are no videos to accompany the songs. “Why?” we hear a piteous wail. Well, one could argue that a visual representation can hinder, or limit, one’s individual interpretation of a song. Additionally, a promo film can be interpreted as a mere marketing tool, a larcenous and cynical exercising of the ego rather than a valid artistic statement. One could also raise the point that Babylon Squeak are too hideously deformed to be seen by a frail and sensitive public.
P.S. The Squeak hereby thank Si Beex for taking time out (from making his own record that will surely destroy your brains) by mastering their songs with his almost cavalier brilliance. “Good on your cobblers” as we believe they say in Godzone.
