The Critics are Dancing.....
The critics have been doing proverbial somersaults over the new Ergo Phizmiz album "Things to Do and Make", on Care in the Community Recordings.
"Phizmiz is a bona-fide songwriter juggling absurdist humour"- BBC
"Musical settings reveal an ear practised in making the magical brush shoulders with the mundane" - Drowned in Sound
"A genuinely intriguing album bursting with unusual sound effects, jaunty gypsy tunes, clackety electro, whistles, bells, typewriters and flashes of melancholy that all only hint at what this force of nature is capable of" - AU
"It’s very good indeed, but his idea of pop is a wholly individual universe of eccentricity, leftfield ideas and subversion, and all the better for it" - Americana-UK
"The first major and mainstream Ergo Phizmiz album may be a small independent release, but this album goes to show how major record companies have lost touch completely..ever so enjoyable...rather unique" - Pennyblack Music
"Bloody marvellous" - Clash Magazine
"Intelligent lyrics, fun melodies, frivolous and eclectic arrangement -- hell, he had me from the ukulele in the opening track" - Monsieur Delire
"A marvelous, manically-arranged set of odd pop songs" - Idletigers.wordpress.com
"Inventive pop, which is full of ideas" - Beyond the Noize
"Things to Do and Make" is available for order at Rough Trade, iTunes, Amazon, Zavvi, HMV, Play.com, and so on ......
