More information: The Kscope edition of Henry Fool's long unavailable debut album from 2001. Re-mastered by award-winning engineer Andy Jackson, this version comes with new artwork by I Monster's Jarrod Gosling and a booklet featuring sleeve notes by founder members Tim Bowness and Stephen Bennett).

A distinctive combination of 60's/70's Progressive influences (Gabriel-era Genesis/Pink Floyd/Soft Machine), ambient experiments and hard-hitting group improvisations (King Crimson/Mogwai/Miles Davis), the album was released 12 years prior to its critically acclaimed successor Men Singing.

Alongside Bennett and Bowness, other contributions come from Brian Eno collaborator Peter Chilvers, No-Man live guitarist Michael Bearpark, Myke Clifford (sax/flute) and Pendragon/Steve Hackett drummer Fudge Smith. Two of the album's tracks were mixed by Steven Wilson, Tim Bowness's partner in No-Man.
