Loosely tied together mind poems, with exquisite keyboards, intricate vocal percussion, with a pastiche of guitar bells and Scandinavian yodeling make up this resonant 1978 meisterwerk from the Austrian/Greek superband.

Yes indeed, Matty.Some may think "Dennis" Waterman to have been too loose in his interpretation of free tonal bell rhythm, but those of us fortunate enough to have seen the Deliriun at their breakthrough gig at Cardonald Primary in '76 can attest to his complete disregard of bourgeois fancies as "playing" and "performing", let alone the lame sellout of so-called "music". They shone a bright light, maybe it's time BCB saw it.

A bright light indeed in a recondite darkness. Especially the "tooth percussion" work pioneered by the pretransgendered Alexandopooloo Ktenidis.

A bright light, indeed.

Any love for the Dennis' band before his Greco-Austrian exodus, Wookey Hole's own favourite beat combo The Watermen?

Yes, a bright, bright light.

Bright, indeed.

Wookey, the progeny of the younger unhinged "St." Den(n)is? That was but Dennis Waterman's own half brother, sired by his father during a 1949 fact finding tour of East Timor, with a local medicine woman, can you not hear the Indo-Polynesian underpinnings of their sound?

Achh, I am much more of a Ktenidicle when it comes to such pre-Menagarie delights! Call me stolid; however there is something of the ribaldry that awakens the yearnings within.

Regrettably, the difficult second album Rule Of Lenska failed to ignite the public interest.

Yeah, it certainly wasn't any "With the Stoat", more along the lines of "Stoat for Sale".......

Scintillating stuff. Did anybody do it better?

2017 should see the release of some rare tracks, given the green light by Oriole's widow Nusfar.

I am particularly excited about 'Nolly Nolly Nolly' - recorded underwater near Phil Collins' studio, and featuring various sea creatures on natural percussion. If this is the future of music then LET ME IN! 8-)
