‘The laid back, funky, jazz-rock vibe that characterises most of this album complements Toczek’s distinctive and, as ever, reassuringly calm, but equally commanding Yorkshire burr perfectly.’
Vive Le Rock!
‘Toczek has teamed up with producer and multi-instrumentalist Matt Webster and a number of high-calibre guest musicians to once again set his powerful verse in a dynamic context. Wit and cynicism are carefully balanced with a keen eye for the beautiful.’
‘Signia Alpha provide deep funk-bass… tight jazzy sax and clattering percussion around the thoughts stampeding through Nick Toczek’s brain. Poems you can dance to, stream and download.’
‘...just what the spoken word and jazz fans have been waiting for.’
