The first thing they always ask is 'what's Rectoplasm?'

Rectoplasm is whatever you think it is, ranging from the unspeakable stuff slowly swirling around in the bowl of a clogged toilet to a concise description of 'the music industry' in general. And all points between them.

Once we were an 'experimental' band, in which guise we've done things like appearing on tribute projects to 'Syd' Barrett, Renaldo and the Loaf and Helios Creed as well as getting attention in our own wrong for things like our semi-improvised 'atonal' soundtracks to public domain prints of the great German Expressionist silent horror films (http://www.youtube.com/user/Zibethicus

However, after our album of painstakingly 'recreated' music from the (non-existent) sunken continent of Lemura was praised as a masterpiece by one reviewer, damned as a piece of something else altogether by another, and ignored by everyone else, we've finally seen the light, and repackaged our brand as a 'cult' 'rock' commodity.

 Homododo is the first release in this product line, and closely resembles a conventional rock album.

Its songs cover themes of ageing, impostors who pose as Buddhist monks, the imminent end of the Petroleum Age and the species which created it, the inherent inanity of pop music, the title track - which examines similarities between humans and dodos, linked financial and Arctic meltdown, sword-and-sandal films, ageing again, writing in the sky spelling out a name nobody knows, the gods of the human race (created by the humans in their own image) being too lazy and greedy to save humanity from global warming, and, finally, slips in time which seem to work backwards and forwards at once.

A couple of these tracks got airplay in Sydney and nationally (ABC Radio National and FBi Radio) when we sent out advance copies of the album. Now our long-delayed child is finally 'out' and tottering on its chubby infant legs to meet YOU. Make what you can of it... It's taken so long to get Homododo out that our next album, Spaceship of Fools, is nearing completion. Look for it - and possibly some 'gigs' in our local area of the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, Australia - in the near future. Unless you sincerely hated Homododo. In that case, look /away/ from it. Either way, good luck to you...
