...Taking British folk as a point of departure, the music twists and oozes as a vile bunch of snakes, pairing gorgeous melodies and expert playing to ecstatically altered vocals and vicious lyrics. Rape, murder, witchcraft and abuse are main ingredients to the menu, which is cooked with raging madness, but still manages to taste delicately composed. One of the very few British folk LPs that creates a totally new, dangerous and utterly unique atmosphere. Obligatory music!! - Marcel Koopman (The Tapestry Of Delights)

Listening to First Utterance is like entering a different and strange world. The lyrics of Roger Wootton are very visual in a nightmarish almost medieval way. Timeless anthems such as Drip Drip, The Bite and Diana only get better with age. Totally unique and excellent musicianship; surely the heaviest album ever recorded with acoustic guitars?
