Review

Mark Tranmer has made some lovely records over the years under different names such as gnac, Montgolfier Brothers. This is lovely instrumental acoustic music. lordy me, they always put out good records this lot. A bit of Durutti Column here, a bit of Smiths-ish guitar there. Heartily recommended.
