It would of course be remiss of me not to begin this review with a reference to the fantastic Glaswegian band of the 1990s with a fairly similar name to this outfit. However, whereas The Yummy Fur sounded like Mars fronted by the son of Rab C Nesbitt, the music produced by their near namesakes is a far more diverse and experimental affair, ranging from the demented fairground music of opening track Strange the Friends to the lo-fi electronica of Golden Simon.

Some of the songs sound like demos the Pet Shop Boys might have made in their bedroom with an 8-track, but who amongst us is going to complain about that?
