Taken from the album "Gongs Played By Voice", out now on Fortuna POP!

“It’s about a scarecrow who runs away from his farm, leaving the farmer (Leo) without a way to protect his crops from the birds. Luckily Leo’s friend Magician comes along, and although he can’t help him with the scarecrow due to union rules, he turns Leo into a cat to scare away the birds, and that is why birds to this day are scared of cats. The scarecrow also abducts Leo’s wife but I didn’t want to go into that in the song.” - Steven J. Kirk, The Chemistry Experiment

"Nottingham quintet whose flute-edged songs are as tuned-in to the prog sorcery of king Crimson as the reflective rootsiness of Will Oldham" (Mojo, 4 stars)

"A mere 10 years after their debut album, the Nottingham five-piece return with a record every bit as odd, absorbing and idiosyncratic as The Melancholy Death of...As that long hiatus suggests, the band go about things their own way, and thank God for that: this is the polar opposite of homogenised pop, swimming to the wilder shores and from there issuing pastoral psych-prog missives as absorbing as Leo & Magician, on which tribal incantations, motorik beats and lashings of Hammond underpin Steven J Kirk's basso profundo tale of a scarecrow that flees its job, and the magician who turns the bereft farmer into a cat. Bonkers, yes, but pretty brilliant, too." (The Sunday Times)

"The whole album is simply extraordinary." (Echoes And Dust)

"They’ve been gone for a decade, working, learning, absorbing, and the resulting record is a triumph of strangeness, one that will keep on delivering all its charms and weirdness the more that you listen to it. “Idiosyncratic” is one word for it; “stunning” another." (SoundsXP)
