Snout To The Grindstone

“From base materials that would confound the ambitions of lesser talents, Knockentiber pop alchemist Billy Paraffin and his pals conjure wonderfully ramshackle dancing music with lyrical depth. Variously wistful, vampish and dissonant, Snout To The Grindstone fuses electronic and acoustic instrumentation with a storytelling flair that suggests Jarvis Cocker recorded by Joe Meek. One of many highlights, ‘Triple Time’ blends an opening reminiscent of the ‘St Elsewhere theme into an essay of creepy office-based obsession before resolving into techno melodica. At first listen, the refrain of ‘People Like You’ seems to go ‘Billy you should be on top’. It doesn’t, of course, but as a sentiment it’s difficult to shake.”  Sean Welsh, The List
