"That has to be the greatest father son photo ever seen!" - anonymous benefactor

"My earphones have tripped over so many fascinating toys over the last few years. Colin Robinson has hand-crafted quite a few of them. Click below, kids. You won't regret it. Trust me." - Craig Ewert

"I love what you're doing, very Hebden Bridge! If you like Capt Beefheart you'll love this." - Annie Honjo

"Oh my the latest offering from That Dadaist Krautrock Enoesque Funkness of Hebden Bridge Sir Colin Robinson... just get it, listen and tell EVERYONE you know about this AT ONCE you got that? If you like Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, Talking Heads, and just plain good music I know you will love this. This is some of his finest work to date and trust me... Colin there are so many subtle things whizzing around whirring back and forth and fading in and out this is simply some of your finest work to date." - Michael Inman

" I haven't listened to anything quite like this before." - Nancy Lowe

"Just listened to this guy and blown away!" - Dpa Rg

"Mad as a box of frogs. In a good way." - Kenneth Brown

"That crazy cat Colin Robinson" - Kipli, Music in the Mail radio show

"Great music; reminiscent of the great and mighty Stump." - Del Pike

"J'adore" - Sandro Mangas

"The best yet. Eclectic, playful, funky, even beautiful" - Mark Williamson

"You must listen to believe. Then, you will listen some more!" - Steve Barber, aiiradio

"Colin Robinson's one-man band freak ambient avant-garde guitar loop project Jumble Hole Clough is on a roll lately. Robinson's voice is a mix of Captain Beefheart and Tom Waits - the kind that will scare the shit out of impressionable children. Jumble Hole Clough doesn't sound like anybody else, but more like a dozen or so genres having a party." - Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood weblog

"Colin Robinson is back to his absurdist best. Bela Lugosi's Dad combines the twisty funk of mid-period King Crimson with his own rich and eccentric orchestration. Good news: he's making startling noises once more... It's full of anagrammatic lyrics, backwards guitars, psychedelic frisson, and the untamed honk of woodwind mouthpieces. Consistently at a right angle to anything else." - Cyberinsekt music blog

"Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee. Insanely catchy and quite nonsensical, it'll get you singing in the shower" - Roger Trenwith, Astounded By Sound

"a splendid album by the splendid Jumble Hole Clough... Courtesy of the extremely prolific and yet strangely enigmatic and attractive Colin Robinson..." - Liam Tungate

"it’s suitably bizarre and I like the occasional reminders of Joe Meek's spaced-out sounds." - Russell Mills

"“Journey to Hebden Bridge UK and hear existentialism and progressive sounds from across the pond. Elements of Pink Floyd, King Crimson and others combined to create originality” - Oddsfiche

"Undad, undad." - Roger T

Track Name: I reached into the chimney and pulled out a sewing machine (25th October 1415)
Look at what I’m building
I’ve built a giant moth
Armatures of silver
Coverings of golden cloth

I reached into the chimney once and pulled out a sewing machine

Runic goat a-courting
Out racing / can I go rut?
Cargo unit
Swept away down the cut

I reached into the chimney once and pulled out a sewing machine

A cog I turn
A man I hung
I cut on rag
I bite my tongue

Him that cryeth havoc
Should watch by day and night
The throne that I sit on
Was never mine by right

I reached into the chimney once and pulled out a sewing machine
Next time I went, it wasn't there.
Track Name: A cardboard box containing my mother's hair
53 men, huddled in the hall
To all intents and purposes, there’s no-one there at all
Just a little up the road, that’s where it will end.
Forgotten men around the bend

Get the mucus moving
Track Name: Abandoned Lunch Invokes State Of Nirvana
Bread & Butterflies
Bread & Butterflies
Imagine my surprise
Track Name: Twilight of The Mods
Sheep cannot climb the stairs in Monkey Boots
Track Name: Henry is still missing
Happy people over there
I count every one with care
I use Cuisenaire
Track Name: Rain / train / aeroplane
Rain / train / aeroplane

Wet wino phoned
With wooden pen
Open the window
And start again
Track Name: Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee
Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee
Fishing for cod in the Land of Nod
Feeding the hoards with Uncle Graham’s gourds.
Look what my brother can do

Ringing a rook in Daisy Nook
Building a nest in Budapest
Curing a lamb in Amsterdam
Look what my brother can do

Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee

Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee
Fishing for cod in the Land of Nod
Feeding the hoards with Uncle Graham’s gourds.
Look what my brother can do

Fighting a dwarf in Düsseldorf
Not getting caught in Ellesmere Port
Pulling pork without using a fork
Look what my brother can do

Sailing with me on the Zuider Zee
