"A perfect collection of music to listen to after a rough day in cubicle world." - Michael Inman

"cumjoyous in the brilliant Jumble Hole Clough !!!! - like if Moebius did gtr, if Vini R got tagged in solitary - arid=minimum, v v v v good, like if Vision On was still on, top-hole!!!" -

"minimal electroacoustic soundscapes that evoke a serene place, a place where worms talk just below the surface and unseen owls drop subliminal messages" -

"Just listening properly to the Jumble Hole Clough album, "Three Bags Of Madder".....bloody hell, it's lovely. Colin Robinson you are beyond talented, man." -

" beautiful, swimmingly good" - Alice Artacus Mill

"The recording is as pleasing in the articulation as the conception - all forty-odd minutes of music consist of emotionally committed, highly accomplished, instrumental performance.
Even the most unadventurous listener should appreciate the compositional aesthetic and the technical skill in a lovely piece like 'Yeadon Aerodrome on a summer's afternoon, 1969'.
These sounds offer a gateway to the listener, a perspective from which they can observe their own inner and outer landscapes. This record is as intelligent as anything its author has released, but it is more felt than thought, and it is an achievement of exceptional beauty." - Oliver Arditi. Read the full review here:
