“Elmet by Moonlight”, the third album in Jumble Hole Clough’s Music for Imaginary Puppet Shows series, has just been released.
It’s a collection of short soundtrack pieces created for animations that don’t exist yet, ’70s American cop shows and whimsical yet sinister children’s shows.
“A barking and crooked carnival… ridiculously essential… like Zappa’s Peaches en Regalia played on a fairground organ… Robinson always lets his imagination run free, so he won’t mind when others do the same…”
