Taking the pulsing synths and woodwind of Phillip Glass or Steve Reich as a foundation, the latest album from Simon Bookish is a groovier affair than his half-and-half synthpop/spoken-word piece, Trainwreck / Raincheck (2006), based on his dream-diary. Dressed like an avant-garde children's TV presenter, and playing with the Periodic Table, on the album cover (handling an element marked "Sb", of course), the album announces itself as another peculiar way of looking at the world, or (let's not be coy), a queer way. As such, Chadburn lays on some inventively geeky puns in ‘Carbon’ – “Lake Michigan exudes a meniscus of petrol / Young man you amaze me! / Architect, Visionary! / Engineer, Poet! / Show me your sweet DNA! / Crystalline debris! Observing the C60”.
