I really love the cover of this record, which I'm pretty sure must be from a work by Gustave Doré, famous for his wood engravings. Here you can get an idea of what I mean: http://dore.artpassions.net/ The choice and the drama of the unseen hands attempting to kidnap the baby from the mother are so incredibly evocative. How often have I mentioned the importance of covers!
The music is very reminiscent to me of the Natdamperen material I posted so long ago now on this website, it could just as well be a fourth N. album, with fusiony jazz-jamming and raw laryngitis-like sax melodies. It even has the same lo-fi 4-track basement-recording sound to it. Most of the compositions are by the keyboardist, Ronald Buijk.
