"It’s a feat of songwriting to get all the information across in that limited amount of time, to cram a verse AND a chorus and maybe a middle eight in there too. And all played on equipment that sounds like it’s held together with gaffer tape and covered with smears of jam."

Popical Island have released Plunderphonics, a 15 track tribute to the work of Big Monster Love, as a name-your-price fundraiser for the Simon Community.
