As a band Django Django were clearly a unique proposition, mixing the US garage rock of The Monks with the playful sonic voyaging of Beck, and adding a dash of the freewheeling, surrealistic humor of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

Parts of Django Django’s third album find them sailing into uncharted territories, not least the driving title track (propelled by Anna Prior’s drumming), with its echoes of Krautrock and Suicide. By contrast, the trippy upbeat rock of “Tic Tac Toe,” with its enormous echoing hookline, will excite fans of the band’s rockabilly-influenced elements. It was cut from the same long recorded jam that produced “WOR” and “Shake & Tremble.” Meanwhile, the hazy Zombies-like summer pop of Champagne, which explores the joys and ills of alcohol, was inspired by a boat trip on the Seine that the Djangos enjoyed at the invitation of their label.
