Fantastic reviews for Blancmange’s ‘Nil By Mouth’ album

‘Neil Arthur is now making the most fully realised music of his life. A thrilling immersion in sound.’ MOJO

‘It’s a pleasure to find Blancmange thriving in the 21st Century with an instrumental album. Each whoosh and clatter remains to niggle in the mind.’ Q MAGAZINE

‘Multiple levels of aural delight.’ ELECTRONIC SOUND MAGAZINE

‘Intense, yet often exhilarating work.’ RECORD COLLECTOR

‘Exceeding expectations Nil By Mouth is a truly excellent album in its own right. It deserves a wider audience.’ ELECTRICITY CLUB

‘Music evoking films never written, scenes never soundtracked & popcorn never eaten . . . Arthur’s pop lineage gives him a unique ability to invent and divert tracks off their beaten tracks into musical hinterlands without losing his flair with a melody.’ MUSICOMH

‘The results are entertaining and gripping. Clearly Arthur has been having real fun playing with his toys.’ THE ARTS DESK

‘A delightful curio.’ CLASSIC POP
