Jimi Tenor: Out Of Nowhere (Warp)

Ian Penman, The Wire, September 2000

SOMETIMES YOU just need a Song: one that makes you feel electric angels are sitting on your shoulder and whispering arcane formulae of timeless Passion into your ear: a Song of heat and mirage and shiver and suggesture... (After all, there's only so many times a boy can play Arto Lindsay's last album.)

Total word count of piece: 716
