King Creosote, Tunng: Luminare, London
Pete Paphides, Times, The, 3 August 2005
TUNNG'S percussionist has a range of shells, chimes and beaded items of Middle Eastern persuasion available to him. But for their second song, 'Kinky Vans', he opts to bang a broom head on an old tambourine. To his right are two seated bearded men with long hair — Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay — absently picking on acoustic guitars. If any keepers of the punk flame have wandered by this intimate upstairs room, you wonder what they would make of this — or, indeed, the resurgent acid folk wave on which Tunng's recent debut album has arrived.
